Food Network's 12 Days of Cookies: 2006

12daysofcookies.jpgThe cookies dropping into our inboxes in 2006 didn't look like the held much holiday promise at first: Black and White Cookies? Chocolate Chips? What's this, the 12 Days of Lunchbox Cookies?

But even though Food Network would continue the trend by trying to pass off Whoopie Pies as special holiday fare rather than your typical bake-sale buy, they did plug in a number of festive recipes to make up for it.

I'd never seen such a triangular macaroon, but the shape is reminiscent of a Christmas tree, especially with those jewel-like cranberries (there's some holiday flavor for ya) shining out like ornaments. Plus, nothing says "Christmas" like a cookie (or in this case, a bar) decorated with candy cane bits.

Props to what looks like an old Food Network blog for cluing me in to the bonus cookie that accompanied 2006's cookie newsletter.
