Slideshow SLIDESHOW: 30 Cookie Recipes from the 2011 Serious Eats Cookie Swap

The Serious Eats Cookie Swap has become an annual tradition. We break out the Duane Reade tinsel and twinkle lights, and are forced to do a major office detox to make room for cookies. Many, many cookies. (OK, maybe a dozen doughnuts snuck in this year too). It was our third year swapping, and as per tradition, the tables were covered with butter-laden treats. Our NYC-based contributors really pulled out their ninja baking skills.


We swapped everything from bacon-chocolate chippers and Delta-inspired Biscoff cookies to PB&J bars and rugelach (as you can see, we weren't too stringent on the definition of "cookie"). Cookie swaps are essentially just an excuse to gather around a big table, size up the other cookie contributions (just kidding, SEHQ is an accepting place), merrymake with the SE family, and proceed to feel debilitated and sugar-hungover once you realize that dinner was comprised of 30 nibbles of cookies.
