Chocolate Raspberry Linzer Cookies, a favorite from last year's… (Betty Hallock / Los Angeles…)

The Third Annual Holiday Cookie Bake-Off is officially on! Over the past two years, you've submitted more than 550 recipes, and almost 90,000 votes were cast. Obviously, this is so much fun we had do it again. So, gentlemen (and ladies), start your mixers.

Entries for this year's Los Angeles Times Holiday Cookie Bake-Off are now being accepted on our Facebook page.

The process will be the same as the last two years. Post your recipe along with a short essay (a couple hundred words at most) explaining why this cookie is your family's favorite and a photo (if you have one). You, the readers, will vote online for your favorites. Then we'll test and taste the top 50 vote-getters at Le Cordon Bleu cooking school in Pasadena to come up with the 10 we like best.

The winners will come downtown for a tour of the Los Angeles Times Test Kitchen and will be photographed and featured in a Food section story during the holidays.

The deadline for entries is Nov. 3, and the voting will wrap up Nov. 12. So get your recipe in as soon as you can.

Want to get a little insight into what it takes to win? Check out the winners from our first and second competitions.

Good luck!
