More than 225 cookies submitted in the L.A. Times Holiday Cookie Bake-off

Peace 
But where's your holiday cookie recipe?

You have until Nov. 15 to submit your favorite holiday cookie recipe to the first-ever L.A. Times Holiday Cookie Bake-Off. (Voting is already underway.) Winners will see their recipes printed in an upcoming L.A. Times Food section this holiday season.

So far, we have more than 225 cookie recipes submitted, including Tuesday's featured cookie: Amazing Sugar Cookies and Icing by Amanda Rettke of the blog I Am Baker. You can also follow her on Twitter @manda2177

Amanda says this recipe is special because:

"...it changed how I perceived myself in the kitchen. I am not a great cook and am still a beginning baker, but this recipe is one of those magical concoctions that can transform even the most horrific of wannabe chefs....every year we make these cookies and donate them to local law enforcement and church bakes sales, hoping that they will bring the same joy and delight to the receiver as they do the creator.

"I cant say we wouldn't find ways to enjoy our Holiday season without the recipe, but the insatiable joy it brings to everyone who sees and samples it is addictive to say the least!"

Thank you for sharing your recipe, Amanda.
