Cooking Channel is joining Food Network for our first annual cookie swap, 12 Days of Cookies. Each day, visit us here for a look at new holiday cookies, party-planning tips and top techniques for rolling, spooning, slicing, baking and decorating delicious sweet treats to give — or keep — from favorite chefs and Food People. Then visit FoodNetwork.com/12daysofcookies for great takes on holiday baking from Food Network chefs — cookies by the dozen to celebrate all season.
Jamie Oliver eats these Almond and Pine Nut Cookies warm from the oven. Essentially a pumped up oatmeal cookie with nuts galore, these simple, hearty and just-sweet-enough treats are a good, honest addition to the more specialized fare that’s probably coming out of your oven this month.
Bake up a batch and fill your kitchen with the familiar flavors of the season: toasted nuts, sugary oatmeal, melting butter.
