The 12 Days of Cookies Contest!

This December, we’re revisiting a popular (and award winning) event at AVRL: The 12 Days of Cookies! From 2011 to 2017, AVRL staff baked and shared cookies with library visitors across the Annapolis Valley for 12 delicious days over the holiday season. Each recipe was a family favourite or a recipe from a cookbook found in the AVRL catalogue. While we are not able to share cookies the same way this year, we can still share the classic recipes for you to try at home!
Over the next few weeks (beginning tomorrow), we’ll be posting the all-time greatest cookie hits right here on our blog. We hope that you find a new favourite!

This brings us to the next part:

The AVRL Best of 12 Days of Cookies Contest!

Send us your fave holiday cookie recipe (bonus points for pics). We'll pick some entries to feature on our blog and one lucky winner will be chosen at random to take home a copy of Taste of Home Cookies.

Send in your recipes, any helpful tips from your test kitchen, and pics to
Contest starts December 1st and ends on December 18!
