It's officially December, which means celebrating the holidays with sweet treats is happening pretty much on the daily. And that, dear readers, is something we're taking full advantage of. With a bevy of seasonal soirées on the horizon, there's no way we're going to be the girl arriving to the party with a Safeway bag in tow.

To inspire a baking spree, we tapped S.F.'s top chefs for a lineup of delectable holiday cookie recipes. From the legendary Michael Mina's perfect warm chocolate-chip cookies to a crispy creation from Bar Agricole's Brandon Jew, try these six utterly amazing desserts straight from locals who know a thing or two about making things extra yummy. Get to clickin' … calories be damned!
