It's time for our annual holiday cookie contest. This year, we're asking for recipes in two delicious categories: sugar and spice. In the sugar category, we're looking not so much for cutout sugar cookies as we are for sweet creations that have something unique about them. In the spice category, we'd love some distinctive takes on seasonal spices like cardamom, allspice, cloves and, of course, ginger.
Send your favorite recipes to Kate Shatzkin, Food Editor, The Sun, 501 N. Calvert St., Baltimore, MD 21278, fax them to 410-783-2519 or e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Cookie Contest" in the subject line. The deadline is Nov. 9. Our picks for the best will be published in early December.
