For over a decade, the Chicago Tribune has run its annual Holiday Cookie Contest, asking readers to submit recipes that are both unique and meaningful to them. Each recipe is accompanied by a brief description or story explaining why the cookie is special to the reader and their family. The Chicago Tribune then carefully considers these essays while choosing the finalists and ultimately publishing the winners in the paper.
Good Eating's Holiday Cookies is a comprehensive collection of the best holiday cookies as curated from over a decade's worth of reader submissions to the Chicago Tribune. It is an eclectic and delicious mix of recipes both traditional and modern, representing the diverse cultural makeup and skill sets of Chicago Tribune readers.
Complete with full-color photography and helpful baking tips, this book brings the friendly, distinctive tone of the Chicago Tribune home for the holidays. From cookie classics to twists on old standards, such as Tropical Nuevo Latino Cookies, Dorie's Dark and Stormies, and Grandma Grump's Peanut Butter Drizzles, Good Eating's Holiday Cookies provides any home baker with a plethora of possibilities for any holiday party.
