Our Favorite Cookie Recipes

No matter what time of year it is, it’s always the perfect time for a cookie. Our best cookie recipes satisfy any sweet tooth. Go beyond the standard chocolate chip cookie to incorporate whole grains or alternate nut butters, or give gluten-free cookie recipes a try.

Cookies are great for swapping and sharing, especially during the holidays, and these easy cookie recipes are ready for a crowd. Try adding spices to liven up a peanut butter cookie, or see how citrus can transform a cookie recipe into something special.

Many of our cookie recipes can be made in advance, with pre-scooping or rolling and cutting, making later baking a breeze. There’s no need to thaw cookie dough from the freezer — simply pop them onto a baking sheet and bake at the regular temperature, adding on a couple minutes in bake time as needed.

Whether you like drop cookies, rolled cookies, shortbread or anything in between, these cookie recipes will fit the bill. Serve them up with our favorite hot drinks for ultimate cookie dunking, or package them with some of our other gifts from the kitchen for the yummiest gift basket around.
