Countdown to Cookies: Expand Your Horizons

Each year The Food Channel creates its Countdown to Christmas Cookies, bringing you some new choices for your holiday baking. Our recipes are chosen by our team of chefs and culinary artists after extensive research and discussion. This year they all agreed—it was time to move beyond the traditional cookie and “expand your horizons!”

That’s why our cookie selections are completely outside the ordinary. Of course, we have recipes for chocolate chip cookies, and pinwheels, and mint bars and more (just search “cookie” in our search bar and you’ll see!). But where else are you going to find a cookie series that includes pandan, cardamon, Oxaca chocolate, pistachios, matcha, and other on-trend ingredients! All of our recipes are ethnically-inspired and pretty unusual. Choose one or two and add them to your cookie baking this season and see how your family and guests react. If it’s like the tasters in our kitchens, it will be with oohs, ahs, and yums!
