Snickerdoodles – Rebekah Weatherspoon

I’m not a good cook, but I love to bake. When it came to Better Off Red and thinking of the scents and tastes surrounding my vampire queen, Camila, snickerdoodles come immediately to mind. Here’s a super easy recipe from Betty Crocker.

~ ~ ~



1 package Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix (or the cake mix of your choice. also works with sugar cookie mix)

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

1 egg

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Step 1: Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick cookie sheets). Mix cake mix, butter and egg in large bowl with spoon until dough forms (some dry mix will remain).

Step 2: Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Mix sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Step 3: Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

optional Step 4: If you like soft cookies, like I do, before cookies completely cool, put them in a ziplock bag or plastic container. Seals in the moisture and the soft freshness. 🙂


Better Off Red


Every sorority has its secrets…

And college freshman Ginger Carmichael couldn’t care less. She has more important things on her mind, like maintaining her perfect GPA. No matter how much she can’t stand the idea of the cliques and the matching colors, there’s something about the girls of Alpha Beta Omega—their beauty, confidence, and unapologetic sexuality—that draws Ginger in. But once initiation begins, Ginger finds that her pledge is more than a bond of sisterhood, it’s a lifelong pact to serve six bloodthirsty demons with a lot more than nutritional needs.

Despite her fears, Ginger falls hard for the immortal queen of this nest, and as the semester draws to a close, she sees that protecting her family from the secret of her forbidden love is much harder than studying for finals.
