Soon, Mary’s irresistible sugarplum pudding, sugarplum cookies
and sugarplum fudge began to warm the hearts of the valley people.
The people started leaving plates on their doorsteps in hopes
that Mary would leave treats for them. And then the elves started
leaving out their little plates, too. It seemed that the valley
people and the elves shared a love of Mary’s sugarplum treats,
and it wasn’t long before they all became friends. From this point
on, Mary was known as Sugarplum Mary.
As the years passed, Sugarplum Mary heard stories about other
elves who lived all around the world. She longed to see them and
to learn of their cultures… and especially their recipes. So,
she did. Sugarplum Mary learned to make all kinds of new candies,
cookies, pies and desserts. And, of course, she taught everyone
to make her famous sugarplum treats.
One day, like so many other elves around the world, Sugarplum
Mary heard the call put out by Shinny Upatree to come to the North
Pole to help Santa Claus. Off she went to the top of the world.
When she arrived, she found elves of every kind working as hard
as they could to create a toy workshop for Santa. It was almost
lunchtime, so she started her cooking coals and prepared a tasty
elfin buffet of sugarplum treats. The elves said it was the yummiest
lunch they had ever tasted, and, from then on, Sugarplum took
on the big job of feeding all the little elves in the North Pole
