Where Treetops Glisten Release Week Giveaway – Book & Apron!

WTG apron book pinThe crunch of newly fallen snow, the weight of wartime

Three siblings forge new paths and find love in three stories, filled with the wonder of Christmas.

This week I’m celebrating the Tuesday release of Where Treetops Glisten, a WWII Christmas novella collection I wrote with Tricia Goyer and Cara Putman – from WaterBrook Press. To celebrate, I’m giving away a copy of the book PLUS this darling Where Treetops Glisten vintage apron handmade by my author friend Marci Seither! The model is her lovely daughter, Amy.

More about Where Treetops Glisten

Turn back the clock to a different time and listen to Bing Crosby sing of sleigh bells in the snow, as the realities of America’s involvement in the Second World War change the lives of the Turner family in Lafayette, Indiana.

In White Christmas by Cara Putman, Abigail Turner is holding down the Home Front as a college student and a part-time employee at a one-of-a-kind candy shop. Loss of a beau to the war has Abigail skittish about romantic entanglements—until a hard-working young man with a serious problem needs her help.

Abigail’s brother Pete is a fighter pilot hero returned from the European Theater in Sarah Sundin’s I’ll Be Home for Christmas, trying to recapture the hope and peace his time at war has eroded. But when he encounters a precocious little girl in need of Pete’s friendship, can he convince her widowed mother that he’s no longer the bully she once knew?

In Tricia Goyer’s Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Meredith Turner, “Merry” to those who know her best, is using her skills as a combat nurse on the frontline in the Netherlands. Halfway around the world from home, Merry never expects to face her deepest betrayal head on, but that’s precisely what God has in mind to redeem her broken heart.

WTG apron AmyThe Turner family believes in God’s providence during such a tumultuous time. Can they absorb the miracle of Christ’s birth and God’s plan for a future?

    My favorite Christmas goodie is my Grandmother’s recipe for yogurt bread. I make it every year and we have it for Christmas morning breakfast (with bacon and other goodies…it’s Christmas, right?!). I’ve never tasted anything like it.
    What a precious model and a lovely apron! Thank you for the chance to win!
    Blessings!

      Kelly, yogurt bread sounds good. Would you share your recipe with me?

      I would love to win this book. I was born during World WarII and every book I have read recently have given me much pleasure.

  2. Sue

    When I was a little girl, one of my aunts would make rosettes for family Christmas gatherings, and I always loved this crisp Scandinavian treat. In the early years of our marriage, my husband found some rosette irons and researched a recipe, and he has been making rosettes for our family and friends for years. They have become everyone’s holiday favorite!

  3. Sylvia M.

    Last year I found a recipe for Williamsburg Gingerbread Cookies. I made gingerbread men for the first time and they were very good. Hot Russian tea went just perfect with them. I’ll probably make them again this year, but cut way back on the amount. I had way more than we could eat!

    I’m so looking forward to reading this book! I love Christmas and the writing of all three of you.

    Sarah, I pre-ordered In Perfect Time, but made the mistake of ordering it (and another book) with a book that won’t be out until December. They won’t ship any of them until December! I’m having to use my patience to wait until then to read your book.

    I love fruitcake! Some with icing(not frosting) and some without it.Dark fruitcake or light fruitcake.It brings back memories of having it only at Christmas time.At a time in our lives when we were not so well off,and cookies and such were not so plentiful either.I guess our mom knew it would last longer than cookies for her eight children.Our parents have passed on now,but the eight of us are still living.The oldest is 75, the youngest 55. Mom passed on her love of reading,to us.I think of her so much when I read a good book,and wish I could discuss it with her. God Bless.

    • Sarah Sundin

      My parents and my husband love fruitcake. Me…well, I like to think I’m generous by donating my share to those who appreciate it most.

  13. Lesa Ulm-Stevenson

    My great grandmother’s recipe for crinkle top cinnamon cookies. I bake extra for my dad of course since it was a favorite that she would bake and my son and I take some, along with other baked goodies, to the firemen/women and policemen/women Christmas Eve in our end of town.

