Which comes first, the feeling that the holiday season has finally arrived, or the Post-Dispatch’s annual cookie contest?
Chickens and eggs agree: You can’t have one without the other.
Every year, we ask you, the readers, to submit your favorite cookie recipe, and every year you respond with cookie recipes that are fun, frilly, fabulous — and fattening.
But that only adds to the fun. We’re talking about holiday cookies here. Fattening is kind of the point.
The winners will be determined by the staff of Post-Dispatch food writers, with People’s Choice Awards voted on by the readers; prizes will be given to the top three finishers.
All entries must be received by Wednesday, Nov. 17. Voting by readers will run from Nov. 18-23. Winners will be announced in our cookie issue of Let’s Eat on Dec. 1.
