I only know of a few:

- An Unthymely Death and Other Garden Mysteries by Susan WIttig Albert.   This one is on my keeper shelf!  The short stories are OK, but what really makes this book are the many tidbits, trivia and recipes that Susan throws in regarding various herbs.

- Agatha Christie collections.  She wrote a lot of short stories featuring Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot.

And there is also an anthology out there revolving around the theme of mothers written by some of today's more popular authors of cozies.  Darned if I can remember the title, though.

There's also Candy Cane Murder, which is Joanne Fluke, LAra Levine and one or two others

There's the Murder Most Cozy anthology series. (Barnes and Noble link): http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?z=y&EAN=9780451174833. There are several of them, including Murder at Teatime. I see them from time to time in used book stores.
