And after baking these recipes more times than I can count, I have faith that they won’t let you down!
Let’s get to baking.
The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies
“I am known as the cookie queen to my friends. I have been making chocolate chip cookies for as long as I can remember. I found a recipe that I loved that I’ve been making for a couple years now and just came across this. I’ve decided to make them and these are literally the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever eaten. I will be making these from now on! Follow the directions exactly and they are absolutely delicious!” -Jema
“Best gingerbread cookies ever! As spicy as ginger snaps. Strong enough to put icing on but still soft inside if you do 1/8 inch. Crispy if you do 1/4 roll. Thank you.” ~Haddie
Brown Sugar Cookies
“These cookies are AMAZING. I never leave comments or reviews but I had to for these. I made four batches and every single one turned out perfectly. Sugar cookies are usually boring but I love the subtle flavor of these. I will be using this recipe for my Christmas cookies for years to come. Thank you!” ~Katie
Peanut Butter Blossoms
“Came together really fast and baked quickly. They were so good, I’ll be making another batch as a birthday present for my sister!” ~Christy
Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies
“This recipe is a gift. I bake all of the time and this is the only recipe that people routinely ask me for. It is a staple for all family gatherings and friend events because everyone loves these cookies so much. I cannot recommend this recipe enough.” ~Maya
“I made these as part of my Christmas cookie baking session yesterday. They are SO GOOD! I filled half with seedless raspberry jam and half with nutella. Thanks for the amazing cookie recipe!” ~Vanessa
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
“This was, hands down, the BEST chocolate crinkle cookie recipe I have ever tried! They stay fresh and they are very moist with a decadent texture. I highly recommend this recipe. Thanks for sharing!” ~Angie
Peanut Butter Cookies
“The best peanut butter cookie recipe I’ve ever had. Easy to follow recipe, I made it exactly as stated, I would not change anything. Cookies looked amazing and tasted wonderful! Not too sweet with the perfect balance of peanut butter. Everyone that tried them, loved them.” ~Jen
No Bake Cookies
“I love your cookie recipes! No bakes can be so finicky, but this recipe was perfect! I used almond milk because that’s all I had, and they still turned out delicious! Thanks Ali!” ~Joni
“These taste incredible! My daughter and I had a lot of fun making them together today. We did half with white chocolate pieces and half with M&Ms. Love your site! Directions are always easy to follow and everything is always delicious.” ~Jess
“Ok, these cookies are SO fun! I was a little doubtful that the tops would turn out as shiny and crackly as the pictures, but your instructions were perfect and they turned out great! As a family of brownie lovers, these are 100% going in our regular rotation.” ~Kara
Happy cookie baking, everyone!
