Meet the Author

Back in 1984, Vickie Hutchins and Jo Ann Martin, next-door neighbors raising their families in the little town of Delaware, Ohio, started Gooseberry Patch. They were two moms with small children looking for a way to do what they loved and stay home with the kids too. They shared a love of home cooking and making memories with family&friends. After many a conversation over the backyard fence, Gooseberry Patch was born.
They put together the first catalog&cookbooks at their kitchen tables and packed boxes from the basement, enlisting the help of loved ones wherever they could. From that little family, Gooseberry Patch has grown to include an amazing group of creative folks who love cooking, decorating and creating as much as Vicki and Jo Ann. Hard to believe it's been over 25 years since those kitchen-table days.
Today, Gooseberry Patch is best known for homestyle, family-friendly cookbooks. They love hand-picking the recipes and are tickled to share their inspiration, ideas and more with you. One thing's for sure, they couldn't have done it without their friends all across the country. Whether you've been along for the ride from the beginning or are just discovering Gooseberry Patch, welcome to the family!

Recipe

Low-Sugar Cut-Outs
Submitted by: Virgina Watson from Scranton, PA

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. powdered low-calorie sugar blend for baking
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla extract
4 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. baking powder
½ t. salt
Optional: colored sugar

With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter until creamy. Gradually add sugar blend, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well. Stir in vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture. Divide dough in half; pat each half into a circle and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill for one hour, until somewhat firm. Roll out 1/8-inch thick on a lightly floured surface, one-half of dough at a time. Cut out with cookie cutters; place on lightly greased baking sheets. Sprinkle lightly with colored sugar, if desired. Bake at 325 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly golden around edges. Cool slightly on baking sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 2-½ dozen.

    Cookie, Brownie, Bar and Candy Cookbook

    I got this cookbook on a special, so I was pleased to get it. Even more so when I saw that they had an interactive index in the front. This is a very thorough holiday Cookie cookbook with the additional surprise of many Candy recipes as well. There's 325 Pages on my Nook Tablet. Included are 36 Drop Cookies,...., with 32 Cut-Outs,...., plus 37 Bars,...., 36 categorized as Old Fashioned,......, 33 named Treats in a Twinkle,....., and 32 in the Chocolate Category. For some reason, the candy recipes are included in these sections. There are a few Fudge, Bark and Caramel recipes in this book. It even includes a recipe for Hot Cocoa, which I am sure is on the Hershey's can. We also get frostings. I did find some of the Hints very useful and good for wrapping up your holiday goodies. I know I'll use the one where you push a new Cookie Cutter into the cooling fudge and wrap it later as a full gift. There's also the hint to add a tablespoon of instant coffee to your cocoa to give it a richer taste. So I did find this cookbook worth five stars for the many varied recipes, some actually original, and the Holiday Hints.
