The Christmas Cookie Tour of Inns Presents
A Very Vintage Christmas
Holmes County, Ohio – Recipes of Christmas past will spice up the 4th Annual Christmas
Cookie Tour of Inns during A Very Vintage Christmas event. The tour, hosted by the Amish
Country Lodging Council, will take place on Sunday and Monday, December 4 and 5, 2011, 1-6
p.m. each day.
Twelve of Amish Country’s finest inns and bed and breakfasts will prepare classic delights
from the recipe book Festive Favorites and serve them up with 1940’s flare. Festive Favorites,
a compilation of over 350 delectable cookie recipes, features classic treats bound by country
proverbs. Not only will you find cookie recipes dating back decades, but look up Mom’s Raisin
Drop Cookies and discover that “Life is just one dumb thing after another; Love is just two
dumb things after another.” A limited number of 1st edition copies of Festive Favorites will be
available for purchase during the 4th Annual Tour.
Each stop on the self-guided tour offers patrons a specialty cookie, inspirational décor, and
music. At select locations local businesses will present food demonstrations. Eat, tour, visit,
and recapture the joy of yesteryear.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for children. Group pricing is available. Each patron will
receive entrance to participating properties and a souvenir guide with the recipes of specialty
cookies available to sample at each inn. In the spirit of Christmas giving, all net proceeds will
be donated to Hospice of Holmes County and the Love Center Food Pantry.
Festivities will conclude with a drawing for a $150 gift certificate that can be used for lodging at
one of the participating inns.
Tickets will be available starting Oct. 1, 2011. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit
