Announcing the 2011 Holiday Cookie Contest Winners

Thank you so much to all the dedicated cookie bakers who shared their cookie recipes in our 2011 Holiday Cookie Contest. Indeed, you made us wish we were the lucky friends and neighbors who got to sample the goodies on your cookie platters this year.

Congrats to our winners. (Drum roll for our countdown, please. . .) The cookies that took Third Prize, MyMansBelly’s Cinnamon Swirl Ice Cream Cookies, had us intrigued. Ice cream in a Christmas cookie? OK. We’re game. Kwilky’s Second Prize Lemon Shortbread with Pistachios, White Chocolate & Cranberries are a winning flavor combination and the cookies look festive to boot. Our Grand Prize goes to gcsu’s Cinnamon Bun Cookies because the minute we saw them, we knew it was Christmas morning in cookie form. Thank you, bakers!

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.
