DMN Cookie Contest Winners

Every year the Dallas Morning News sponsors a cookie contest with all proceeds going to charity. There were some pretty good looking cookies this year. There's a great selection and variety because DMN gives the top three recipes in each category: Bar, Easy. Family Recipe, Decadent, and Decorated.

I liked the looks of:
  • Easy Lemon Mint Cookies (minus the mint)
  • Cranberry-Date Crumb Bars
  • Pryaniki Russian-style Cookies
Rose was intrigued by:
  • Chewy Angel Cookies
  • Caramel Cheesy Cookies (what a relief to see the "cheese" is cream cheese)
  • A Quiet Little Mexican Bar
  • Chocolate Candy Bar Cookies
I can see that she's her mother's daughter though. Two of the recipes call for beginning with a cake mix and she already was plotting how to get around that part with original ingredients. I don't know if that's possible in these recipes but it'll be interesting, and hopefully delicious, watching her try!