  14. Arnise

    I make about 180 dozen cookies each Christmas for gifts and the chocolate chip and gingerbread cookies seem to disappear as fast as I make them, lol ! It seems I munch a lot as I bake ( plus my hubby and son are always around when they come out of the oven). a journey

  15. Gail Hollingsworth

    Oh my I’ve been salivating over this book ever since I first heard about it! Would love to win it and the apron is an added bonus! My favorite holiday treats are spritz cookies. I learned how to make these in my home economics class many, many years ago!

  16. Susan Snodgrass

    My favorite Christmas goodie is a pecan cookie I’ve been baking 25 years now and usually bake about 200 dozen each year.

  17. beth smith

    My favorite Christmas goodie is homemade salted caramels! I started making them three years ago and they quickly became a family favorite. But tradition wise it’s cheese squares, bread cut into squares and slathered in cheese and butter then baken. There are never left overs.

    Clumsilyfollowingtheson (at) gmail (dot) com

  18. Kendra Whittle

    What a darling apron! Every year I go CRAZY decorating hundreds of Christmas cookies for family and friends. I make chocolate crinkles, gingerbread, and my personal favorite – candy cane cookies made with crushed peppermint. This has put me in a festive mood!

    kwhittle(at)wgem(dot)com

  19. Patricia Conway

    I make a Christmas tree cake in the shape of a Christmas tree and decorate it in green icing with lots of Christmas hard candies as ornaments. I love the apron you feature. My Mom had a drawer full of aprons and she usually wore them when company came and she was cooking.

  20. Britney Adams

    Oh, I would love to add this adorable apron to my collection and this wonderful book to my keeper shelf! One of our favorite goodies is a coffee cake I make every year for breakfast on Christmas morning. I received the recipe from an Amish woman when we were guests on her farm in Pennsylvania.

    texaggs2000 at gmail dot com

  21. Larissa

    I love rosettes, they are sweet and fried til crisp – yum! They are made even more special to me as the recipe has been passed down from my Great-Grandmother who greatly loved her Swedish husband and made sure he had his favorite Swedish treats after he moved to the U.S.

  22. Heather

    I love any Christmas goodies with apple and cinnamon. Also, peppermint and caramel goodies are huge favorites. Thank you so much for the chance to win this book! It looks like a great read for the holiday season. The apron is really cute, too!

    professionalbookworm418 [at] gmail [dot] com

  23. Connie Brown

    My favorite Christmas goodie is Forgotten Cookies. They are a meringue cookie with chocolate chips that are put into a hot oven but it is turned off and the cookies cook and cool in the oven. I don’t make them anymore but they were my favorite. I definitely would love the book.

  24. Deanna S

Love each of the others that wrote the book with you Sarah.

  44. Lois Hudson

    How can one pick a favorite from all the wonderful Christmas goodies?
    All of the cookies and candies that have been mentioned, and perhaps one that has not: Gumdrop cookies with oatmeal, coconut, walnuts and gumdrops cut small – festive looking and great taste in spite of what you may think. My parents used to spread cookies on the top of the grand piano as they came off the pans.

    I love Christmas stories – both books and movies. I would love to win this book! hudson5107[at]att[dot]net.

  45. Robin Miller

    My favorite Christmas goodie are truffles and frosted gingerbread cookies!

  46. Allison K. Flexer

    Congrats on the release Sarah! The book looks fabulous. I love Marci’s aprons! As far as my favorite Christmas goodie, I’m more of a savory than a sweets person, so I love those ham and rolls basted with poppyseed/butter sauce. YUM! My email for the giveaway is allison [at] allisonflexer [dot] com.

  47. Darbi Harms

    We would make tons of different goodies, my favorite being chocolate covered coconut balls (think mounds, only better!) and our musical family would pick 4 or 5 friends and go Christmas caroling their houses. One year we even rented Dicken’s costumes. Fun times!!

    • Sarah Sundin

      I loved caroling! Our youth group used to go. We did much more laughing than singing, but it was delightful.

  48. Jan Hall

    Christmas is when I make a pecan pie or two. YUM

  49. Kim Campbell

    Every year at Christmas, my grandmother used to give us all a Lifesavers book, filled with 5 rolls of Lifesavers. I have’;t seen these in years and miss them!

  50. Bebra Washington

    I enjoy Fruit Cake and plum brandy cake

  51. Becky Griggs

    Hello, my favorite Christmas goody. Is the Martha Washington balls my Mama makes. They are so good! And she only makes them at Christmas.
    beckygriggs75@gmail.com

  52. Eileen

    Hi Sarah! Every year my husband makes yummy sausage balls at many requests from family. I think this tradition would be even more fabulous if he were to wear this adorable apron in this years batch;).

