Author Katy Lee AND Sweet and Salty Reindeer Noses

Katy Lee

My guest today Love Inspired Suspense author Katy Lee is going to share a fun holiday recipe–Sweet and Salty Reindeer Noses. Get ready, This sounds like FUN! (BOOK GIVEAWAY TOO)

a cookie factory

Hello, I’m Katy Lee and I hope you brought your sweet (and salty) tooth. Tis the season to be covered in flour and chocolate as I stand among the tastiest holiday treats from my generation’s past. My kitchen has been turned into a cookie factory made from my too-numerous-to-count recipe cards that

I really should rewrite sometime. However, there is just something about an old, yellowed index card with batter stains dripped on it from previous years and family members that tells me the holidays are here.

My gift to you today is a sweet and salty recipe that is easy to make for all ages. In fact, it is the recipe we as kids would be assigned to make while my mother deep fried her snowflake cookies in the hot boiling oil. She also had a cookie factory running all day, and we were put to work…in the safe zones.

My safe and easy treat

is Sweet and Salty Reindeer Noses. They’re not only easy to make, but they cheer up your cookie plate and add a little variety from all those typical circle cookies.

I chose this treat today because my heroine in my latest Christmas book, Silent Night Pursuit, is a little like this cookie—and I don’t mean she has a red reindeer nose. I mean she’s not your typical Southern Belle.

Lacey Phillips is a race car driver.

Lacey prefers her fire-retardant racing uniform to gowns, and her hair sports a perpetual helmet head instead of the latest up-do. She’s sweet, but she can hold her own on the track as well as any of the men coming up on her right. Let’s just say, like these reindeer noses, she adds a little variety to the track…and brings a little cheer to Wade Spencer too. Trust me when I tell you, as a soldier with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, he could use it. I do hope you will check out Wade and Lacey and Wade’s service dog, Promise, as they race to escape a resurfacing past out to silence them forever.

And now for your recipe.

DEC reindeer nose

Mini pretzels

Hershey Kisses (milk or dark)

M & M’s (red)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place pretzels in rows on a baking sheet, then place one Kiss in the lower center, so the upper round curves look like antlers. Place baking sheet in oven for about 3 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven and immediately place an M &M on the top of each kiss and push down to press the Kiss into the pretzel. Place pan in fridge to cool, remove from pan and place in container. Keep the container in the fridge. Enjoy!”–Katy

Lacey Phillips believes Captain Wade Spencer knows something about her brother’s mysterious death. So she throws caution to the wind and tracks him down on Christmas Eve looking for answers. Wade tries to turn her away—until bullets start to fly. He doesn’t want to take the stubborn beauty on his life-or-death mission to find out the truth about how Wade’s past may have cost her brother his life. But with killers lurking everywhere, he has to protect her—especially when she breaches the walls around his heart. Can Wade and his faithful service dog keep Lacey alive long enough to figure out who’s targeting them?

It's going to be hard, Lacey

    Hi I just received a email saying I had won a prize. I apologize for being slow to reply. I love to read and I am looking forward to the prize I won.

    I love recipes; my favorites are those that are handwritten! I collect them, as well as make them!

  3. Sunnie says:

    Lyn, I love collecting recipes! On my computer I have files of them, and in my pantry many, many recipe books, especially ethnic and cultural types, including many foreign language ones. Then I have some that are on those old 3×5 cards or 5X7 cards and in little file boxes. You name it, I probably have it. I will be adding this cute little recipe to my computer collection!

  4. Katy Lee says:

    Your granddaughter will love that it’s a cookie she made all her own.

    Thanks for having me today, Lyn!
