The 2023 VegNews Holiday Vegan Cookie Contest Winners

When we announced the 10th annual VegNews Holiday Cookie Contest, we couldn’t wait to see what our readers would whip up. After receiving an overwhelming number of mouthwatering cookie recipes, we had the tough task of narrowing the entries to just 10 finalists. And after several days of rigorous cookie judging (and sugar comas), we give you our three esteemed winners. Congratulations to all, and happy baking!
