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. And after a rigorous day of cookie judging (and sugar comas), we give you the esteemed winners. Congratulations to all, and happy baking!
