Visions of Sugarplums: A Collection of Christmas Cookery is a delightful ebook published by Lizzie of A Dusty Frame, filled with those exceptional recipes of holidays past. My mouth waters as I examine the contents:

Gingerbread Waffles
Warm Cranberry Punch
Sweet Potato Casserole
Moravian Cookies
Toffee Squares
Epiphany Cake
Julgrot (Swedish Rice Pudding)
Triple Layer Brownies
Vintage Molasses Cake
The book is sprinkled with holiday traditions from around the world and their corresponding recipes, like finding the lucky single almond in the Julgrot. You’ll find inspirational quotes, a section on making homemade ornaments from kitchen ingredients, suggested family traditions, snow day ideas, and a list of favorite Christmas books. And, of course, lots of love.

Visions of Sugarplums is available for just $7 and is thoughtfully arranged with vintage illustrations—a lovely keepsake for yourself or a special gift for a friend

I received this e-book and immediatly started to look through it, I loved all the special christmas sayings which seperate each recipe so you know where one ends and the next starts and traditions mixed into the book. 

We tried a few of the recipes for our friends and family when we had a get together last weekend and all were a big hit.  The book has beverages, appetizers, breads, cookies, desserts, candies as well as miscellaneous which has a great dog treart recipe I am going to make for my puppy for in her christmas stocking from Santa Dog. Towards the end of the book there is a spot to write down your christmas traditions and also ideas on what to do on snow days.

Overall I have not seen a recipe e-book as full of great recipes for christmas as this one is and I am certainly going to keep it in a safe place to use for years to come.
