12 Days of CookiesIt’s time for 12 Days of Cookies, FoodNetwork.com’s annual cookie swap. Each day visit us here on the Dish for a peek 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 Food Network chefs. Then visit Cooking Channel’s blog for great takes on holiday baking from Cooking Channel chefs and Food People alike – cookies by the dozen to celebrate all season.

Turn ready-made sugar cookie dough into a dessert fit for anybody who graces your doorstep this season. Just add raspberry jam, lemon extract and chopped pecans, and voila — Sandra Lee’s Raspberry Cake Bars! Personally I think they’d be just as good for breakfast — especially if I can snag the corner piece.

Melanie Rehak, author of Eating for Beginners, has been baking cookies since she was old enough to climb onto the kitchen stool. She and her family are partial to Zimtsterne—cinnamon stars—for the holidays, but love cookies of all kinds all year long.

    I love Sandra, but her food doesn't sound like it would taste good. The ready made ingredients that she uses are often processed and full of artificial ingredients. I love the idea of semi-homemade though. I suppose you can find the premade ingredients that aren't so bad, but I always associate Sandra with boxed cake mix, which to me is a lot like eating splenda vs sugar.

      I love Sandra too, she is an inspiration for busy mothers and housewives that need shortcuts in the kitchen. I am married to a builder developer and entertain often. If it weren't for her recipes, shortcuts, and tablescapes I would not do as well as I do since discovering her show and cookbooks. I also would like to say that I met her in person at the Jacksonville Women's Show in 2010 and she was sincere and impressive.
