Whether you want to (1) discover the top 100 most delicious cookie recipes, (2) be the hero who brings the joy of fresh baked cookies into the world, or (3) have delicious home baked cookies anytime you want, then this is the book for you!
In this cookie recipe book you will find plenty of opportunities to experience the breadth of variety available with cookies. The cookie is easily dressed up or down. I’ve included recipes appropriate for any level of formality, from the most delicate lace to the sturdiest travel fare. If it’s a special occasion, make the cookies special, the results will be sure to add fresh glamour to the event. If you’re throwing a party, make the cookies something worth writing home about!
If your go-to recipe is a drop cookie (and whose isn’t?), try making bar cookies instead. They’re even simpler to make than drop cookies! Rolled cookies can add a little pizzazz to your dessert tray without entailing much extra effort. If children are there, let them help decorate cutout cookies or spoon out no-bake cookies onto wax paper to cool.
Most cookies will tolerate any number of additions, so feel free to play with them and try out new flavor and texture combinations. If you’re used to making basic brownies for your crowd, try making lemon bars for a change. Sandwich cookies are a creative paradise, because you can introduce any number of flavor and color variations. Likewise, oatmeal cookies taste great with any number of ingredients added to them.
I’ve already mentioned sandwich cookies; the ones you make at home are healthier because they lack the preservatives that are added to the store-bought variety. If you like ginger snaps, you can easily make your own. The same goes for snicker doodles, macaroons, oatmeal drop cookies, and chocolate chip cookies. Prefer your cookies crunchy? Then make them crunchy. Prefer them chewy? Make them according to your own liking.
