Calling all home bakers: Show us your cookies!
Every recipe has a story, especially the ones we make for the holidays.
For an upcoming statewide feature, we want to hear about and share your favorite holiday cookie recipes – from gingerbread and shortbread to sugar cookies and rugelach. Do you make Grandma's recipe each year or search out new cookies to bake? Do you make dozens to share with friends and family or just enough for Santa?
Stories, recipes and photos – both of your family baking cookies and the finished product – will be featured in a USA TODAY NETWORK NJ story publishing in December. Submissions, which must be received by Nov. 18, can be emailed to email@example.com with "holiday cookies" in the subject line.
We also are looking for cookie makers who are open to a visit from a photographer and/or videographer. If you are interested, please let us know in your email.
