DIY Friday: Stealing Death Cookies

That probably sounds odd. What I mean is, Janet Lee Carey's book launch party for STEALING DEATH is tomorrow night, and I'm making cookies for the event!

I can't wait to see the book in the flesh, so to speak, after getting to hear it week by week at our writing group - isn't the cover gorgeous?

The setting for STEALING DEATH is a drought-parched land inspired, in part, by the African desert. So I thought, what better cookies could I make than an African-inspired recipe? I hunted around and found a few: African Corn Meal Cookies, Kashata Na Nazi (coconut candy from Uganda), and Makroud, an Algerian date cookie. Yum. I'm not sure which to try first.

Janet will have a live Marimba band and will be serving Kuhl, a coffee-like drink directly from her novel, and other treats. The party is at Parkplace Books in Kirkland tomorrow eve. I hope to see you!


  1. You are so awesome. Can't wait to try any of those cookies!

  2. I wish I could be there to help you make the cookies. :)

  3. I wish you could, too, Erin! The first batch of corn meal cookies just went in...crossing fingers...

    See you on Saturday, Jaime!

  4. YUM!!! Can't wait to try them, Holly!
