Our 3rd annual Gluten-Free Cookie Swap was the most successful to date, generating nearly 100 (99 to be exact) new, tried and tested gluten-free cookie recipes in less than 40 days. Thousands of cookie fans flocked to the site to share, find and drool over tantalizing photos and recipes of everything from gluten-free pizzelles to spritz cookies, gingerbread to reindeer cookies, and nearly every kind of cookie in between!
The creation of this free album of hundreds of cookie recipes — open to anyone searching for a gluten-free cookie recipe — is something our gluten-free community should be very proud of. Home bakers, professional bakers and bloggers all contributed recipes to this collaborative cookie effort.
The three top prizes were drawn from the top 7 most popular recipes, as decided by the community at the conclusion of this year’s contest on December 31, 2012. Those recipes are listed below, and can be found (along with all the other recipes submitted) in the Photo Album of the Gluten-Free Cookie Swap on Facebook.
These finalists baked their cookies and sent them in for a blind taste-test by gluten-eating cookie lovers (*note: I did not vote). The results of the tasting, and therefore the results of our 2012 Gluten-Free Cookie Swap, are listed below.
Congratulations to the winners of the 3rd annual Gluten-Free Cookie Swap, and thank you to everyone who participated by sharing a recipe!
The 7 finalist cookies were judged individually by the 8 person panel on taste, texture, appearance and (lack of unpleasant) aftertaste. The cookies were all displayed on the same plates with only numbers identifying each plate.
Our big winners this year are:
3rd Place Prize Package:
2nd Place Prize Package:
Grand Prize Package:
The remaining finalists will receive more gifts from Jules Gluten Free, and of course, our community’s gratitude for participating and sharing such phenomenal recipes! Thanks to all our incredible sponsors and to everyone who helped to make this year’s Gluten-Free Cookie Swap such a wonderful success!
While the contest is over for 2012, the recipes from each year’s contest remain posted and available for your use at the Gluten-Free Cookie Swap. These recipes were meant to be shared by you, too! Please make recipes from the Swap and share them with friends and family to spread the gluten-free cookie love! Feel free to share or take a recipe anytime, and get your recipes ready for the 4th annual contest later this year!
Until then, happy cookie-ing!
