2019 Naughty or Nice Cookie Challenge!

We're back! Back in the cookie groove.

The Naughty or Nice Cookie Challenge is back for a fourth year, when we ask for your naughtiest and nicest recipes at a chance to win cookie glory. (And some prize packages.) This year, the semifinalists won't be the only ones who could win something from Honest Weight Food Co-op, who is presenting this contest along with the Times Union.

It's Time to Vote for Your Favorites!

We have our finalists for our Naughty or Nice Cookie Challenge and now we're looking to YOU to vote for the top cookie in each category!

Two ways to vote:

1. Online, by "Liking" your favorites, at the link to the TU Facebook post, above. Facebook voting will end at noon on November 20th, when we'll tally the likes from each photo. Those count as votes that will go toward the final numbers.

2. In person at our People's Choice Tasting event at Honest Weight on Saturday, December 7th from 2-4pm! Honest Weight staff and member-owners will bake and present the samples, and there will be ballot slips for you to vote on what you think are the best-tasting recipes. You can pick one Naughty and one Nice cookie. Try all six cookies, vote for your two faves. Good deal, huh?

On Thursday, December 12th, we'll announce the winners! Two grand price winners, plus our Lovin' Local winner, will be announced in the Times Union and online! The winning cookies will be on sale at Honest Weight through the holidays.

Winners from each category will have their cookies baked and sold at the Albany co-op through the holiday season, as well as a $100 Honest Weight gift card and prize package.

Semifinalists in each category will receive a $25 gift card from Honest Weight
