The Ghosts of Cookie Bookie Past

Welcome to Cookie Bookie,
my annual blog event in which I share frightening books and fantastic treats.
Today's cookie bookie features beloved ghosts from the past, lest we forget. Let's look back at some of the favorite tricks and treats featured in Cookie Bookies of yesteryears. Isn't she a beauty? This cinnamon-scented soft pumpkin cookie with rich browned butter frosting makes a charming companion for William Kelly's Witness. (Here's the recipe.) Poolr little schizophrenic cookie features a blend of chocolate and vanilla doughs, studded with colorful Halloween M and Ms, for nibbling with Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Click here for the recipe.
Dark and spooky, this ganache-glazed cookie will keep you satisfied while reading Stephanie Meyer's guilty pleasure, Twilight. It's right here.
C'mon, you know the kids can't resist a good roll-out cookie. These gingerbread pumpkins are sturdy enough for chubby little hands yet yummy enough for kids from one to ninety-two. Thoroughly immerse yourself in the pleasures of the young at heart with Roald Dahl's The Witches. Head on over.
I keep these around when I want to please the masses on the cheap. They're soft and crinkly, chock-full of ginger and molasses flavor and that pleasing chewy texture. And speaking of pleasing the masses, did you know that Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the most common favorite books? Presto-it's here.
Crack open a book and mix up a batch. Sit by the fire and enjoy the shivers while you're safe at home for Cookie Bookie.

I'm so glad you reviewed the cookie bookies of yesteryears.
I think I need a cookie for breakfast and to stay in bed and read all day. I'm so glad you reminded me of all this. :)

Thanks, anonymous! I need reminders for myself, too. Good recipes are like old friends and shouldn't be left on the shelf for too long.

You have inspired me Prudy! I whipped up a batch of Monster Cookies this weekend and cracked open a good mystery! I'm going to have to do an extra lap to burn off the cookies I consumed while I was reading my "bookie"!
