Lawyer moonlights as baker

LA PLATA, Md. (AP) - December 15, 2008

The Southern Maryland attorney bakes cookies using her great-grandmother's recipe.

Her hobby has turned into a thriving sideline, making cookies for special occasions. She's busy this time of year, baking sugar cookies in the shape of candy canes, Christmas stockings and snowflakes.

Barnes has also found love thanks to her baking. She says a friend became her boyfriend, after some cookies helped to break the ice.
