Once we introduced the ninth annual VegNews Holiday Cookie Contest, we couldn’t wait to see what our readers would whip up. After receiving an amazing variety of mouthwatering cookie recipes, we had the robust process of narrowing the entries to simply 10 finalists. And after a number of days of rigorous cookie judging (and sugar comas), we offer you our three esteemed winners. Congratulations to all, and joyful baking!
