The Farm Chicks new Christmas book

Do you remember this book?

I did a post about it last week.  I had asked my mom to get it for me for Christmas and couldn't wait to see what was inside so I went to the book store and it was GONE!  Well, Serena Thompson is doing a book signing!!  You can be there in person or you can purchase a book this Friday November 5th and she will sign it.  She will be at Chaps in Spokane.  Even some of her friends that she often talks about will sign it.  *squeal*  Since I can't be there in person I will be there virtually.  I love it!  The book can be purchased at

Here is a very special recipe for you all to enjoy

Jane's Sugar Cookies

Cream together:
1 C. butter
2 C. sugar

(Correction, there are eggs in this recipe)
Add and bet well:
2 eggs

Stir in:
1 C. sour cream
2 tsp. vanilla

2 tsp. soda with enough flour to make a soft dough (about 5 to 5 1/2 cups)

Refrigerate dough.  Roll out dough and use cookie cutters.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Jane's Frosting:

1/2 C. soft butter
3 C. powdered sugar
3 Tbs. cream or milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Blend butter and sugar.  Add cream and vanilla.

A good recipe is like gold and I can tell you this is JUST like gold.  In fact, I just got the frosting recipe yesterday from my sister-in-law!  She happened to see it and wrote it down, wooohooo.  Thank you Melissa!!  We always fight over these at the table.  Jane (mother-in-law) keeps these jewels in the refrigerator and they are soooo refreshing when she takes them out! 

Blessings to you and thank you for stopping by!

I ordered the Christmas book a few weeks ago and it is fantastic. I couldn't put it down.

Thanks so much for this recipe. I am having a really hard time finding a recipe for sugar cookies as they are all so different! I will give this one a try.

I so wish I could get that book...I don't think they deliver to Australia sadly.

Best wishes,

Oooh! Can't wait to try your sugar cookies! Welcome to the party! Love, Serena & friends
