12 Days of Cookies 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.

With Food Network Kitchen's Brownie Cookies, you get the best of both worlds: Each cookie has crunchy-chewy edges and a moist, fudgy center. For those of us who gravitate toward the edge pieces in a pan of brownies, this recipe is a dream come true. Here's a pro tip: When preparing the batter, spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup, as scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods. Eat them fresh off the baking sheet — or for a twist on a brownie sundae, use them to build homemade ice cream sandwiches. Sea-salt caramel or peppermint ice cream would be particularly nice for the holidays.
