Love to bake and want to share your cookies with the world? Enter the second-annual VegNews Holiday Cookie Contest!

VegNews is thrilled to announce our second-annual Holiday Cookie Contest! Do you have a perfected vegan cookie recipe that puts the Sugar Plum fairies to shame? Whether it's your great-grandmother's gingerbread or a recipe inspired by whatever ingredients happen to be in your kitchen right this second, we're looking for the best holiday cookies on the planet. Bust out your best apron, biggest tub of vegan margarine, and favorite egg replacer, and show us how your holiday cookie crumbles. Dazzle VN editors with your sweet treats, and you might just win one of our three incredible prizes: a Vitamix blender, a dessert package from Sticky Fingers Bakery, or artisan chocolates from Allison's Gourmet!

Here's what you need to do: 

1. Send your favorite original vegan holiday cookie recipe to cookiecontest@vegnews.com by Saturday, December 8 @ 5pm PT. Have more than one favorite? Enter as many as you'd like! Please include title of recipe, the yield/ingredients/procedure, and a photo (if possible).

2. VegNews editors will choose 10 finalists and bake like crazy the week of December 10 to determine their favorite vegan holiday cookies.

3. The top three vegan holiday cookies will be announced Tuesday, December 18. Winners will be rewarded with incredible prizes (hello, Vitamix blender), and their recipes will be published on VegNews.com and showcased all over the web.

Here's to cookies that make the holidays even happier. Good luck!
