The Second Annual Cookie Wars Original Recipe Contest!


Today is the day. The day that the 2nd Annual Cookie Wars Recipe Contest launches! How freaking excited am I? SO EXCITED!

I have a love affair with cookies. Not just an “OMG I love cookies so much!” love affair. But I actually LOVE cookies. I mean, I am even kind of emotional about them (STOP JUDGING ME!). But cookies are the baked good that made me discover my true passion for baking. It was through creating cookie recipes that made me discover my creativity in the kitchen. Cookies are so versatile. The flavor combinations, the shapes, the frostings, the fillings, the textures. Seriously endless possibilities. That is why I started the campaign last year that “Cookies are the new cupcake!” And that led me to creating this contest!


So here we are again, already a year later. WHAT?! And This year is even better than last. I have 4 amazing and beautiful co-hosts, 25 unique new challenge ingredients, and some awesome prizes!

The basic rules are the same as last year: Create an original cookie recipe using at least two ingredients from the Challenge Ingredient list and submit it with a picture of the final product. And this year’s Challenge Ingredients are… (drum roll please!)

Challenge Ingredient List:

Blackberry Jam
Black Beans
Cocoa Nibs
