The Cookie Book: Second Edition For 11 years Star Tribune has invited readers to share their favorite recipes for our annual holiday baking contest. Taste Editor Lee Svitak Dean and Rick Nelson have reviewed more than 2,000 recipes, selecting the very best to publish each year. The Cookie Book brings together the 52 winners from that decade of baking. From Cardamom Shortbread to Anise Pecan cookies, Swiss Chocolate Buttersweets and Pistachio Orange cookies, there's a recipe for any sweet tooth. Taste is the Star Tribune's James Beard Award-winning food section.
