The Neelys’ Spiced Gingerbread Piggies — 12 Days of Cookies

by in Holidays, December 5th, 2011

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 for rolling, spooning, slicing, baking and decorating delicious sweet treats to give — or keep — from favorite Food Network chefs. Visit Cooking Channel’s blog for even more great takes on holiday baking from Cooking Channel chefs and Food People alike.

While I cannot confirm this for sure, I imagine that Santa’s favorite cookies are gingerbreads, with a classic holiday taste, warm spices and fun shapes. Let your kids help you roll out the cayenne-infused dough and leave a few of the reindeer cutouts on Santa’s plate. Gina Neely prefers the pig-shaped cookies, telling Food Network Magazine that her home has a “pig parlor” with many pig decorations.
