Cookie Cookbooks

We're givng away a collection of the season's best cookie cookbooks, plus everyone can try a few sample recipes.

The best part about the holiday season is cookies, cookies and more cookies! And when it comes to recipes, I never get tired of searching for the next super-star new cookie to grace this year’s holiday cookie plate. Of course, we’ve collected some amazing new recipes (and made-over old faves) for Cooking Channel’s all-star cookie swap, but I’ve also had my eye on a few of the new cookie cookbooks out there. Here are some new ones, plus sample recipes to get you baking.

Cookies for Kids’ Cancer: Best Bake Sale Cookbook, by Gretchen Holt-Witt
Pediatric cancer claims more lives than any other childhood disease in the U.S. When Gretchen Holt-Witt’s 2 1/2-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer in 2007 she became a mom on a mission, setting out to raise funds for cancer research by baking cookies — she baked 96,000 cookies and raised more than $420,000 her first year. Inspired by the success, she started Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a non-profit that encourages people around the country to host their own bake sales. Now you can contribute to the cause by buying this cookbook; all proceeds go directly to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.

    You know you can't go wrong with a good chocolate chip cookie no matter what holiday it is….

  2. Heather Parker posted 12/13/2011

    My grandma's traditional Scottish shortbread. Each year she would make multiple batches, split them up into Christmas tins, and give them away as part of her Christmas gifts. She claimed that the shortbread – made with just butter, flour, sugar and an egg yolk – would keep "indefinitely" in the tins. Indeed, we often enjoyed it for months afterward! My grandma is in a nursing home now, but I've taken over the tradition – I'm already on my second batch of the season!

    Who can resist the holiday "Spritz" cookies. So buttery and rich. Perfect with Hot cocoa or tea or coffee. I just love them all year round. During the holidays a sprinkle of colored sugar helps them look so festive.

    My favorite is an old fashion oatmeal cookie filled with cranberries, walnuts and chocolate chips.

  5. Lay posted 12/19/2011

    All time favorite holiday cookie is Gingerbread and anything made with peppermint. Christmas isn't the same without either one of those cookies on the table.
