Fruity Cookies

Who else but the Keeler Elves would be thinking about Christmas in August? To heck with the heat, they say, it's time to start testing cookie recipes.

That's your cue to dig through recipe boxes and scour computer files. Call your mother and grandmother, sister and BFF. We want all kinds of cookie recipes: bars, drops or cutouts; with nuts and without; iced, plain and sprinkled; gingerbread, peppermint and chocolate. The elves really love chocolate.

We're not looking for original recipes, just your favorites.

The seventh annual Christmas cookie issue, which publishes Dec. 3 on and in the St. Petersburg Times, will include two dozen of the most enticing reader recipes, all tested in home kitchens. A color photograph will accompany each recipe.

E-mail as many recipes as you'd like by Sept. 19 to [email protected]. Put COOKIES in the subject line and include your name, city of residence and daytime phone number.
