Here we go again. It’s the time of year for our annual News & Observer holiday treat recipe contest.
Here are this year’s categories: Drop Cookies, All Other Cookies, Chocolate Candies and Brittles, and All Other Candies and Brittles (non-chocolate).
One note: if you are submitting a classic cookie in this contest, such as chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin, please tell us why this is the best version of that classic.
The category winners will each receive a cookbook, and the grand prize winner will receive a copy of Southern Living’s “Christmas All Through the South.”
Put “Holiday Treat Contest” in the subject line and send those recipes to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail them to News & Observer, attn: Andrea Weigl, 215 S. McDowell St., Raleigh, NC 27601. The deadline to receive your entries is midnight Nov. 9.
Please indicate the category you are entering. Tell us your full name, age, the town or city where you live and please share a phone number in case we have questions about your recipe.
We’ll publish the winning recipes Dec. 10. Good luck!
