You probably already know that Debbie Macomber is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. She has written over 100 novels including the very popular Cedar Cove series. The Cedar Cove T.V. series played on the Hallmark Channel earlier this fall. If you missed the Cedar Cove series this year, it will be back this coming year.
What did I think about Debbie Macomber’s Christmas Cookbook?
I prepared this Lemon Poppy Seed Cake and her Three Cheese Scalloped Potatoes. Both of these recipes were really delicious. Debbie’s Christmas cookbook categories include:
Merry Morning Breakfast
Christmas and Christmas Eve Dinner
Cooking with Grandma
Easy Family Dinners

Debbie Macomber gave me this Christmas Cookbook to give away, however, the opinions I am expressing are truly 100% my own.
In a large bowl use electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and blended.
Beat in the eggs one at a time.
Add in vanilla.
Alternate the flour and the sour cream into the butter and sugar mixture.
Beat until just blended. Do Not Over Mix.
Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Transfer to a wired rack and cook for 10 minutes.
In a small saucepan over low heat, warm juice and sugar until sugar dissolves into a syrup.
Invert cake onto wire rack. Using a toothpick, poke holes all over the cake: brush with some of the syrup. Set cake right side up, poke holes in top of cake and brush with remaining syrup. Cool completely on the rack.
