Get the butter out and turn on the oven. The Lake Sun is calling for the best holiday cookie recipe.

Each year, the Lake Sun holds a cookie contest and awards first through third place to those who have shared their secrete family recipes. It’s an annual tradition for Lake Sun staff who taste test dozens of cookies to find the best ones.

The competition is fierce with dozens of cookies to choose from. Choices ranging from traditional sugar cookies, to no-bake, iced, filled and of course the ever popular Chocolate Chip, makes it is a difficult selection process.

Contestants should bring a dozen cookies in non-returnable container with the recipe, name, address and phone number attached to the bottom.

Bring entries to the Lake Sun office at 918 N. Business Route 5 in Camdenton before 10 a.m. Thursday, December 17. Winners will be announced and recipes will be revealed in the Dec. 18 edition of the Lake Sun.

Remaining cookies will be donated to a lake area benevolent organization.

Grocery gift cards for first place, $75; second, $50 and third, $25 will be awarded.
