Spritz aren't the only holiday cookies. We like to make room for Cappuccino Flats, Chai Crescents and Taffy Treats on our holiday cookie plates. These are among the sweets that readers submitted to the Taste section over the past 11 years during our holiday search for cookies. Five new 2013 cookie recipes have been added to the other winners and finalists. Find your favorites. Also available as an e-book.

I've never heard of holiday cookies. I've only heard of Christmas cookies. Don't forget the reason for the season. And oh by the way, it is not a 'holiday tree', it is a Christmas tree!!

stockminder, I'm sure you're aware that it was known as a yule tree before being known as a Christmas Tree.

And a coniferous (pine) tree was used as a celebration of the solstice prior to it being adopted by the Christians.

waco, thanks did not know that, but looking up in the Merriam Webster dictionary, it says it means 'the feast of the nativity of Christ'. So, essentially the same thing. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's to you and yours.

Why did it have to be meringue cookies that won - I hate meringue cookies. Stick to your teeth, have an unpleasant consistency, and are usually too sweet. Lemon meringue pie is a different story, partially because the meringue is not baked until dried out and also I add less sugar.

I purchased the Nook edition of the ebook and only received the sample copy, not the complete book. :( Buyer beware.

I've been happily paging through my Nook edition of the book since the night it was first offered, and got both the sample and full-edition without trouble. kwillett perhaps missed a step and needs to ask BN for some (readily available) help to download the full book as purchased. The photos are beautiful.
