If Charleston Were a Cookie, What Would It Be?

That’s the question that local restaurant, Circa 1886, is asking the public to submit. This is the last week to submit a cookie recipe and name that best represents the historic city of Charleston.

The winning entry will be served as the holiday cookie on the AAA Four Diamond, Mobil Four Star restaurant’s dessert menu served throughout December.

Patrons can submit their suggested ingredients and name for the Charleston cookie on the restaurant’s website until July 31. They can also submit a video with their suggestion tagged “CharlestonChristmasCookie” on YouTube. To view video of last year’s ice cream contest, visit the restaurant’s YouTube channel.

The winning cookie, as selected by restaurant chefs and guest judges, will be served as the holiday cookie this year at Circa 1886. The winner will receive a complimentary dinner for four at Circa 1886, excluding alcoholic beverages and gratuity, and of course, the claim to fame for creating Charleston’s Christmas cookie.

Last year, Circa ran a similar contest to create a Charleston ice cream. The winner was a seersucker ice cream, which contains Charleston Chew candy bar, blueberries, honey roasted peanuts and vanilla ice cream.

Here’s a video from the ice cream judging:
