There's no better way to welcome the holiday season than a fresh-baked batch of Christmas cookies, still warm from the oven. A new holiday cookbook, Christmas Cookie Jar, published by Gooseberry Patch, is brimming with mouthwatering recipes for baking up memories with family and friends - and features a recipe from Susan Siemsen of Saginaw. Her original recipe, Grandpa's Famous Caramels, is published in the cookbook.

From simply divine drop cookies to the best-ever bar cookies, this collection features plenty of old favorites from Grandma's recipe box and lots of new ones you'll love to try.

The 224-page hand-illustrated book also features festive cookie decorating ideas, hundreds of tips for baking and giving, plus recipes for festive drinks and frostings to top your sweet treats, too. There's even an entire chapter devoted to chocolate.

Gooseberry Patch, based in Delaware, Ohio, encourages customers to share their tried and true family recipes for possible publication in the company's new community-style cookbooks at www.gooseberrypatch.com . Each recipe has a special story to tell with ingredients and family memories. Those who submit recipes are located all cross the country and each has a heartwarming story to share.
