COOKIES and COOKIE RECIPES
Clara Bess started out baking like most other cooks and chefs—with the basics. There were oatmeal cookies and chocolate chip cookies. And of course, there were sugar cookies, especially at Christmas time. As a staple item in her bakery, they are available throughout the year, for a variety of functions and celebrations. It was from a simple crescent-shaped sugar cookie that she derived the name for her shop: Cocoa Crescent.
Of course, Clara Bess also made cocoa cookies, from a generations-old family recipe—which she adapted, of course.
And today’s post wouldn’t be complete without traditional crescent cookies. Clara Bess started with the standard, played with it, and came up with her own creation—hazelnut cookies dredged in cocoa.
I’m ‘bout ready for some Christmas cookies? How about you? Which do you prefer—sugar cookies or ginger cookies?

“I once said I should write down all the story ideas in my head so someone could write them someday. I had no idea at the time that someone was me!
Ms. Mason has been writing since 1995, and began working in earnest on her debut novel, Tessa in 2013. Meanwhile, she cranked out a few dozen poems, and made countless notes for story ideas. Ms. Mason lived with depression for many years, and the inherent feelings of worthlessness and invisibility; she didn’t want to be who she was and struggled with her own identity for many years. Her characters face many of these same demons.
Ms. Mason has lived in the Upstate of South Carolina since 1988. She lived in Colorado for sixteen years, during which time she: went to high school, got married, had babies, got divorced and went to college. Her “babies” are now grown, two have babies of their own. She currently lives alone, with her five cats.
Ms. Mason writes Christian-worldview–in other words, there’s no salvation message, but there are plenty of characters who know the Lord and share His perspective with those who are struggling.
