18 Fabulous Cookie Recipes to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

18 Fabulous Cookie Recipes to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

I am a cookie monster. Therefore, I feel the need to share all of these amazing cookie recipes with you today.

I grew up with a single mom who was way too busy to cook anything from scratch except her famous chocolate chip cookies. Helping mom carefully stir the batter, forming (oddly shaped) cookie dough balls and sneaking little bittersweet chocolate chips were precious memories from my childhood. It makes me feel all warm and gooey inside just thinking about it. Or maybe I’m describing the way a freshly baked cookie tastes right out of the oven?

Cookies are simply the best dessert ever created. I even created an entire Pinterest board for this delectable dessert filled with over 200 cookie recipes that I personally pinned.

Let me explain exactly why cookies are so awesome:

  1. Cookies are single serve. No utensils are needed to divide them up.
  2. They aren’t hard at all to transport. No cake tin or pie plate cover necessary.
  3. Cookies are the perfect party dessert since you can stand and eat them (see: no utensils needed).
  4. They freeze well (so you can save more for later… and not eat the entire batch in one sitting).
  5. Cookies make excellent gifts.
  6. They can even be made a breakfast option, if you reduce the sugar
  7. They taste amazing if you find the right recipe and figure out what your preferred texture is (soft? cakey? crisp? chewy?)

Here are some recipes to get you started and hopefully win you over to the view that cookies are the best dessert option for so many reasons:

1. Lemon Snickerdoodle Funfetti Cookies via Diary of a Semi-Health Nut

              What a perfect fall recipe, featuring pumpkin and pecans! The author talks about how creamy they are because she used actual cream in making them. She then lists a bazillion other cookie recipes she’s made on her blog, so you will want to check those out as well.

              7. Almond Delight Cookies via Diary of a Semi-Health Nut

                  9. Grain Free Protein Peanut Butter Cookies via Fit Foodie Finds

                          salted vanilla toffee cookies // 18 fabulous cookie recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth

                            I remember making a basic cookie recipe, but subbing the chocolate chips for toffee and everyone at work went bananas. I think a salted toffee version would be even better.

                            14. Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies via Just a Taste

                              15. Frosted Flakes Chocolate Chip Cookies via Crazy for Crust

                                  17. 5 Ingredient Oreo Cheesecake Cookies via Baker by Nature

                                  oreo cheesecake cookies

                                    I was kind of amazed to see that a recipe with Oreos and cheesecake already in the title only required three more ingredients—and it’s true. Only five ingredients are needed to create this mouthwatering cookie recipe.

                                    18. Chocolate Crinkle Cookies via Something Swanky

                                      So, tell me… which of these fabulous cookie recipes will you try first?
