Where to get your 2017 WE Energies Cookie Book
For nearly 90 years, WE Energies has published its annual Cookie Book and it has been one of my family's holiday traditions for nearly as long.
My grandfather worked for WE Energies for 40 years before retiring – and my father is closing in on his own 40 with the utility, at 37 years strong. My grandmother, mother, aunts and cousins – we've all made these recipes over the years. I can't say we've been making the delicious recipes since 1928, when the book launched, but we have not put these cherished books to waste.
It was the start of the holiday season when you finally got your copy, even if we were a bit spoiled with early access to the books (thank you, Grandpa.) Starting this Saturday at Miller Park, you can get your own copy of this year's book. You can take photos with reindeer and enjoy some hot cocoa as well.
The full list of where you can pick up these sought-after books is here.
The 2017 edition focuses on Wisconsin Products such as honey, cranberries, cherries, pumpkin, cheese, and of course, milk and butter. The book features 31 recipes provided by bakers, beekeepers, farmers and more.
Hopefully, you'll start your own tradition with the Cookie Book by getting a copy this year to make your holiday season a little brighter – and a little sweeter.
I will keep my current family tradition and bake up a few batches of this year's new recipes.
Happy early holidays, Milwaukee.