    • Sarah Sundin

      Oh. My. Goodness. If the contest were for funniest comment, you’d win by a landslide. I’d love to see Joe in that apron!!!

  53. Nancy M

    Several things. One of my favorites is Icebox Fruitcake. My mom makes it. It isn’t cooked. It isnt your everyday fruitcake. I also love date nut balls. It seems that is the only time I get them.

  54. Tina

    Homemade coconut bon bons. Better than Mounds! My Grandma always made them at Christmas. She would give all of us grandkids our own tin full of them. I would hide mine in the freezer and take one every now and then to make them last as long as possible. Now I love to make them and give them out as Christmas gifts. purplebugster[at]yahoo[dot]com

  55. Linda LANDRETH

    My favorite Christmas goodie is minced meat cookies. My father had a recipe he got from a major common that sold minced meat but eventually dropped that from their products. So yummy!

  56. Jennifer Essad

    my parents would bake all kinds of cookies, make fudge and peanut brittle and divinity and we would pull taffy for Christmas, dad would take plates to his co-workers and mom to friends around the neighborhood, in the 60’s we would have carolers every year and they would be offered some too! My favorites were nutmeg logs and peppermint divinity. I miss those days like you can’t believe. Thank you so very much for offering your fans a chance to participate in this awesome contest .

    Chocolate crinkle cookies and my mom’s homemade fudge.

  58. Wanda Gerke

    Limiting me to my one favorite Christmas goodie is a most difficult task.
    Every Christmas I say “this year I won’t bake so much.” When it comes time to do trays for neighbors, there are 8-10 different items. My personal favorite – which most people would never agree with – is homemade fruitcake. Love the Christmas memories of being at my grandmother’s house and eating fruitcake. I make one almost every year, but it will never taste as good as Mamaw Smith’s cake did.

  59. Donna B

    I bake a lot of cookies and make a lot of candy at Christmas but picking a favorite would be very hard. I do enjoy making Amish friendship bread in different flavors and combinations. d[dot]brookmyer[at]yahoo[dot]com

  60. Rebekah

    My favorite Christmas treat is my dad’s chili! It’s been a family tradition since I was a lil girl. I also loooove those candy cane cookies! Just found out about your books and am beyond excited to purchase them soon!

  61. Katelyn

    My mom usually made a bunch of goodies to take to my granny’s and grandmother’s. She made fudge, cookies, and my personal favorite, pecan tassies (I don’t know how to spell it). They were like mini pecan pies. SO GOOD!

    That adorable apron makes me think of my sis-in-law and her sweet little girls. She makes the best cookies at Christmas… all kinds and flavors. My favorite is a Java-chocolate that literally melts in your mouth. She loves Christian fiction as much as I do, so if I win this goes to her. Maybe she’ll make me an extra big cookie. 🙂

  67. Amy Bateman

    I love Christmas goodies of any kind. Fudge is a family tradition, as are homemade caramels and divinity. I usually add homemade oreos, orange-raisin bread, chocolate pizza, Christmas Eve pizza. We do a lot of eating around Christmas! thimbleluvr [at] hotmail [dot] com

    My favorite Christmas goodie is pizzelles, an Italian cookie made on a press. I started making them as a kid for the Christmas platters mom put together for neighbors and its been my job ever since. My favorite goodie-tradition is baking goodies with my mom and sister. Even though we are both grown and live 3+ hrs apart, we find a Saturday to get together and spend the entire day baking.

