Last night we got together again for book club. Randi chose this month's book, "Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder" by Joanne Fluke.
Hannah already has her hands full trying to dodge her mother's attempts to marry her off while running The Cookie Jar, Lake Eden's most popular bakery. But once Ron LaSalle, the beloved delivery man from the Cozy Cow Dairy, is found murdered behind her bakery with Hannah's famous Chocolate Chip Crunchies scattered around him, her life just can't get any worse. Determined not to let her cookies get a bad reputation, she sets out to track down a killer. But if she doesn't watch her back, Hannah's sweet life may get burned to a crisp.
Randi fed us dinner while we discussed the book and then we had a cookie swap! Throughout the book there were several cookie recipes and after our last book club meeting, Randi had asked us to chose a cookie recipe from the book, make them and bring them this month to share with everyone. It was really fun to try some of the cookies we had read about in the story. :) I made Regency Ginger Crisps, Randy made Old-Fashioned Sugar Cookies, Savannah made Black and Whites and Vanessa made Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies and Pecan Chews for herself and Tammy to bring. Until next month when it's my turn to host!
