Pictures and recipes: Baltimore Sun cookie contest 2010

In our annual call for cookie recipes, readers responded in force. From nearly 100 submissions, we culled the list to a more reasonable 25 for testing, looking for a balance of the tried and true with the new and unusual. After a frantic weekend in their kitchens, our test bakers convened, and after much discussion -- and many sips of water to cleanse the palate -- we managed to agree on a dozen winners. Whether you consider yourself a traditionalist or a trend-setter in the cookie department, you're sure to find some recipes here to add to your repertoire. -- Julie Rothman, Special to The Baltimore Sun Also see: • Cookie recipesPast years' favorite recipesBaltimore desserts100 things Baltimore foodies must tryBaltimore Holiday Guide 2010
