Please join me in welcoming Delores Fossen to our Holiday celebration. Delores is a sister Romvet with me, as she is an Air Force Veteran. Delores and I along with Lindsay McKenna are in the holiday anthology Coming Home for Christmas from Harlequin Books.
What do you make, bake or create for the holidays, Delores?
I make lots of cookies and candies for Christmas, but pralines are a family favorite. Here’s the recipe I’ve been using for more than 30 years:
Mix 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of white sugar, 1/2 cup cream and 4 tablespoons of butter in a heavy saucepan. Stir constantly over medium heat until candy reaches the “softball stage” (240 degrees F). Remove from heat, add 1 cup of pecan halves and stir until candy thickens. Using a spoon, drop the candies onto wax paper to cool.
Do you have a military connection?
I’m a former Air Force Captain, and my husband served in the Air Force for 28 years. Our son continued the family tradition when he was commissioned in the Air Force after graduating from college.
Delores’s most recent release is Cowboy Behind the Badge and you can check it out here.
Delores can be found at her website and Facebook, links below.
Thank you so much for joining us today, Delores, and supporting my efforts to send books to the military for the holidays.
