5 Best Tried and True Cookie Recipes

5 Best Tried and True Cookie Recipes

To me, the cookie stands apart from all other desserts.

Perhaps it's variety. Or how portable it is. Maybe it's the built in portion control of the serving size. Perhaps the mix of ingredients and flavors integrated into a simple circle.

Regardless of why they are so appealing, only the truly black-hearted turn down a good cookie.

As Jerry Seinfeld said, "Look to the cookie".

Here are a collection of my favorite cookie recipes. Nothing too over the top (nothing containing bacon) or ‘gourmet’. Just tried and true to bring a smile to your face.

Chai Spiced Sugar Cookies

Chai Spiced Sugar Cookies

A twist on the standard sugar cookie, these chai spiced sugar cookies are solid, without being hard; soft without the danger of falling apart in your hand.

And tasty. Very, very tasty.

Perfect Pumpkin Cookies

Perfect Pumpkin Cookies With Cream Cheese Frosting

These pumpkin cookies are beyond good. It’s like a small pumpkin pie without the crust.

These are very rich and not particularly healthy due to the Paula-Deen-amount of butter. But worth it.

I also recommend making smaller cookies than is recommended in the recipe. Otherwise, you won’t be able to eat an entire cookie without slipping into a coma.

Peppermint Kiss Cookies

These peppermint cookies are as good excuse as any to pick up some Hershey’s Peppermint Kisses. The sugar cookies get a boost from the ground candy canes as well.

Six Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Crinkles

Six Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Crinkles (GLuten-free)

A cookie with only 6 ingredients?! What magic is this? Time-saving magic, that's what.

Don’t let the fact that these are gluten-free scare you. The Yammie knows what she’s doing and these are fantastic.

Best Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies In the World

Best Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies In the World

You can’t mention cookies without including chocolate chip cookies.

These are definitely the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made. Better than the mixes, better than the break apart ones. They come out consistently perfect every time I make them.

They are great tasting, the chocolate chips string even when cold (just like in the commercials), and even if they don't disappear overnight, they stay moist and chewy even after several days.

Tip: Use the bittersweet chocolate chips that the recipe calls for. You can use semi-sweet if you must, but it's not the same.

(Warning: The recipe does contain some... salty language, so proceed with caution.)
