In the days leading up to Hanukkah and Christmas, we've featured the recipes of this year's Holiday Cookie Bake-Off winners: cherry-pistachio rugelach, snow cookies, lemony shortbread, rosemary apricot bars, almond sweeties and more.
More than 120 entries were submitted in the annual L.A. Times Holiday Cookie Bake-Off this year, and readers cast more than 2,500 votes to determine the top 50 cookies.
And in a final taste test, the top 10 winners were chosen and their recipes published in the L.A. Times' Saturday section.
The top 10 winners also came to downtown L.A. for a tour of the Test Kitchen and were photographed in our studio. Now meet some of the winners, who helped make the holidays that much more delicious.
