Christmas Cookie Recipe from Tiffany Reisz, Author of One Hot December + Giveaway! (US/Can only)

One Hot December (Men at Work #3)
Tiffany Reisz

Hard as steel... and hotter still!

Never mess with a woman who carries a blowtorch in her backpack. Welder and artist Veronica "Flash" Redding's playful sense of evil sometimes gets the better of her. Like when her insanely handsome, wealthy, suited-up boss gave her the most sensuously wicked night of her life…then dumped her. Yep, revenge is a dish best served hot.

Only Ian Asher isn't quite letting Flash get away quite so easily. He's not ready to forget the intensity between them. The searing heat when they touch. And the deliciously demanding control Ian wields in the bedroom. Now he has only the holidays to convince Flash that they belong together…and that even the most exquisite, broken things can be welded back together.

Tiffany's Super Easy Shortbread Christmas Cookies


In One Hot December, Christmas cookies are a major character. Well, maybe a minor character but a very important character. Here’s my favorite cookie recipe below.

Happy Holidays! And remember, no matter what holiday you celebrate, I will always eat cookies with you.

You'll need:
2 cups flour
½ cup powdered sugar
½ lb butter (gotta be butter, don’t use butter substitutes)
Colorful frosting—red, green, gold, blue, go crazy
  1. Cream butter and sugar
  2. Add flour, mix really well
  3. Roll out and cut into shapes (circles are easiest and then you can pretend they are shaped like Christmas ornaments)
  4. Bake at 350°F until light gold
  5. Let cool
  6. Smooth on the frosting and serve!

About the Author


Tiffany Reisz is the author of the internationally bestselling and award-winning Original Sinners series for Mira Books (Harlequin/Mills & Boon). Tiffany's books inhabit a sexy shadowy world where romance, erotica and literature meet and do immoral and possibly illegal things to each other. She describes her genre as "literary friction," a term she stole from her main character, who gets in trouble almost as often as the author herself.

She lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband, author Andrew Shaffer, and two cats. If she couldn't write, she would die.