  77. Amy

    How can I choose just ONE goodie?? Hmm… chocolate covered cherries have always been a favorite! I have to get at least 2 or 3 boxes every Christmas (if not more!).
    I also love these Italian fig cookies we started making the last couple years. They have a filling made with figs, marmalade, chocolate, almonds, and spices and the filling is wrapped is a dough that’s similar to pie crust. They’re so good! 🙂

  82. Kate Hinke

    My grandma used to make the most incredible fudge & divinity candy–both just melted in your mouth! She would usually make them around Christmastime, which didn’t hold the greatest of memories for her personally, as she grew up on a farm in the Oklahoma Territory and they didn’t have much (especially with 9 children!). And she raised my mom mostly during the depression. So I think the candy making was really special for her, as they’d always managed to have those treats. She moved to heaven in 1994, at the age of 104. wordsong7[at]gmail[dot]com

    Love these stories!!! My favorite Christmas goodie is cornflake wreaths with cinnamon dot candies! Mom always let me stir the marshmallows/butter then when she’d plop them on the wax paper I’d be there to spread them into wreaths and put the red cin. dots on like ornaments on a tree!!! It is tough to make in S. FL because of the humidity but this year I am going to make a large wreath and cut it up so hopefully it will work well . . . we will eat just about anything though! ; ) chris_davebures@bellsouth.net Thanks for all the great stories in one book!!!

  89. Deolinda Bird

    Breakfast is Swedish rice pudding with frozen strawberries from summer. Sweet treats are magic bars, fudge and mint brownies. Dinner is a crab feed.

    I always had my four grand daughters help me make the Christmas cookies and candy. Now that they are grown they come over and do all of the cookie and candy making while I relax and have some great conversations with them. They said it’s a tradition they look forward to each year and makes me one happy grandma!

  93. Diana McCorkle

    My husband is a retired mail carrier. When he was working, one of his patrons gave him a box of goodies. I fell in love with one of the candies that was in the package and asked for the recipe. It came without a name, so they are affectionately referred to as “Mrs Johnston’s Candies” in our household. I’ve made them every year since. Yummo!!

    My favorite Christmas goodie is pumpkin muffins! LOVE the apron! pixiedustedhomeschool at yahoo dot com

  95. Karen Johnson

    Dark chocolate covered cherries with the clear filling, not the white filling. And the last couple years the Wal-Mart here has carried this kettle corn popcorn drizzled with dark chocolate. They only carry it around Christmas. I try to get a lot of bags to stock up so that we can enjoy at least into January, but they still do not last long in our house. And my husband does not like kettle corn, but he seems to really enjoy this….

  96. Jess White

    My favorite goody: Spitzbuben it’s a German cookie!

    Looking forward to the book.

    My favorite goody is sugar cookies. We make them together as a family. Even though my children are teens and twenties, it is their favorite thing to make! And they would love to have their mother wearing a beautiful apron while baking the cookies!

    I would love to win the book and apron. I am an avid Amish items collector~

  118. Renee Jackson

    My favorite goodie would have to be my dad’s homemade fudge. It was a recipe from Hershey’s cocoa! MMM…I would get up early the next morning and sneak a piece before the others were up! But more than this delicious candy is the memories of him making it; shaking the cocoa and sugar in a old pink Tupperware bowl and then the stirring of the mixture in the black iron skillet. Those were the days…

  119. Judy Gordon Morrow

    I love Christmas books, and this one looks delightful! (I skipped over the specifics, as I prefer to start a story knowing nothing about it. I’m weird that way. 🙂 ) Fun to know the wonderful authors! Marci’s darling apron is the perfect complement to this giveaway.
    The treat my sons always said they would give up a present for is the braided bread I serve warm on Christmas morning with honey butter: Makea Lapia, a Finnish sweet bread. (That’s the spelling I was given by my sister who passed on this recipe from a college friend.) In our family, Christmas morning wouldn’t be the same without this bread, and now my dear daughters-in-love are carrying on the tradition.
    So enjoyable to read about all these yummy recipes! I don’t know, Sarah, but I think you and Marci might need to consider compiling a Christmas cookbook. 🙂

    My favorite Christmas goodie are pinwheel cookies my mom makes. TY for the chance. God bless!

  121. Robin Bunting

  123. Fran Phillips

    My favorite Christmas treat is and always will be the bon-bons my Mother made every Christmas by mixing powdered sugar and pecans and a tiny bit of milk, rolling into balls and dipping in chocolate and then paraffin. She made beautiful aprons, too!

