The 2018 WE Energies Cookie Book is here. (1941 cover shown)

Where to get your 2018 WE Energies Cookie Book

For 90 years, WE Energies has published its annual Cookie Book and it has been one of my family's holiday traditions for nearly as long.

My grandfather worked for WE Energies for 40 years before retiring – and my own father closed out at 38 years strong. My grandmother, mother, aunts and cousins – we've all made these recipes over the years. I can't say we've been making the delicious recipes since 1928, when the book launched, but we have not let these cherished books go to waste.

Handed down through the years.

It was the start of the holiday season when you finally got your copy, even if we were a bit spoiled with early access to the books (thank you, Grandpa.) Starting this Saturday at Miller Park at the Tailgate Haus, you can get your own copy of this year's book. You can take photos with reindeer and enjoy some hot cocoa as well.

The full list of where you can pick up these sought-after books is here.

The 90th anniversary edition of the We Energies Cookie Book features 37 recipes from 1935 to 2014 submitted by those who used the book over the years. You can also access the full database of all of the delicious cookie history here.

Hopefully, you'll start your own tradition with the Cookie Book by getting a copy this year to make your holiday season a little brighter – and a little sweeter.

I will keep my current family tradition and bake up a few batches of this year's new recipes.

Happy early holidays, Milwaukee.
