11 Dec

 

When we announced the Marcia Selden Ultimate Holiday Cookie contest and party we Marcia Selden Catering & Event Planningdidn’t realize how many amazing entries that we’d get! 16 amazing recipes were submitted and we wish that we could have had all of them compete, but we had to narrow down things to just six recipes for the judges at the Ultimate Holiday Cookie Party on 12/15.  So, we thought about flavor profiles, texture, and creativity and both of us created separate top 6 lists.  Oddly enough, we both had the same 5 cookies and decided on the last one together.  Here they are, with the People’s Choice winner mixed in, in no particular order:

  • Browned Butter Cookies by Evan Cassidy
  • Buckeyes by Lisa Eppley (recipe below) 
  • Chocolate Chestnut Cranberry Mocha Supremes by Ruth Kalla Ungerer (recipe below) 
  • Double Chocolate Raspberry Filled Cookies by Melanie Lowe (recipe below)
  • Kourambiethes by Joey Kuntz (recipe below)
  • Orange Cranberry Pistachio Cookies by Kim Butz (recipe below)
