Food Network's 12 Days of Cookies: 2005

12daysofcookies.jpgThe big holiday dash is upon us all, and we're almost through counting down the 12 Days of Cookies lists. For all those searching folks, I will be posting links to the Food Network's 2007 recipes on Thursday. It'd be nice if they did it themselves, but whatever.

The year 2005 might be seen as the zenith (so far) of Food Network's Christmas cookie efforts. The recipes from this list got their own television special and a viewer cookie contest that brought us the recipe for S'More Rockin' Reindeer Ravioli.

I remember watching that special a couple of years ago (by the way, it aired again yesterday and will rerun on Dec. 22 also). It's hosted by a guy whose once heavily promoted primetime show has been demoted to the near-graveyard of midweek mornings. The bit on the Ravioli has the creator talking about how she came up with the recipe as a way to one up the guy who always brought a creative original cookie to the work party every year.

And a merry Christmas to you, too!

The Rosemary Cheese Spritz are quite tasty and an excellent excuse to pull out the cookie press again. I'll be making the Booze Balls in the coming week for our Christmas celebrations as they don't require baking.

While the 2005 cookies were still listed on Food Network's main 12 Days of Cookies page as of 2007, if you want to check out how the list looked circa 2005, I uncovered another old, orphaned 12 Days of Cookies page. As you can see, we have to be thankful that we get links to any of the previous years at all nowadays.
