Have you heard about 12 Days of Cookies? Every year, the digital editors at Food Network dream up 13 sparkly new cookies (yes, 13 – we sneak in a bonus cookie!) to help you get your holiday baking started off deliciously.

I've worked on this cookie package for, wow, four years now, and I'm really excited about this year's batch. For instance, I've already made our Best M&M Cookies (they're first in the line-up because I think you should make them immediately). Our Bake-and-Slice Thumbprint Cookies are a twist on the classic that will get your cookie swap talking. And the Peppermint Bark Cookies, which you break into shards just like the bark you'd get in a tin, are so clever my cheeks hurt from smiliing about them.

If you're the type of person you likes the holidays to unfold gradually, with a new bit of festive cheer each day, we suggest you sign up for the 12 Days of Cookies newsletter — every day we'll deliver a new cookie (plus other fun holiday ideas) right to your inbox. But (here's a secret), if you're more of a Veruca Salt "I want it now!"-type, you can peek at all of this year's new cookies right here.

Make the Cookies LIVE With Us This Year!

And here's the other reason 12 Days of Cookies is so exciting this year: For the first time ever, you can cook a few of the cookies along with us LIVE on the Food Network Kitchen app! Catch our culinary experts' live classes on Brownie Mix Cookies, Bake-and-Slice Thumbprint Cookies and Peanut Butter Fudge — tap "remind me" in the app so you don't miss them!
