First Annual EYB Holiday Cookie Contest

I love collecting cookie recipes – cherished family recipes and  newspaper contest compilations are my favorites. I’m always on the lookout for something new and exciting to try so every holiday season, I snatch up all the holiday baking magazines and make plans to make hundreds of cookies. 


This year, I thought it would be fun to share our original family recipes with each other. Here’s how we will do it: 

  • From now until December 1st share an original recipe for a holiday cookie or bar.
  • Email your recipes to In the subject line, write Cookie Contest. 
  • Be sure to include the cookie/bar name, oven temperature, baking time, ingredients and instructions.
  • If you have a photo, share that as well. 
  • Optional: If you would like to share a line or two about the recipe, please do so.

I will compile the recipes into one post so that all our members can try a few new recipes this year. I’ll have the compilation post up and ready by December 5th – in plenty of time for baking a new treat or two. (I may even have a prize to share for the most unique recipes.)

Please remember they must be adapted or original recipes, we cannot share recipes from published sources.
