Holiday cookies in July?

It’s never too early to think about the holidays. The calendar may say July, but we’re already designing this year’s We Energies Cookie Book.

We just had our photo shoot for the 2016 edition, which will be released in November. Food stylist Jennifer Janz and food photographer Grace Natoli Sheldon worked with our design team to create mouth-watering images.

This year’s book is entitled “The Wisconsin Heritage Edition” and will feature recipes from some familiar faces. Former Olympian Bonnie Blair, comedian John McGivern and gardening guru Melinda Myers are among those whose recipes are included. The 2016 Cookie Book will feature more than 30 holiday cookie recipes.

The We Energies Cookie Book is a tradition that dates back more than 85 years. Company home economists put together the first edition as a goodwill gesture to customers.

Today, the tradition is still going strong with thousands of people lining up at Milwaukee’s Miller Park every year for a free copy of the book. Mark your calendars now – our signature events at Miller Park and Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton are on Saturday, Nov. 5. Distribution events will be held at several other locations throughout our service territory as well.

Be sure to visit our Cookie Book page for links to previous books, plus a video detailing the history of the book. We’ll post a copy of this year’s distribution schedule as soon as it’s finalized.
