From Sonja's Recipe File: Breakfast Cookies

A Novel Creation: Breakfast Cookies

If you’ve been following my blog you know I am writing a novel and letting anyone interested follow along. In my book, Sonja, a young entrepreneur has purchased a coffee shop in Door County, Wisconsin. Sonja had big ideas. The fancy biscotti and prepackaged muffins do not go over well and she turns to a family favorite recipe for cookies.

I have made these cookies and they are great. Since my post about the cookies, I have had people ask me for the recipe. So here is the basic recipe. These cookies are good plain, but you may want to try a few variations as Sonja has done, such as adding butterscotch morsels or almonds. Have fun and if you haven’t already joined my blog, now is a good time to start. I post my current word count as I push toward my 80,000 word goal every Wednesday. I will post additional recipes from Sonja on Fridays.
