The Prairie Flower Farm Christmas Cookie Cookbook Is HERE!



Hello Sweet Ladies!!!!!!!!!!!!

It seems like maybe my internet is working today. I am going to try to get this up as fast as I can! Smile! Tressa (my daughter) has helped me get the finishing touches on the Prairie Flower Farm Christmas Cookbook and it is ready to put up tonight. I can't take a chance for the internet to go off again. I am so excited about what you ladies provided to make a really special Cookie Cookbook. Call it a CHRISTmas Gift from Prairie Flower Farm! I really had a lot of fun doing the pages and getting it all set up for your Holiday Cooking. Thank you to all of you who contributed to make it all happen. I so appreciate you!




It all started when I entered my Homespun Snowman Cookie Recipe click on name, into a magazine called Create and Decorate. I came in second place.......... so I had to have a celebration party! Everyone who wanted to enter the Giveaway needed to leave a comment about what their favorite traditional cookie . Some also sent recipes for fudge........so appreciated by me! Love fudge!!!!!!! Ladies commented that they wished that they could have some of the recipes............that was when I got the idea to do Prairie Flower Farm Christmas Cookie Cookbook.

It was soooo much fun to put this together. We will be having a button along our sidebar, if you would like to put one on your blog. If you post about our cookbook please let me know so I can come and visit. I am really so excited about the recipes..........each one is wonderful and some wrote little memories of their families.

Just click on download or print.........very easy!




Don't forget.........one more day to sign up for the . Winter all Year Long Quilt Kit Kit click to come and sign up! It will close at 12:00 and I will let everyone know on Wednesday after we draw the name!

I blogged about it and also added your adorable button to my sidebar! I'm so proud of you! Please forgive me for not sending in a recipe....I really don't have any "awesome/good" ones but NOW I will! :0)

  11. Hi Linda!
    Wow, this CHRISTmas Cookie Cook Book is wonderful! I can hardly wait to make some of the cookies--as I was reading through it right now I wanted to jump up and make the Pumpkin Cookies with some leftover pumpkin puree I have in the refrigerator! (It's too late, I'll have to make them tomorrow!) I will be posting about your cookbook on my blog tomorrow. I just love it. I think I'll use some of your suggestions and fix copies of it up nicely to give as gifts. Thank you SO much for including my two favorite cookie recipes.
    May God Bless You! Hugs, Heidi

I am going to download, print, put in plastic sheet protectors as you suggested and give it my daughter for Christmas (maybe before Christmas).

  23. Oh Linda what a great job you and the all the girls did on the cookie cookbook. Thanks all so much the ginger cookie is just what I wanted for so long and the one with cornflakes, who knew there was such a thing , I can't wait to try those. All of them look so good but where do I start baking hmmm? Special thanks for your work you did it up so cute. FYI because of you and your blog I have reconnected with my sister. We hadn't spoken for many years. I called her one day after reading your in the blog. It was only a couple weeks ago. Since then we have had lunch one day and today we spent the whole day together . We were alone and each got our Christmas cards and address books. We sat at her diningroom table addressing our cards, drinking coffee and talking about funny Christmas memories. Neither of us are in good health so I am grateful we didn't wait till it was to late to reconnect.I'm sure we will be baking cookies together this holiday season as we both love baking so thanks for this cookbook and for just being you. You were my angel this Christmas. I am so happy to have my sister back in my life in time the holidays when so many years I felt alone and sad at Christmas. That is just a horrible feeling. God Bless you and yours this holiday season.

  24. Hi LInda! The cookbook is amazing. But I am so sad. :(( I do not know where all my e mails went that I sent you. I collected so many wonderful recipes and shared them and evidently none of them came your way. I really am sad but I am so happy that you put this together. I need to tell my friend she won't find her recipe here because none of them went through to you! That is so weird!
    But blessings to you and your family today and always. Anne

    Hi Linda ~ Went to Judy's site and left a comment ~ her soaps look amazing ~ Thyme Christmas and Christmas Tea would be my choices, but any are fine! Also, thanks for the cookbook which I downloaded. Many look familiar and similar to my recipes but will try a few new ones this year! Blessings on your day....