  124. Rhinda

    My favorite goodie is Peach Kuchen. It’s got a pastry crust then peaches covered with a mixture of eggs and cream, etc., then sprinkled with cinnamon and baked. It’s a German recipe that has been in our family forever! Yummy, but my mom doesn’t make it very often. I would love to win the book and apron. I’ve read lots of Tricia’s books and I’m sure you other two are just as good as she is. Have a good evening! 🙂

  125. Dawn L. Martinez

    I love all Christmas cookies! I enjoy making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies for my family. The book sounds very interesting. I enjoy reading Christmas stories that have three authors that write it. Unfortunately, I will have to wait to read it when one of the local libraries gets the book. I can’t afford to buy books anymore. Praying you have a very joyous Christmas with your family and friends!

  126. Fran Phillips

    My favorite Christmas treat is and always will be the bon-bons my Mother made every Christmas. She made beautiful aprons, too!

  127. Karen Irwin

    My favorite Christmas treat would be my Grandma Davidson’s Scottish Shortbread Cookies. She made them for all of us for years. Everyone would line up for them and heaven forbid if someone got one more than someone else. My Grandma is in heaven now and I make them. They are my most favorite treat at Christmas or anytime!!! <3

    Shirley Blanchard jcisforme@aol.com

  138. Beverly Lytle

    My favorite Christmas goodie would have to be cookies in general rather than one specific kind. They sre my favorite not necessarily for the taste, but rather for the memories we make each year in the process of baking them. My married daughters all converge on my kitchen, and we spend an entire day (or 2) baking recipe after recipe of Christmas cookies. We always start with everyone’s favorites, then move on to some new recipes as well as some fancier decorative types. At the end of our baking extravaganza, we divide our goodies to take home and share. We bake, we laugh, we reminisce, and sometimes we even shed a few tears over a particular memory–all the while, we are adding to that never-ending pool of memories to share at a later time.

    I remember my brother and I drinking botanicals out of our Santa mugs that we only used at Christmas.

  141. Keren H Lyles

    It would be amazing to be able to win the Book and pretty apron. I love baking too much that I’m always wearing one. And the stories sound exciting. My favorite Christmas goodie is when my Mom makes her homemade Chocolate Mexican drink or her Hot Avena Mexican drink with a piece of Homemade Pecan pie or Banana bread as we decorate the Christmas tree and house. Blessings to you all. kerenhlyles(at)yahoo(dot)com

  142. Jackie smith

    Christmas time is my favorite time of year, and love making peanut butter cookies with a choc kiss in the middle,,,eating them warm is so yummy!

  152. Jennifer Clark

    My favorite Christmas goodie is coconut cream pie! However, the big day to celebrate Christmas when 90% of my extended family is present is Christmas Eve. My favorite goodies are two of the chocolates Grandma makes. I love the marshmallows dipped in white chocolate and rolled in toasted coconut. I also love her peanut butter balls (Reese’s). And I can’t forget the yummy punch we’ve had every year for as long as I can remember.

    njclark8203 (at) aol (.) com

  153. Jennifer Hibdon

    My favorite goody to make is decorated cookies, sugar and gingerbread, made with my daughters and my friend’s family. My favorite family goody to eat is my grandmother’s recipe of date pudding with lots of fresh whipped cream.

  154. Jennifer Hibdon

    sorry, j4hibdon[at]yahoo[dot]com Thanx for the giveaway. Such a darling apron!

  158. Claudia Castenir

    My mother-in-law makes these wonderful Italian tarts she calls apastachotes. The filling is made from a variety of fruits that she cooks all weekend. She adds a piece of a cherry and one chocolate chip to each tart before adding the top crust. Mmmmm one of those with a cup of coffee, makes my mouth water thinking about it. I am glad to have the opportunity to enter your giveaway. I love to read, am in the mood for a Christmas story, and wear aprons to work in the kitchen daily. God bless. ( I know you asked for [at] rather than @, but each time I clicked on submit I got a message that I needed an @. Then it wouldn’t accept the [dot].)

  159. Pam Fitzgerald

    We call them Cream Cheese cookies, but the star of each bite is a maraschino cherry. Roll out the buttery dough and slice into 1/2″x2″ rectangles. Roll each rectangle around a cherry half. Bake; dust with powder sugar when cool. Such a pretty plate of red & white & golden crusts! They melt in your mouth. A unique cookie that reminds us, always, of Grandma’s kitchen.

