The Inaugural Serious Eats Cookie Swap

Christmas Chocolate Cookies

Nothing says the holidays like a table full of butter-laden treats. So this year the Serious Eats editors, columnists, and FoSE (Friends of Serious Eats) gathered around the conference table at SE World Headquarters to swap sweets, sip some Ronnybrook nog, and be merry. We weren't too strict on the "cookie" part of cookie swap—we let a few bars and brownies creep in there, too. Check out photos of all the cookies after the jump or peruse the recipes here:
