Best Cookie of 2013 Contest - Brought to You by BRP Box Shop

And just when you thought all the fun and games were over (I'm referring to our recent Christmas Countdown Challenge), we've got another opportunity to win for you! 


Yes, you, our Cookie Connection members and cookie-loving public, will be selecting one cookie from this site as Best Cookie of 2013!




Finalist Selection: Finalists have already been selected from among a subset of Saturday Spotlights, including the first one on June 15, 2013 (when the site launched) through December 2013. Finalists include the top position (#1 only) in each Spotlight (or all ten positions if the Spotlight was a Best of Category type, like this one, where a #1 position was not clearly determined). Finalists exclude cookies that were already finalists or winners in another contest, such as Vintage Vacation or Christmas Countdown.


Grand-Prize Winner and Runner-Up Selection: As noted, Cookie Connection members will determine the one grand-prize winner from among these finalists. All you need to do is review the finalists listed below (click on any of the names to view a finalist's cookie in larger form) or in this clip set; then cast your one vote for the cookie that you think is best by clicking on the big pink link at the very bottom of this post. (Note: By best, we mean the cookie that ranks highest in your opinion on overall design and mastery of techniques used. This is not a popularity contest and repeat votes from the same user/IP address will be excluded as always!)


Nine other runners-up will also be determined by this vote and will be featured in the next Saturday Spotlight.


In the event of any ties, site admins and contest sponsors will break those ties.


Voting Period: From now (January 5) until January 11, 2014 (5 pm CT), at which time the winner will be announced.


What the Grand-Prize Winner Receives: Thanks to our very generous sponsor, Kip Simpson and his team at BRP Box Shop, the grand-prize winner will receive over $225 worth of cookie and sweets boxes (pictured below). That's 10 boxes each of 10 different, and very cool, box types! This winner will also earn the honor of Best Cookie of 2013 and the right to brandish a special badge on his/her site or blog! 


Cookie Box Prizes

Congrats to all of our deserving finalists and thanks again to BRP Box Shop for sponsoring this contest. I know it's going to be tough to choose just one cookie (they're all amazing), but give it your best shot. You cannot change your vote once it's cast, so please ponder all of the finalists carefully!

I wish I'd thought of doing that. I just kept a list of numbers, and kept going up and down the list eliminating. I guess it was KIND of like eney-meny-mine-mo. (

My judgment is based on the difficulty ... even though I liked the other ..... but when I see the incredible work and I can not understand how he managed to run right to vote ... is the toughest job ... !

I just voted! I am so impressed with all of the talent and creativity! All are winners in my book, and it was incredibly difficult to narrow down one cookie to vote for. Excellent cookies!
