The wonderfully talented Angela Felsted over at ( is releasing her first novel called Chaste very soon and to celebrate this awesome achievement, I will be posting one of my cookie recipes, as the leading character Quinn just so happens to be a good cook.

Recipe for my mom’s awesome Coconut Cookies
 500 g Self-Raising flour
250 g Butter
5 ml Salt
5 ml Vanilla Essence
1 Cup of Sugar
1 Cup of Coconut
2 Eggs

Mix the softened butter and sugar until creamy. Then add the eggs, vanilla extract and salt. Combine well and then add the dry ingredients. Take a teaspoon and drop the batter unto the baking sheet, as this dough is not the rolling out kind. Then bake the cookies in a 180°C oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the bottom of the cookies are golden brown.

Tip: If you don’t have self-raising flour, you can use normal flour and just at 10 ml bicarbonate of soda to the egg mixture.

So, for the curious minds that are wondering what Chaste is about, here you go…

When he steps into his physics class on the first day of senior year, Quinn Walker is too exhausted from staying up all night with his three-month-old nephew to deal with moral dilemmas. As a devout Mormon who has vowed to wait until marriage for sex, the last thing he needs is a very hot and very sexy Katarina Jackson as his physics partner. Regrettably, he has no choice.

Kat feels invisible in her mansion of a home six months after losing her older brother in a fatal car crash and will do anything to get her parents’ attention. Since her pastor father has no love for Quinn’s “fake” religion and her ex-boyfriend refuses to leave her alone, she makes an impulsive bet with her friends to seduce her holier-than-thou lab partner by Christmas.
