Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

Books With Cookies And Milk (28)


By:  Bruce Degen

     This story is about a young boy and his bear friend.  The two romp through a world filled will all kinds of berries.  The boy and the bear feast on all kinds of berries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and more.  This is a book with fun illustrations and rhyme.  Bruce Degen did a wonderful job with this story!  If you love berries, you’ll love this story.

Berry Jam Cookies

3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
2 egg yolks
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup fruit preserves, any flavor


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

     In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and egg yolks. Mix in flour a little bit at a time until a soft dough forms. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. If dough is too soft, refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes. Place balls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Use your finger or an instrument of similar size to make a well in the center of each cookie. Fill the hole with 1/2 teaspoon of preserves.

     Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown on the bottom. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

Don't Forget The Milk!
