Miss Cogshell’s Recipe Box

Miss Cogshell has an important roll in Call Me Amy. When we first meet her, she’s an enormous, terrifying woman who the kids call Old Coot. Some say she’s a witch and her weathered gray house by the sea, with the creepy widow’s walk on top, certainly doesn’t look inviting. If Amy hadn’t found her courage to stop by Miss Cogshell’s house, so many events would never have come into play that summer. Or, should we go back even further? If Sally, the nosiest postmistress in Maine, hadn’t told Amy to stop in at Miss Cogshell’s…. But, enough about Sally (until she returns in Amy’s Choice). Let’s go back to Miss Cogshell who makes the BEST ginger cookies in the world. And guess what, Amy found her recipe, so here it is:


Watch for Amy’s Choice, the sequel to Call Me Amy, where you can revisit Port Wells and meet some fun new characters with their own tasty treats and traditions—available for preorder now!
