We Have a Christmas (Basket & Cookie) Winner!

Gift Idea #1 - Personal Gift Baskets and Boxes

Despite the weather, Saturday was a fun day! I saw a lot of smiling people humming along with the music. Several musicians shared their talents. Thanks!
Congratulations to Theresa Wheeler of Fairbury who won the gift basket full of The Country Cupboard special items.
The results from the “favorite Christmas cookie” vote was Sugar Cookies – by far! One person voted for Cranberry Hootycreeks. Since I never heard of that kind of cookie, I thought I was misreading the handwriting. But upon a search for a cookie recipe, I stumbled upon the recipe for them below. Try them and see what you think. I think they are yummy!


Back in Season! This is not just summer sausage. It’s better. Perfect with soup, crackers and cheese!
