It's Too Yummy Tuesday!
On select Tuesdays I share delicious recipes either inspired by my books or that are just plain delicious!
I've been writing the three final books in my Sons of Herne series, including Feillor: God of Lammas. His love interest, Salina, is a pagan witch who bakes traditional fare during her sabbat celebrations. Well, traditional until the god of the first harvest shows up, anyway. This all got me in the mood for sabbat-themed cooking, so I dug up a very simple recipe for sabbat cakes that are great for any time of year.
Simple Sabbat Cookie Cakes
3/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon or orange juice
2 tsp. grated lemon or orange zest
2 cups. flour
Optional: a handful (up to 1 cup) of chocolate chips, raisins/craisins/dates/prunes, or finely chopped nuts
Cream the butter and sugar in medium bowl until light. Beat in eggs, lemon juice and rind until well-blended. Stir in flour until combined; fold in chopped fruit/nuts/etc if using.
Cover and refrigerate until firm. Shape dough into one-inch balls and place on a greased cookie sheet (about a dozen to a sheet). Bake at 375 for 8 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
