Well, not really a smackdown, but we want you to bring your A-game to our holiday cookie contest. Your area's self-esteem hangs in the balance.
This year, we’re looking for holiday cookie recipes that are new twists on the classics — with, say, a secret ingredient or a technique for making the making of them easier.
Our new twist is, we’ll group recipes from each of four areas — the North, South, East and West — to taste-test in the PG Test Kitchen. We'll pick a winner from each area.
Each winning contestant will receive a new cookbook, along with bragging rights, here and in the PG's Thursday Food & Flavor section, where we’ll publish the best recipes.
or the old-school way to:
Food, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 34 Blvd of the Allies, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.
May the best holiday cookie bakers win!
