The holidays mean one thing: all cookies, all the time. This issue is loaded with FOMO (fear of missing out) cookies, the perfect moniker for each cookie recipe because choosing just one cookie experience is impossible! Take our cover star, the festively packed cookie box by Erin Clarkson (of the blog Cloudy Kitchen). Each cookie will become a new holiday favorite, from the Salted Caramel Snickerdoodles to the Earl grey scented sugar cookies, and you’ll only find out from baking each one. The incredible thing about this issue is that it’s not just packed with FOMO cookies. It’s also stacked with bakers who are changing the industry. We brought on Sarah Kieffer, the genius behind the sensational Pan-Banging Cookies heard ’round the internet. We also checked back in with Edd Kimber, our contributing editor, and asked him to recreate his epic brownie crinkle cookie with a black cocoa twist. And then there’s Rebecca Firth, our Chinese five-spice guru, offering up more Asian-inspired treats that’ll change your holiday cookie game forever. Even if you just came for a new collection of traditional cookies, you won’t be disappointed. We’re offering so many angles on gingerbread you won’t even know where to start.
