Cookbook Review: Amish Friends Christmas Cookbook

23 Oct

New Christmas Recipes from the Heart of Amish Country

From New York Times bestselling author of Amish fiction comes Wanda E. Brunstetter’s Amish Friends Christmas Cookbook— revised and expanded for a new season of Christmas cooking. Packed with over 200 recipes and fascinating information from the heart of Amish country. Readers will find only the best of genuine Amish Christmas cooking in the pages of this keepsake book in categories of snacks, breads, gifts from the kitchen, salads and sides, main dishes, and sweets. As an added bonus, readers will enjoy featured insights into Amish life during Christmastime. Surrounded by a beautiful lay-flat binding, this cookbook is the perfect holiday gift for almost anybody.


My Impressions:

Looking for some yummy recipes to accompany your holiday celebrations? Then you are in luck! Wanda E. Brunstetter’s Amish Friends Christmas Cookbook is a great season specific cookbook for the winter holidays. With a wide variety of recipes featuring easy to find ingredients and clear instructions, you will find yourself reaching again and again for this book. Between each section, one page essays on Amish traditions give insights into the Plain communities’ take on the Christmas season. I made two of the recipes — Pumpkin Cheese Bread and Chicken Pockets — for a couple of church activities. They were a hit! A great addition to your cookbook library or as a gift, I recommend this cookbook.


Audience: adults.

    Okay I don’t think I’ve ever seen a review for a cookbook before, but I like what you did one! I’m not much of a whiz in the kitchen so I probably wouldn’t get a cookbook for me, but for those that do like to make some magic and try new recipes. Glad to know that this was a good one 🙂

      I have done a couple of cookbook reviews — fun way to try out new recipes.
