As cookie season warms up, we want recipes
The St. Petersburg Times food section seeks recipes for its ninth annual Christmas cookie issue, which will publish Dec. 1.
We want all kinds of recipes: bars, drops and cutouts, with nuts and without, iced, plain and sprinkled, gingerbread, peppermint and chocolate. If your cookie comes with a heartwarming story, send that along, too. The cookie issue will include two dozen of the most enticing reader recipes, all tested by the Times.
Submit as many recipes as you'd like by Sept. 17 to Christmas Cookies, Taste, St. Petersburg Times, P.O. Box 1121, St. Petersburg, FL 33731. Please include your name, city of residence and daytime phone number. Recipes also can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put COOKIES in the subject line.
Please don't send recipe cards; because of the volume of submissions we can't return them.
