|Milwaukee – On your marks, get set, bake! The holiday season officially begins Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 8 a.m. when the 2022 We Energies Cookie Book will be available online. |
Wisconsin is filled with amazing hometowns. They are the places where we grew up, live, work and play. This year’s Cookie Book celebrates hometowns by featuring recipes and stories that remind us why our communities are so special.
Over 300 submissions were narrowed down to 38 delicious recipes for this year’s book. From the traditional cutout cookies to the Spicy Mexican Chocolate Cookies — there is something for everyone in this book.
One of this year’s featured bakers, a grandmother from East Troy, shared how much she loves her community and the amenities it has to offer.
“We really enjoy being outdoors. We go paddleboarding, swimming, biking and hiking in the area,” Dorothy Bringe said.
Dorothy and her seven-year-old granddaughter, Lilly, created the Coconut Caramel Crunch cookie that is featured on page 27 of this year’s book. Dorothy is beyond proud of her granddaughter and their time spent baking together.
“Lilly is a big help in the kitchen. She and I both love toffee, caramel bits and coconut and wanted to create a unique recipe for the book.”
In addition to the online version, you can pick up your free copy Saturday, Nov. 5, at American Family Field in Milwaukee or Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton. The Cookie Book also will be available at distribution events across the state through November. Details on all of the events are available at we-energies.com/recipes.
Cookie Book by the numbers
This is the 94th anniversary of the first We Energies Cookie Book. The time-honored tradition began as a way to promote electric appliances in 1928. In 2021, we distributed books to over 215,000 customers.
