So, sorry Terry it's taken me so long to get to your book(s). SAVING SCOTT was amazing and I devoured it in one sitting.
But...today's post isn't really about the book, but about something I found in the book. Terry's main character, Ashley, is fixing to open a bakery so she bakes throughout the entire book. In one scene she's making a chocolate cookie with cayenne pepper in it. Yep, cayenne pepper. In a chocolate cookie. Sounded intriguing.
Even cooler, when I reached the end of the book, Terry had included the recipe for the amazing-sounding Spicy Aztec Chocolate Drops. Yes, she did.
And I had to make them. Well, me and Nebalee with some help from Kyzzer and Asset.

|Starting to come together|
|Asset rolling the cookies in sugar|
|Kyzzer did about three cookies to Asset's one|
Definitely worth a try. Click on over to Terry's Place to get the recipe. And while you're at it, click on the link for the book and buy that, too. There are a whole lot more recipes at the end of the book that I might or might not try. And the story's pretty darn good, too.
