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

When we announced the third 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 countless mouthwatering cookie entries, we had the tough task of narrowing down the entries to six finalists that we would sample.
