Delicious tradition returns: We Energies Cookie Book now available; get a look inside

MILWAUKEE -- The holiday season is getting underway and that means one of the most delicious tradition returns.

The 2016 We Energies Cookie Book is now available. It’s called the “Wisconsin Heritage Edition.” Customers can download the book and find a distribution schedule here.

The book is filled with 38 recipes from notable Wisconsinites, including former Olympic speed skater Bonnie Blair and comedian John McGivern.

The company’s distribution event is scheduled for Saturday, November 5th, at Miller Park where thousands are expected to turn out for a free copy of the book. Mrs. Claus and Santa’s reindeer again will be on hand, and cookies and hot cocoa will be handed out.

The We Energies Cookie Book dates back to 1928. Dozens of old editions can be found here.
