Welcome Paty Jager

Hello,
Today I’m sharing a caramel frosting recipe with you. My main character in my Shandra Higheagle Mystery series loves caramel. And who doesn’t! My grandmother always made this frosting for her applesauce cakes.




Caramel Frosting
¾ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
½ cup milk
2 TBLSP butter
3 cups powdered sugar

In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar, milk, and butter. Cook over moderate heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes, whisking constantly. Remove from the heat. Transfer to a large bowl; let stand for 1 hour or until the mixture cools to room temperature. With an electric mixer on medium, gradually add the powdered sugar, beating until the frosting is smooth and of spreading consistency. Use the frosting immediately. It sets up hard. Makes 1 ½ cups of frosting or enough to frost the top of a 13” x 9” x 2” cake.

The first book of my Shandra Higheagle Mystery series, Double Duplicity, is free.

Book one of the Shandra Higheagle Native American Mystery Series
Dreams…Visions…Murder

On the eve of the biggest art event at Huckleberry Mountain Resort, potter Shandra Higheagle finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. She’s ruled out as a suspect, but now it’s up to her to prove the friend she witnessed fleeing the scene was just as innocent. With help from her recently deceased Nez Perce grandmother, Shandra becomes more confused than ever but just as determined to discover the truth. While Shandra is hesitant to trust her dreams, Detective Ryan Greer believes in them and believes in her.

Can the pair uncover enough clues for Ryan to make an arrest before one of them becomes the next victim?
