When it comes to our love for cookies, Santa's elves have nothing on us. It's that time of year when our ovens get even more love than our stoves — nothing feels more Christmas-y than biting into a fudgy, homemade confection.
Despite our eternal devotion to the good ol' chocolate-chip variety, the season really calls for more imaginative creations. Who better to ask for inspiration than Christina Tosi
, the woman who brought us the incredibly addictive compost cookie
? The Momofuku Milk Bar
lady-in-charge has created three exclusive recipes that put a holiday spin on our favorite complement to a glass of milk. If you're somehow on the fence about the idea of a candy-cane pretzel crumble, the less-than-20-minutes hands-on time will surely win you over. Click through as Tosi walks us through the step-by-step to the sweetest stocking stuffers, ever.
