Calling all home bakers: We’re searching for Los Angeles’ best holiday cookie recipes.

We all have pleasant memories tied to those seasonal treats, and we want the city’s amateur baking community to share with us that one recipe you (or your loved ones) dust off each year that’s the hit of the family gathering.

We’ll share your recipes — and the stories that make them special — with readers after the deadline for submissions, which is Oct. 27.
