Heath Bar Cookies Recipe

Hello all! As you may or may not know, I am the author of a series of romantic adventure books that take place in Baldwin, Michigan. I love the town, and have since I was a child spending summers there with the family.

One of their local churches put together a self-published edition of recipes. I thought you might be interested in the delicious dishes they’ve shared.


Once a week I will post a recipe from the book, and I do hope that you will try them!

One more piece of housekeeping before the deliciousness starts!

We would like to thank all of the members of our church Women’s Fellowship for their time and effort in compiling our “Coffee Hour Cookbook,” especially Mary Carlson for typing the recipes. Last year, we celebrated our church’s 125th anniversary and we have included some of the history compiled by Mary’s daughter, Susan Bradford Tripp, with information obtained from the history book compiled by Robert and Ruth Leeson. It was under the tenure of Rev. David Debbink that Phyllis Bromley (long time member) organized our weekly coffee hours following Sunday morning worship services For at least 30 years we have been collecting recipes from those who served, and, as you can see, many of these good cooks are now angels in God’s kitchen, preparing the goodies there. We are very grateful to have their recipes to treasure and remember them by. May they inspire new cooks to carry on the tradition of the coffee hour following worship service, where people find the warmth of our Christian fellowship.
