2011 Holiday Cookie Contest

This year, we’re making our holiday cookie contest BIG—big batch, that is. For this challenge, we’re asking you to share recipes and photos of your big batch holiday cookies. If your recipe turns out six dozen cookies or more, we want to see how creative you can get with those cookies. Make us envy your neighbors, coworkers, your yoga instructor, and your kid’s teacher. Make us wish we were on your cookie swap list.

The contest runs until Thursday, December 29. Fine Cooking editors will pick their three favorites and the Grand, First, and Second prize winners will be announced on Friday, December 30.

See the Official Rules for prize details.
