We had so much fun with our first holiday cookie contest last year that weve decided to do it again.
This time, were shaking things up. We realize people dont just bake cookies at the holidays; they also make brittles of all kinds, chocolate candies, buttermints and more. We wanted the contest to include those treats as well in our search of the best holiday treat recipes.
So here are this years categories:
• Decorated Cookies
• All Other Cookies (non-decorated)
• Chocolate Candies and Brittles
• All Other Candies and Brittles (non-chocolate)
The category winners will each receive a cookbook and the grand prize winner will receive a box full of kitchen gear, including cocktail and baking gadgets that you didnt even know you needed.
Put Holiday Treat Contest in the subject line and send those recipes to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail those recipes to News & Observer, attn: Andrea Weigl, 215 S. McDowell St., Raleigh, N.C. 27601. The deadline to receive entries is midnight Nov. 17.
Please indicate the category you are entering. Tell us your full name, age, where you live and please share a phone number in case we have questions about your recipe. Well publish the winning recipes Dec. 11.
