Author Spotlight - Stephenia McGee shares her Chocolate Chip Cookie receipe

Here’s a great recipe for chewy chocolate chip cookies that one of my characters makes in A Legacy of Lies.
Montana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft and chewy, these sweet, triple chocolate chip cookies are the ultimate treat! Great for curling up on the couch with a glass of milk and a good book!
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
¾ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 12 oz pack semisweet chocolate chips
1 12 oz pack milk chocolate chips
1 12 oz pack white chocolate chips
Step One:
Preheat oven to 350*F. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl; set aside. Combine the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl and beat with electric mixer set on high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time; stir in vanilla.
Step Two:
Gradually add the flour mixture, beating well after each addition. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Step Three:
Drop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about two inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten the dough slightly with the back of a fork. Bake the cookies until golden brown, about fifteen minutes. Transfer to wire cookie racks to cool completely. Makes five dozen.

Presentation Suggestions:
Serve warm with a glass of milk or top with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce!

"I knew it was a Christian romance when I started reading. I didn't know it would have such unexpected twists and turns. Desperately needing to know what would happen next, I couldn't put it down until I reached the last page."
Judy T

"McGee keeps her story moving and the reader guessing, expertly juggling the elements of gothic suspense, cowboy romance, divine intervetion, and inspirational fiction. I enjoyed Legacy of Lies for its characters and unique mix of story styling."
Barbara Scott, author

"This book has it all: a nice quick plot, a massive castle, cowboys, a dark mystery, a cold seductress and a story that leaves you thinking about it long after you’ve finished the book. If you’re looking for one good read, I definitely recommend this book."
Patty Froese, author

"A Legacy of Lies is a heart-warming tale of a man's search for forgiveness. A blend of Western Romance and Big City Intrigue, Stephenia H. McGee takes the parable of the prodigal son and creates a modern twist readers won't see coming until the final page."
