Karen Whitfield of Highland, Indiana submitted a recipe for "Bite-size Butter Lunchroom Cookies." If you went to a Chicago Public School you probably know all about "lunchroom cookies." They are legendary. Karen shares this delightful cookie with her friends, family and co-workers each holiday season.
Joy St. Pierre from Naperville submitted her recipe for "Allergy-free, Earth-friendly Pumpkin Spice Cookies." Joy started making these cookies about two years ago when her daughter was diagnosed with an allergy problem. These are a vegan treat free of the eight most common food allergens.
Our other top entry comes from Paul Habas from Crest Hill. It's a Kolaczki recipe. Paul's Mother taught him how to make these when he was a young boy. He has been making them every year in her memory since she passed away.
