Recipe Ginger Crackle Cookies from Mistletoe at Moonglow by Deborah Garner

The Timberton Hotel has always provided a perfect Christmas retreat for regular guests, as well as newcomers. But the small town of Timberton, Montana, hasn't been the same since resident chef and artist, Mist, arrived, bringing a unique new age flavor to the old western town.

When guests check in for the holidays, they bring along worries, fears and broken hearts, unaware that Mist has a way of working magic in people's lives. Old-fashioned time spent together, exquisite food, conversation and a snowball or two offer guests a chance to trade sadness for hope. One thing is certain: no matter how cold winter's grip is on each guest, no one leaves Timberton without a warmer heart.

"Christmas at the Timberton Hotel is special. The beauty and peace people find there is magic. Strangers come to escape their pain and find solace and strength. I loved this story. It gave me a sense of hope. The characters are amazing." 

"Deborah weaves a beautiful mosaic of Christmas sights, sounds and smells and introduces us to memorable characters. From the grieving widow to the five-year-old child who lost his brother to a reclusive scholar who only wants to sit in front of the fireplace and read, each are treated with genuine emotion and care which adds to this uplifting story."

 "Deborah did it again. What a great christmas story. I love christmas stories and this will be one that I will read year after year."

From Mistletoe at Moonglow
Ginger Crackle Cookies Recipe by Kim McMahan Davis, from Cinnamon and Sugar and a Little Bit of Murder


2 1/4 (10 ounce) cups flour
3 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons (4 ounces) unsalted butter at room temperature
1/4 cup (2 ounces) vegetable shortening
1 cup (8 ounces) granulated sugar, plus 2/3 cup for rolling
1 large egg
1/4 cup (2 fluid ounces) molasses
1/2 to 3/4 cup crystallized ginger pieces, finely chopped


Position oven rack to the middle.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line cookie sheets with parchment or Silpat.

In large bowl, combine flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt.  Whisk until well blended. 

In another large bowl, combine butter, shortening and 1 cup sugar.  Beat with mixer on medium-high speed until well combined. Add egg and molasses and beat until well blended.  Pour in the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until well blended.  Add crystallized ginger and blend in.

Pour remaining 2/3 cup sugar into shallow bowl.  Using a small scoop, make 1-inch balls with dough.  Roll each ball in sugar and set 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.  (If dough seems too soft to work with, place in refrigerator for a couple of hours.)

Bake one sheet at a time until puffed and slightly browned around the edges, about 10 - 13 minutes.  Let cool on sheet for 5 minutes then place cookies on wire rack to cool completely.

To make ahead:
The dough can be made, shaped and rolled in sugar through step 3, then frozen for up to 2 months before baking.  For best results, position the shaped dough snugly on a small cookie sheet and freeze until very firm.  Then pile the frozen balls into a heavy-duty freezer bag and store in the freezer.  When you’re ready to bake, remove only the number of cookies you need, place them on the prepared cookie sheet and leave them on the counter while the oven heats up. Bake as directed.

Silver Bells at Moonglow
Christmas at the Timberton Hotel arrives each year with a unique set of guests, some returning, some new. When this holiday brings a celebrity seeking reprieve, sisters who are distant yet closer to each other than they think, a widow approaching a new horizon, and an eclectic smattering of local townsfolk and visiting relatives, the season is certain to be eventful. Add in a hint of romance and there's more than snow in the air around the small Montana town.

Elegant decor and exquisite cuisine from resident artist and chef, Mist, form a backdrop to much needed camaraderie, bringing strangers and friends together. When the last note of Christmas carols has faded away, the soft whisper of silver bells from the front door's wreath will usher guests and townsfolk alike back into the world with hope for the coming year.
