'Tis the season to be baking and creating tasty treats. We want you to showcase your creations by creating your best batch of Christmas cookies - send us your recipe and take a picture for your chance to win $500.

Simply upload a picture of your cookies and submit your recipe below for your chance to win. We'll accept your submission through Christmas until December 26th. Then your pictures/recipes will be up for public voting through the New Year. The winner will be announced January 2nd, 2013.

And, although the voting portion of the contest will be up to everyone else, you are always welcome to deliver your baked cookies to the KIT studios at 4010 Summitview for a taste test that could be worth more money in your pocket.
