We've never wanted the weekend to go by so quickly. Because, starting Monday, there will be cookies. And not just any cookies, but our co-founders Amanda Hesser's and Merrill Stubbs's holiday cookies handed out (for free!) all over NYC from The Food52 Holiday Cookie Truck, thanks to Nielsen-Massey Vanillas.
You might remember back in October when A&M asked for your help developing their recipes for a (mostly) friendly cookie showdown (here's a refresher, just in case). After lots of recipe testing and invented games of Cookie Tac Toe, two very good cookies emerged victorious: Amanda's Chewy Vanilla Spice Cookies with Chocolate Chunks (Vegan, too!) and Merrill's Soft Chocolate Almond Cherry Cookies.
And now, we're just 3 days away from Cookie Truck Week, when we're asking you to come eat free cookies and decide whether you're #TeamAmanda or #TeamMerrill. Who will take home the glory? Who will have all the cookie bragging rights? This is up to you.
From December 7th to 13th, The Food52 Holiday Cookie Truck, brought to you by Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, will be driving around New York City, doling out lots of cookies, good cheer, and cofounder rivalry. Keep an eye on our social channels (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and the cookie truck's page to find the truck—and the cookies.
Before we see which way the cookie crumbles, though, we thought we'd show you a little light trash talk we've been seeing in our company chat room (what do you think—should we disqualify her?). Things are about to get serious (and sugary):
