High Country author’s book gets honors

"Cookies in the Clouds," by Vera Dawson.

“Cookies in the Clouds,” a high-altitude baking book, is one of five finalists for Best General Non-Fiction Writing of 2015, an award bestowed by the Colorado Authors’ League. The book is authored by Vera Dawson, Vail Daily’s high-altitude baking columnist and culinary instructor. The hardback book, divided into three sections, features proven recipes with easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions, valuable tips for baking at high altitudes and recommendations about ingredients and equipment. Each recipe is accompanied by a color photograph. Dawson uses her experience as a teacher throughout the text, aiming to give the reader everything needed for successful baking in the High Country.

The book award finalists will introduce their works at Denver’s Tattered Cover Book Store on April 20 and will be recognized at a Colorado Authors’ League banquet in May.

“Cookies in the Clouds” can be purchased at, or ordered from, The Bookworm and Kitchen Collage in Edwards as well as at numerous additional book and kitchen stores in Colorado and New Mexico.
