Cooking Channel is joining Food Network for our first annual cookie swap, 12 Days of Cookies. Each day, visit us here for a look at new holiday cookies, party-planning tips and top techniques for rolling, spooning, slicing, baking and decorating delicious sweet treats to give — or keep — from favorite chefs and Food People. Then visit FoodNetwork.com/12daysofcookies for great takes on holiday baking from Food Network chefs — cookies by the dozen to celebrate all season.

Jamie Oliver eats these Almond and Pine Nut Cookies warm from the oven. Essentially a pumped up oatmeal cookie with nuts galore, these simple, hearty and just-sweet-enough treats are a good, honest addition to the more specialized fare that's probably coming out of your oven this month.

Bake up a batch and fill your kitchen with the familiar flavors of the season: toasted nuts, sugary oatmeal, melting butter.

Melanie Rehak, author of Eating for Beginners, has been baking cookies since she was old enough to climb onto the kitchen stool. She's partial to Zimtsterne—cinnamon stars—for the holidays, but loves most cookies all year long.
