2017 VegNews Holiday Cookie Contest Winners!

After countless entries, 10 finalists, and delicious cookie sampling, we present this year’s Holiday Cookie Contest winners.

When we announced the fourth annual VegNews Holiday Cookie Contest, we couldn’t wait to see what our creative readers would whip up. After receiving an amazing response from VN followers and a slew of mouthwatering cookie entries, we had the tough task of narrowing the entries to 10 finalists that we would sample.
