Here at PBS NewsHour, we decided that there was no better way to get in the holiday spirit than with a good old fashioned cookie-off. So we asked all of our in-house bakers to share their favorite holiday cookie recipes — some passed down from Nana and some adapted from a favorite source.

The result? Ten delicious kinds of cookies and a newsroom full of judges. The winners? Our taste buds. And yours! For your baking (and eating) enjoyment, we hope you enjoy these recipes!