  160. Joan Jones

    We are on a healthy eating plan now that we don’t eat sugar but we do eat lots of healthy desserts, so I can’t wait to see all the goodies we can remake this Christmas…chocolate covered pretzels have been a favorite
    psalm63@verizon.net

  161. Lindsay

    Super excited to read “Where Treetops Glisten”!! There are soo many things about Christmas that I love. One of the “must haves” though are Surprise Meringues. (Meringue cookies with chocolate chips inside.) They melt in your mouth and then there’s the gooey chocolate. It’s the only time of the year that they are made, thus why they are special. I can’t wait to finish our adoption process so I can start the tradition with my children, Lord willing.
    lspread[at]gmail[dot]com

  162. Gloria Schilling

    A favorite Christmas goodie was homemade caramels. Wrapping each piece in wax paper was a family affair! The candy was a speciality of Mom’s.

  163. Lesley Dubiel

    Oh, how I love Christmas! I don’t know if I can choose just one favorite goody as my kids and I make so many. I would have to say nut rolls. They are not my favorite goody to eat, however they are my favorite one to make as I always make these with my Mom. It is a precious time to spend with her and my kids.

    pjdubiel [at] windstream [dot] net

    God Bless!

  164. beth arndt

    We never really did holiday baking at home, but I love that my mother-in-law keeps fudge throughout her house so that it is always handy! Luckiebear[at]gmail[dot]com

  165. Donna EHD

    I guess my favorite Christmas goodie would be some good old fashion home-made fudge, and peanut butter fudge. Really, any good home-made cookie is welcome also. Of course, these don’t really have to be just at Christmas — I’d take them anytime. 🙂
    donna [dot] durnell [at] sbcglobal [dot] net

  169. Danielle

    Dutch babies for breakfast…with a splash of lemon juice, a hearty dash of melted butter poured along the crisp edges that run to the soft center of the “pancake”, a generous splash of maple syrup, and a pretty dusting of powdered sugar (served with sausage and a segmented grapefruit half topped with a cherry!)

  170. Donna Marie Rhyne

    I love Plum Pudding at Christmas time!

  171. Maryann

    My favorite christmas goodie is my aunts apple spice cake. Its a tradition in our family.

  172. Linda

    The sweet rolls made from frozen hot rolls covered in butter, brown sugar, cinnamon & nuts (and rise overnight) is a much anticipated Christmas morning treat.
    My 94 yr old mother-in-law would be the blessed recipient of this book should I win. She loves to read & especially enjoys WW II stories.

  180. Tara Kolker

    My favorite Christmas goodies are Greek cookies that we’ve made since before I can remember. My great grandpa came from Greece in the early 1900s, and I really love getting to incorporate a little bit of his culture into my Christmases and into my life in general!

  182. nat

    Homemade carmels…I could eat the whole pan! 😛

  183. Brittany

    One of my favorite( I can’t choose just one thing to be my favorite. ) is peppermint cake. It’s really easy to make too; you simply prepare a vanilla cake mix and add crushed peppermint candy (or even a drop of peppermint flavor) to the batter. Bake your cake, let it cool, Add white icing, and crush more peppermints on top. So good! This doesn’t have to be refrigerated, but there’s nothing like a cold slice of cake with a hot cup of coffee! Then snuggle down on the couch with a soft blanket and a sweet Christmas story……ah, paradise!

  188. Anne Rightler

    I really had a hard time thinking of a favorite treat but I think I like Russian tea cakes. I know the younger members of the family still like to make and eat cutout sugar cookies. Unfortunately I just eat too much of the Christmas treats so have cut back on how much I make. I have little self-control when it comes to sweets. 🙂
    I’m looking forward to reading your new book. Congrats on its release and here’s hoping to be a winner. (Love the aprons too!)

    My favorite Christmas cookie is sugar cookies. My Grandma always made them for me. I made them for Sunday School class years before I had kids. I made them every year with my two girls and had fun letting them decorate them. No I make them with my grandkids. They stand the generations

  190. June Shirey

    I love the Christmas tree. It reminds me of a big birthday cake for JESUS <3 After all that is the true meaning of Christmas.

  194. Jeri

    We made sugar cookies at Christmas with my mom. She would roll them out and we would cut them, then all of us kids would decorate them. Oh what fun we had!! My mom would then give them away as gifts along with her cinnamon rolls. We would make tons of them!!

  195. Lora Dietrich

    My family loves Chez mix that as way more spice than called for.

