Every year, The Food Channel culinary crew gets together and comes up with a new set of cookies to help celebrate the holidays. This year we decided to commemorate the year with the beautiful 12 Days of Christmas series of plates from Williams-Sonoma, and give you one special cookie based on each day of the “12 Days of Christmas” English Christmas carol. Our recipes include original recipes as well as recipes adapted from sources collected over the years–ones we’ve used in our own homes, so that the original creator isn’t even known anymore. We had great fun putting the series together and choosing recipes from Pear Cookies all the way through to Mini-Cakes in the shape of little drums. Celebrate your own 12 Days of Christmas by baking all 12, or choosing just the ones that your family will love! Find the links on this page, and happy holidays from The Food Channel.
