Dear Sweet Ladies,

Today we drew our winner for the Create & Decorate Magazine and

Homemade Homespun Snowman Cookie Party!

We are so excited that

Tracy Suzanne


I was on Tracy's blog today to tell her she had won. She had me up on her side bar and had written about my party. I noticed that I had put the drawing for October 23rd. OOPS! I had two days in mind when I started the party.........the 20th and the 23rd. God used todays drawing to have Tracy win! It was a good mistake on my part!!!!!!! Sometimes the Lord allows our mistakes like this to happen...... so others can be blessed! Tracy's comment blessed me so much and her post also! It was a good thing for me to think it was today!

I am happy to say we are going to continue the party to make it fair for those of you who were looking forward to the October 23 drawing and maybe had not signed up yet.

I am saving all the names and entries from the beginning and will add any new entries from now on..... to the "bowl." I will draw another name on the

23rd of October at noon.

  7. My favorite cookie to make at Christmas time is sugar cookies and then decorating them

  8. My favorite cookie to make is snickerdoodles.

  9. I am sitting here eating snickerdoogles with fresh pear butter still warm from being in the cooker. Life has been hectic lately so I was in a rush when I posted before. I completely missed the part about sharing a recipe so her goes "Fudgie Scotch Squares" iand a half cups Graham cracker crumbs, 1 can sweetened condenced milk, 1 cup semie sweet chocolate morsels, 1 cup butter scotch morsels, and 1 cup coarsley chopped walnuts

    Mix all ingredients well then press into a greased 9x9 square pan. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes cool for 45 minutes before slicing, into 1 inch squares.

    My favorite cookie would have to be the sugar cookie.
    Love making them with my children.

  17. Hi Linda,
    My favorite cookie at am not sure because I love so many! My grandmother used to bake for 2 months before Christmas and fill nearly a hundred wax paper lined shoeboxes with cookies every year. Then we would go in and make up platters of cookies to give as gifts to family and friends. Most cookies were Norwegian but there were many others as well.

    But I think my favorite was a shortbread cookie with a blob of chocolate fudge and a blog of carmel and a nut on top. I am allergic to walnuts and pecans so she would put almonds on some so I could have them too. Oh they were YUMMY! I have tried to make them and they are never as good as hers.
    I usually make peppermint twists and peanut butter blossoms and sugar cookie cutouts and raspberry thumbprints. OH YUM!

  18. Thank you for the chance. I am a subscriber.
