Friday is the last day to submit recipes for our eighth annual Christmas cookie issue. We have received quite a few but, as always, are hungry for more.
We are looking for all kinds of cookie 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, which publishes Dec. 2, will include two dozen of the most enticing reader recipes, all tested by the St. Petersburg Times.
Submit as many cookie recipes as you'd like by Friday 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 may 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. We know those splatters tell stories.
