Cooking with Author Katy Lee! Leave a comment for a lobster cookie cutter!

Welcome to the Patchwork Quilt blog, Katy Lee!

Thank you, Alice, for having me as your guest during the Christian Book Launch! I’m excited to share a cookie recipe with your readers. I decided to make it cookies because of the holiday season, but also because my heroine in WARNING SIGNS loves to bake cookies. Miriam Hunter is deaf and uses American Sign Language to speak. In the book, she signs the word cookie like this:

For my cookies, I baked Lobster Sour Cream Sugar Cookies. Cut-out cookies are festive, but I chose the lobster to go along with the cover of my book WARNING SIGNS. It has lobster traps strewn on the rocks. One commenter on this blog will get a cookie cutter of a lobster as well, so you can make them, too!

Miriam doesn’t make these lobster cookies in the book. She does make others, but she’s got too much going on and needs to get out of the way of danger.

Here’s a bit more about WARNING SIGNS:
When a drug-smuggling ring rocks a small coastal town, the DEA sends Agent Owen Matthews to shut it down. A single father with a deaf son, Owen senses that the town's number one suspect—the high school's new principal—doesn't fit the profile. Miriam Hunter hoped to shrug off the stigma of her hearing impairment when she returned to Stepping Stones, Maine. But her recurring nightmares dredge up old memories that could prove her innocence—and uncover the truth behind a decades-old murder. Yet Owen's help may not be enough when someone decides to keep Miriam silenced—permanently.

Alice, when I read "lobster cookies" - I couldn't believe I read it correctly but reading through the post it makes sense. They sound delicious.

It does get your attention, doesn't it? :-) Thanks for stopping by, Janis, and for your comment.

I thought that you really put Lobster in the cookies. I'm so relieved!

:-) I think most are relieved, Kara~

Katy Lee said...

You ladies are so funny! No lobster was hurt in the making of these cookies. Maybe I should have put the disclaimer right up at the top. :)

Thank you all for stopping by!
