Amish Friends Christmas Cookbook | Wanda Brunstetter


Today I’m reviewing the Amish Friends Christmas Cookbook — by Wanda E. Brunstetter.

Here is a brief synopsis:

The must-have cookbook of the season is Wanda E. Brunstetter’s Amish Friends Christmas Cookbook—a brand new collection of holiday recipes and insights into Christmas celebrations direct from Amish homes.

You’ll also enjoy the addition of scriptures and common Amish sayings.

Surrounded by a beautiful lay-flat binding, this cookbook is the perfect holiday gift for yourself and friends.



The Amish Friends Christmas Cookbook is exactly what I have been wanting for Christmas… and I wanted to share it with you now — so you have more than enough time to pick out your favorite recipes to make this month!

The cookbook is broken down into groups: snacks and bites, breads and rolls, gifts from the kitchen, salads, main dishes and sides, sweets and desserts.

It has a brief history of the Amish and Mennonites, then goes on to describe an Amish Christmas, the most important holiday celebrated by the Amish church groups that do celebrations – a few very strict Old Order groups do not celebrate Christmas.

Wanda writes about the typical Amish school Christmas programs, and family traditions, including music and decorations.

But the most important tradition among the Amish is the day after Christmas, referred to as Second Christmas. This is the day for families to be with friends and extended family, and gifts are often exchanged.

Another tradition is Old Christmas… but I won’t say anything else about it… you can read about it in Wanda’s cookbook.


And if you’re looking for a great Christmas gift for friends… pick up a copy of Amish Friends Christmas Cookbook, a sweet addition to any cook’s library — just in time for Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

God Bless You!
