From no-bake bites to berry-filled biscotti, hundreds of recipes were entered into the inaugural VegNews Holiday Cookie Contest. After much voting and deliberation, the VegNews staff narrowed down their favorites to the following 10 finalists. And this Friday, the VNHQ will turn into a cookie-making factory as we bake and test the final cookies to determine this year’s best of the best. Winners for our three coveted prizes (including a KitchenAid mixer) will be announced Monday, December 19, and congratulations to the bakers of these tasty sweets!
