FOOD HDY-HOLIDAYCOOKIES 2 LA

This year’s holiday cookie contest has four categories. The deadline to enter is midnight Nov. 17. Winning recipes will be published Dec. 11.

GLENN KOENIG — MCT

We had so much fun with our first holiday cookie contest last year that we’ve decided to do it again.

This time, we’re shaking things up. We realize people don’t 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 year’s 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 didn’t even know you needed.

Put “Holiday Treat Contest” in the subject line and send those recipes to aweigl@newsobserver.com 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. We’ll publish the winning recipes Dec. 11.

Good luck.
