The World’s Best Cookie Recipes

POSTED April 30, 2019

Everyone should have a go-to cookie recipe for those days when you just need a little something sweet to top off a meal – or to start the day, because good cookies aren’t just for Christmas!! Whether it’s for the perfect chocolate chip cookie, snickerdoodle, peanut butter, or oatmeal – here’s a curated list of a baker’s dozen delicious cookie recipes to wake up to or follow any lunch, supper or dinner!

Laura at Joy Food Sunshine says this is the best Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe ever. It’s simple, straightforward, with nothing funny or fancy added and no substitutes – just amazingly delicious doughy but fully-baked disks of perfection. If there’s one secret Laura shares, it’s that the cookies should be pulled out as they are just BARELY turning brown. They’ll still look doughy, she says, but you never want to overbake chocolate chip cookies!

Epicurious showcases 113 of its favorite cookie recipes – all the usual suspects but even more tempting recipes like Apple Pie Cookies, Chocolate-Almond Praline cookies, Butterscotch-Potato Chip Balls, No-Bake Pistachio cookies, and Soft Gingerbread Tiles with Rum Butter Glaze. If you want to try something more exotic than the standard chocolate chip, sugar, or oatmeal cookie – this is the site to scroll!

These Blueberry Cream Cheese Cookies from Delish taste like spring.  Packed with blueberries and drizzled with simple powdered sugar glaze, these are little rounds of cheesecake in cookie form!

Three Ingredient Cookies

Blogger Arman Liew of Big Man’s World posted his three-ingredient breakfast cookies a couple of months ago that contain no flour, no eggs and no sugar! His gluten-free vegan breakfast cookie recipe uses rolled oats, peanut butter and chocolate chips. He likes bananas so he tosses one in the mix, too, but you don’t have to. Arman says quinoa flakes or buckwheat flakes will work, and if you don’t like peanut butter, use almond butter or even smooth tahini.

Gemma, the Irish baker who posts videos on YouTube under Gemma’s Bigger Bolder Baking, is a cookie maestro. Her three-ingredient cookies are the most popular cookies she makes. For her Shortbread Cookies creaming the butter, with sugar and flour takes 10 minutes, baking 18, so you can easily be dunking these little buttery beauties in milk or coffee in about a half an hour.

Gemma’s three ingredient Coconut Cookies use either unsweetened or sweetened shredded coconut and are gluten free. They look like macaroons and are just three ingredients – shredded coconut, sugar and coconut milk which binds the cookies together.

Check out Gemma’s Giant Single-Serving, Chocolate Brownie and homemade “Oreo” cookies, too! (Did you know Oreos are the number one fave of all store-bought cookies?)
