Cookie Contest with Ellen Stimson (An Old Fashioned Christmas)

Have a secret cookie recipe that is your holiday go-to favorite? Bring a plate of cookies to Bank Square Books for a chance to win our holiday cookie contest! Bank Square Books will host a cookie contest and cookie swap during the Mystic Stroll on Tuesday, December 1, featuring Vermont author Ellen Stimson (An Old-Fashioned Christmas).

Attendees can bring in a plate of freshly baked cookies, and Ellen will taste each and select her favorite cookie from the group. The winner will receive a complimentary copy of An Old-Fashioned Christmas, and after the event, contestants will draw names and swap plates of cookies.

Refreshments will be served, and Ellen will meet the public and sign copies of her book. Anyone is welcome to attend, not just those who are entering the cookie contest.

About Ellen Stimson

Ellen Stimson is the author of the best-selling memoir Mud Season and cooks and writes from a farmhouse in Vermont. In An Old-Fashioned Christmas, she shares recipes that have been in her family for generations, mixes up a cocktail or two, and invites readers to make their own traditions.

Anyone who loved Mud Season will remember Stimson’s hilarious and heartwarming stories of life in her small Vermont town—and An Old-Fashioned Christmas brings her trademark touch to holiday memories new and old. Readers will be inspired to begin their own family traditions like the Stimsons’ annual Christmas Adventure, the collection of nostalgic tree ornaments, and of course, the legendary Christmas party attended by friends and family from all over. This is a book you will return to year after year, and the 98 homey recipes in this book will soon become annual favorites.
