12 Days Of Cookies Make Holidays Sweet

The holidays just got a whole lot sweeter

Who needs pipers piping and swans-a-swimming? When the holidays roll 'round, it's cookies that we're craving.

That's why we chose to celebrate the season with–drumroll, please–12 Days of Cookies. Throughout the month of December we'll share some of the most delicious cookie recipes to make your holidays a little bit sweeter, from cardamom macaroons to the lacy pecan Florentines with eggnog icing.

While all of Tasting Table's editions will take part in the festivities, links to each of the 12 recipes will be posted here for easy reference. We invite you to check back over the course of the month for newly posted recipes and to view our growing slideshow.
