Zombies and Cookies


No, this isn't a blog about zombies eating cookies, although I think they'd try if they saw what's been in our kitchen these past few weeks.

My husband has been on a baking frenzy - cooking up all of his old family recipes and mine too. We have ice box cookies, chocolate crinkles, mountains of fudge, sugar cookies, peanut brittle. I could go on but I'm making myself hungry.

That's the trick this time of year - trying to think of something besides the mounds of cookies. And "rewarding" myself every five minutes.

So to move on, let's talk zombies. My Zombie Valentine is due out in stores any day. And I have a copy right here for a lucky winner!

Lonely New Orleans voodoo shop owner Amie Baptiste decides she’s had enough romantic disappointments. Amie is going to find mister right come hell, high water or voodoo. But when she uses magic to call the perfect man for her, she should have been more specific. Who knew her ideal mate died 198 years ago? When a sexy, well-spoken zombie gentleman shows up at her door, Amie gets much, much more than she bargained for.

Tell me your favorite cookie and you're entered. I'll pick a winner this coming Tuesday.

During the holidays I cannot name a favorite cookie other than the pizzelle. Every Christmas we would get a box of goodies from my grandmother including tins of pizzelles (usually anise flavored).

Which reminds me, I need to bust out my pizzelle iron...

Happy Holidays! ;)

Angie Fox said...

Hmm...in retrospect, this isn't helping with the cookie cravings. Oh well! 'Tis the season. Now what are pizzelles?

Diana Dang said...

I like all cookies! But, I guess I would have to go for white chocolate macadamia nut too

Sara M said...

Snickerdoodles, hands down, are the best cookies ever!

I'm old school. I prefer yummy chocolate chip cookies. In a rough second place would be sugar cookies with lots of homemade frosting...

I'm so glad I don't have all the ingredients in my house right now.

Oatmeal cranberry white chocolate chip? Do you mind if a random author or two stops by your house? Like in five minutes? Those sound fantastic!

Angie shame on you with a cookie contest at the holidays, putting pounds on just reading everyone's comments and faves so to add to the problem here is mine...
Favorite cookie is an ooey gooey fresh hot out of the oven chocolate (of course) chip with pecans for some crunchy goodness. (Hey who let Pirate in here to eat all my cookies???)
Did I mention you could enter my name in the drawing, no not yet, please and thanks for this wonderful opportunity to win what looks to be a very fun reading experience....

I am British so we eat biscuits and not cookies! Well I am sure there are alot cookies around now but I am in Austria and cookies aren't big here either...

However my favourite biscuit is called Bourbon. No alcohol...just two chocolate like biscuits with cream in the middle. I love dunking them in my coffee and then eating them ;)

heather said...

I have to go with the traditional sugar cookies with icing of course. :) At Christmas time, I also love my Aunt's chinese noodle cookies that are covered in melted butterscotch chips....yummy!!!

I just wanted to say, I loved working with Angie on this story. No matter how many times I've read it as her CP, it makes me cry every single time. It is awesome.

FWIW, I love gingerbread men. :)

But I don't need to be in the contest.

Awesome story!
