It's time for 12 Days of Cookies, Food Network's annual virtual cookie swap. Each day, visit us here on FN Dish for a peek at new holiday cookies, party-planning tips and top techniques from your favorite Food Network chefs for rolling, spooning, slicing, baking and decorating delicious sweet treats to give — or keep.

This is basically Trisha Yearwood's favorite chocolate chip cookie batter recipe, but she's replaced the egg with applesauce so you get the same great flavor without the raw egg. Freeze the little balls of dough before dipping them in chocolate-almond bark, which helps them set more quickly. If you use regular milk chocolate, add a bit of coconut oil and it'll do the same trick.
