12 Days of Cookies: Minty Christmas Tree Cookies

It’s that time again — Food Network’s annual virtual cookie swap is here! The stars of The Kitchen and the chefs in Food Network Kitchen (our bustling test kitchen) have some ideas that are bound to make it into your annual rotation. Stock up on flour and sugar — you’re gonna need 'em.

These cookies look adorable lined up on a platter like an edible Christmas tree farm. The key to their tidy shape is the sugar cookie dough, which doesn’t spread when baked. Decorated with nonpareils, the cookies have a classic, charming look, but — surprise! You get to enjoy a crisp mint flavor when you take a bite.
