Shadorma poem about Sugar Plums
Original Poetry by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

This poem was inspired by a lady I met at work who told me she was buying a special decorative box to place the homemade Sugar Plums in that she makes each Christmas for her husband.  Her description of them sounded so absolutely wonderful that I said I would love to know how to make them too!  She offered to email me the recipe!  So my grand-daughter and I shall try making them for Christmas whenever her recipe arrives, but in the meantime I created this poem and am posting some information I found online about Sugar Plums,
what they are, and how to make them.
I hope you enjoy!
