VegNews Holiday Cookie Contest Winners!

After hundreds of entries, 10 finalists, and hours of baking, we present our Holiday Cookie Contest winners.

When we first announced the inaugural VegNews Holiday Cookie Contest, we had no idea what was in store. But after receiving an amazing response from VN readers and hundreds of cookie entries, we could hardly wait to start baking. So the VN team stocked up on flour, sugar, and margarine, rolled up our sleeves, and hit our kitchens to determine this year's best of the best vegan holiday cookie recipes. And after a rigorous day of cookie judging (and sugar comas), we give you the esteemed winners. Congratulations to all, and happy baking!
