We asked everyone to show us your best holiday cookie photos and you all definitely delivered! We received 160+ entries — from shots of classic sugar cookies and gingerbread men to more decadent Nutella chocolate cookies to Ischler Toertchen, a chocolate-covered jam-filled cookie from Austria. Alas, we couldn’t actually sample them all, but we did get to feast our eyes on all the baked goodies.
You also shared your cookie photos with friends, and everyone voted for their favorites to come up with our top cookies. And the winners are…
$300 First Place Prize: Tonya’s “Snow Penguins!”
$200 Second Place Prize: Danielle Cirillo’s “My precious Thanksgiving cookies”
$100 Third Place Prize: Crent2012′s Christmas Santa
There were so many really stellar looking holiday cookies shared that if it were up to us, you’d all be winners! We at Food.com had a few more favorites we saw in the mix that we just wanted to give a shout-out to — these folks really know how to make a cookie look almost too good to eat!
