The Ultimate Holiday Cookie Bracket, Round 3: And then there were 8

Welcome to cookie madness! We’re down to the semifinals in the Billy Penn Ultimate Holiday Cookie Bracket. Competition has definitely heated up — there were almost 25 percent more votes cast in Round 2 than the initial round — and the tallies were close in nearly all categories.

Not too many upsets this time, as we have the No. 2 seed advancing in all categories, and two of our matchups pit the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds against one another, exactly like it’s supposed to go down. (Underdogs: You’ll get ‘em next year, just like Temple.)

Now there are only four choices left to make, and they are tough. Termini or Isgro’s? FedNuts or Famous 4th? Can’t decide? You could head out and do some tasting so you can make an informed decision. It might not yet be cold enough outside to hide under multiple layers of clothing, but it’s December, so it’s officially ok to indulge in a few extra treats. Or just call on your sweetest, sugar-filled memories, and cast votes for your faves right now.
