Last week, the Everyday Food team stayed late after work last week to bake and swap cookies, so we had an array of treats to give our friends. Click through the gallery to check out our behind-the-scenes shots. Links to the recipes (most of them, anyway... a couple are personal and one is a secret family recipe) are after the jump. Happy baking everyone!

Pecan bars Feel free to drizzle melted semi-sweet chocolate over the cooled bars.
The salted caramels are Jesse's but here's a great recipe for Chocolate-Caramel Cookie bars
Pinwheels, Checkerboards, same thing.
Khalil is keeping his family's recipe for gingerbread close to the vest, but here's a tried and true one. A Martha favorite!
