An updated and expanded edition of the bestselling Holiday Cookies, featuring additional recipes from the last decade of contest winners.

For nearly four decades, 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's award-winning food writers and editors carefully consider these essays, select the finalists, and then publish winning recipes.

Holiday Cookies, 2nd Edition is an updated and expanded collection of the best holiday cookies as curated from nearly four decades worth of reader submissions, including 28 new recipes from the winners in 2014 to 2022. These delicious recipes represent an eclectic mix of traditional and modern recipes from diverse cultural backgrounds and skill levels, such as Tropical Nuevo Latino Cookies, Dorie's Dark and Stormies, and Grandma Grump's Peanut Butter Drizzles.

Complete with full-color photography and helpful baking tips, this gorgeous compilation brings the warmth and expertise of a cross-generational baking community home for the holidays. From cookie classics to twists on old standards, Holiday Cookies provides the home baker with a plethora of possibilities for any holiday party.
