Longing to live in a log cabin? The house plans on these pages put the next best thing at your fingertips. And a kitchen, not a contractor, is all you need to do the construction!
This miniature abode, created by the CW Test Kitchen staff, consists mostly of ready-made ingredients. It's so easy to put together that kids (or grandkids) will love to "hire on" as part of your holiday building crew.
So, if a real log cabin's not in your immediate future, why not put up this cozy replica this season? Then dream of log-cabin Christmases to come!
For an extra-special treat at Christmastime, I shape these little candies using homemade almond paste. The chocolate-coated logs have cute cherry and pecan decorations.—Margery Richmond, Fort Collins, Colorado
Our Test Kitchen has been up to some new tricks creating an eerie abode with cookie dough. Scaring up kids for a work crew will be easy. Just make sure your young ghosts and goblins don't devour all the sweet building materials.
