Cookie Bake-Off Bonanza Finalists
You sent us your recipes, we had a bake-off, and now the votes are in. Check out the 15 scrumptious semi-finalists, and the winner selected by Food Network's Alex Guarnaschelli!
Our judge was Alex Guarnaschelli, chef and host of the Food Network show, The Cooking Loft. She picked the Sumo Sweetie as our winner, saying that it had "great texture" and that the delicate almond flavor got a big taste boost from the "salt and fat from the sesame seeds." And the glaze has a secret ingredient (wasabi!) that gives the cookie its name. Congratulations to winner Stephanie!
