House & Home’s Favorite Bakers Share Their Festive Cookie Recipes

Who has time to bake 10 different cookies for the holidays? We don’t! So, we asked our seven favorite bakers to share their best holiday treats, in case you want to host a classic cookie exchange. The rules are simple: each guest brings dozens of one of their favorite homemade treats. You provide tins, parchment liners, string — and plenty of wine.

These 10 recipes are the personal favorites of our überbakers: Devin Connell, food blogger and cookbook author, Philip Haddad, founder of Emmer, Toronto’s hottest new bakery, Christina Tosi of Milk Bar fame, Mary Berg, cooking show host and cookbook author, Jenna Hutchinson and Ashley Kosowan, the co-owners of Winnipeg’s Jenna Rae Cakes, and Rosie Daykin, cookbook author and founder of Butter Baked Goods. We watched these cookies come out of the ovens, and every one is amazing. Happy baking!
