I am so excited to make available the first ever Christmas Cookies Cookbook by The Birch Cottage. This cookbook is the result of the 1st Annual Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange.
1st Annual Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange
I had this idea that it would be so much fun to host a cookie exchange with the readers of The Birch Cottage blog. Only there really isn’t a convenient way for us to all get together and bake Christmas cookies.
So, then I thought “What about a virtual Christmas cookie exchange?” One where we would all share our favorite Christmas cookie recipe with one another. And then I could compile all those favorite recipes into a cookbook that you can download and print for free.
Plus, it seemed like the perfect way for me to give back to each of you. I really do appreciate every reader, subscriber, fellow blogger and friend who have so graciously shown their support of The Birch Cottage blog.
This blog quite simply would not be possible without the support of readers just like you. This is your cookbook. Consider it a gift from all the gracious readers, bloggers, family and friends of The Birch Cottage blog.
