After hundreds of entries, 10 finalists, and delicious cookie sampling, we present our Holiday Cookie Contest winners.

When we announced the second 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 readers and hundreds of cookie entries, we had the tough task of narrowing down the entries to 10 finalists that we would sample.
