Famous names in 2016 Cookie Book

Comedian John McGivern is never short on jokes. “I was the son of an Irish woman who boiled everything!” he likes to kid. But his mom made delicious sugar cookies, and they were the starting point for his “Jelly Sandwich Cookie” recipe in our 2016 We Energies Cookie Book.

McGivern turned to the pros at Milwaukee Area Technical College’s baking and pastry arts program to put a new twist on his mom’s recipe. “It’s a new version of anybody’s sugar cookie,” he said. “It’s a great sugar cookie!”

McGivern’s recipe is among 38 featured in this year’s Cookie Book, titled the “Wisconsin Heritage Edition.” From entertainers to educators to community leaders, customers will recognize many of the recipe contributors. From former Olympic speed skater Bonnie Blair’s “Killer Brownies” to Archbishop Jerome Listecki’s “Lemon Shortbread Cookies,” there’s a wide variety of sweet treats to please the palate.

The 2016 We Energies Cookie Book and a listing of more than two dozen distribution events can be found here.

We’re expecting thousands at our signature distribution events at Miller Park in Milwaukee and Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

The We Energies Cookie Book is a company tradition dating back more than 85 years. Older editions of the book have become collector’s items. Check out our archive of more than 50 editions on our website.
