If you make the same old cookies for Christmas every year, N&O food writer Andrea Weigl has got some recipe inspiration for you today -- provided with the help of N&O readers.
Head over HERE to see the six winning recipes in our inaugural holiday cookie contest.
The grand prize winner is a New Zealand Holly Cookie, a spiced sugar cookie sandwiched together with raspberry jam.
Other winners include: Sweet Carolina Biscotti, Andes Mint Cookie, Cream Wafers, World Peace Cookies and Buckeyes.
I don't know about you, but I've got a kitchen date with my daughter this weekend to try my hand at some of these.
