Do you think you make the best holiday cookies in town? Here's your chance to prove it.

Marcus Restaurants are collecting the public's best cookie recipes for their third annual Milwaukee's Favorite Cookie Contest.

The top recipe will be chosen by the restaurants' culinary experts, and the top baker will receive a special overnight stay and dinner for two at The Pfister, InterContinental Milwaukee or Hilton Milwaukee.

The Marcus culinary team will feature the cookie at Mason Street Grill, Kil@wat and Milwaukee ChopHouse through the month of January.

They will also use the winning recipe to bake 500 cookies for donation to Hope House, a local emergency and transitional living facility, Thursday, Dec. 22.

Interested bakers should submit their recipe online by Sunday, Dec. 18.
