You may or may not have been wondering where the heck I've been the past few weeks. And for the first time in a long time, I have a good excuse: my new book, The Ultimate Shortcut Cookie Book: 745 Scrumptious Recipes that begin with Refrigerated Cookie Dough, Cake Mix, Brownie Mix, or Ready-to-Eat Cereal came out this month and I've been running around promoting it and baking up copious amounts of cookies for different media venues. It's been very fun (and there's more to come), but a bit exhausting, too.
The book is a compilation of four of my previous books: Cake Mix Cookies, Brownie Mix Bliss, No-Bake Cookies, & Cookie Dough Delights, plus a host of new recipes developed for the collection. It's hardback, and has beautiful photos, both thanks to my new publisher, Sourcebooks, Inc. (Cumberland House, my former publisher was purchased by and is now one of their imprints).
The Shortcut Cookies Blog!!!
To share the book in brand new ways, I am thrilled (thrilled!) to be launching an accompanying blog: Shortcut Cookies. I'll be sharing many, many cookies from the book, offering giveaways, hosting guest posts from other bloggers (you! email me :)) chronicling their Shortcut Cookie-baking with recipes from the book, showing videos, and so much more.
All-Natural Mixes & Gluten-Free Mixes!!!
I tested the recipes in the book using Traditional Cake Mixes, Brownie Mixes, Cookie Doughs, and Cereals. But I am thrilled to report that the options extend to All-Natural Mixes & Doughs and Gluten-Free Mixes, Doughs & Cereals. It's true. It's fabulous. It's scrumptious. And it means that more people than ever before can have their shortcut cookies and eat them, too!
I hope you'll follow me in my new adventure; I promise it will be lots of delicious fun.
And fear not: I love Enlightened Cooking more than ever, and can hardly wait to get back to posting (look for me feta post later today).