  196. Tracey Hagwood

    Cookies of every variety say Christmas to me. Magic bars are probably the family favorite. They are so indulgently rich I only make them in Dec. I enjoy Christmas books anytime really, so heartwarming.
    I would love to read your new book.

    My favorite Christmas cookie would have to be snickerdoodles, my favorite Christmas gift that I ever received was A Baby doll that smelled like strawberries from my parents when I was little & my husband who I married in 2006 on December 22

  199. Judith de Vries-Porteous

    I always make Butter tarts, whipped shortbread and nanaimo bars for Christmas treats! I also buy Dutch Christmas goodies to compliment mny baking. But my favourite is the whipped shortbread. It’s so easy to make and it melts in your mouth! My mom gave me the recipe many years ago!

  200. Sherri Roberts

    My Mother is a fantastic cook, & always made a lot of delicious foods during Christmas! Italian Cream cake, orange slice cake, fudge, fruit salad, fudge, etc., lots of good sweets. One year, when I was a teenager, I helped her make a candy called “Martha Washington Balls”, it was a recipe in the yellow telephone company cookbook. It was a time consuming recipe, but the candy was so good, it became a yearly treat! I love reading Christmas stories, and start around the end of October. Can’t wait to read “Where Treetops Glisten”, & would love to have one of the aprons!

  201. Barbara H.

    I’ve been looking forward to this book! Our favorite goodie we make in December is Harvest Loaf Cake. Even though its name is more fallish, we like it during Christmas time. It’s kind of like a pumpkin bread (only more cake-like, though it is made in a loaf pan) with a glaze that has several spices in it. I had it at a friend’s house, loved it, asked for the recipe, and now it is a family tradition. Another favorite is gingerbread teddy bears. They’re soft and chewy. It’s a little labor intensive because it involves rolling dough into balls and then placing them as the stomach, head, arms, and legs for each bear, but they’re so good…and cute!

    On Christmas I’d have to say pumpkin pie, but leading up to Christmas I’ll go with fudge. And now I want to make both thank you very much. I better wait another month or two. Your book looks fantastic, I can’t wait to read it.

    I love the Christmas holidays because of the sweet, warm memories of something baking in the oven, or cooling on the kitchen counters as soon as I walked in from school as a little girl. We baked all kinds of cookies & gift wrapped many bags to give away! I still do the same today! Everyone loves homemade goodies!

    It’s hard to say what my favorite Christmas goodie would be….

Thank you for writing great books that anyone can read!

    I’ve enjoyed reading through the comments. Sounds like the makings for a Christmas Cookbook. My favorite Christmas goody is my grandmother’s date roll. It is a cake-type recipe that is made in a cylinder shape. Then, it is sliced and served with a warm butter sauce. So delicious and a wonderful family tradition. Thanks for offering a chance to win your Christmas book along with the darling apron.

    Love the WWII stories. My favorite Christmas treats are two different cookies – my great aunt’s sugar cookie recipe and a recipe for cherry wink cereal cookies that was passed down in an old church recipe book.

    I will have to go with the fruitcake lovers. It seems you can only get a fruitcake during the holiday season, and only for a limited time. My daughter also loves them, and we tell ourselves every year that we will have to order one, but it seems we always miss the deadline or don’t have the funds when it is time to order. I wish they were easier to make. Please enter me in the drawing lisajcowell (at) cs (dot) com

    My favorite Christmas goodie is pecan pie! I would be so blessed to win your book and apron. Thank you for this opportunity.

    I love Christmas!! I think my favorite goodie would be simple sugar cookies – for the simple reason that they are one of the only sweets my daughter will eat. She has learned to make them from scratch and it is fun to make them together . If I win the apron I’m giving it to her 🙂

    My favorite Christmas goodie is homemade caramels. They are fun to make, and full of yummy chewy goodness. 🙂

    I would love to win this! My favorite Christmas goodie is my mom’s homemade nut horns! There is nothing better!

    My favorite Christmas goodie was always Grammy Lila’s squash donuts! Sadly, she had no recipe, so none of us have been able to re-create them. I do love using Mom’s recipe to make fudge though. 😉

    Pretty much any homemade candy as long as it doesn’t have peanut butter or ‘jelly’ in it. Also favorite dessert is Pecan Pie.
