Cookies, cookies, cookies. There’s really nothing better than a tray of fresh and warm cookies, straight from the oven. This list has something for everyone–we’ve got simple and fuss-free to packed with ingredients like potato chips, toffee, and pretzels. Make sure you have something to dunk ’em in!
Crisp Peanut Butter Cookies
These uncannily crisp, seemingly shortbreadish cookies from San Francisco’s Miette are–and we mean this–unlike any you’ve ever encountered.
Potato Chip Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies
Here’s what to bake when you don’t know exactly what you’re craving but you know it needs to be indulgent. And indecently good.
Vanilla Bean Oatmeal Cookies
A classic that’s loved by nearly everybody. A chewy center and delicate flavor of vanilla give them an appeal beyond your everyday oatmeal biscuits. Perfect for sharing, too.
Exactly like those soft, puffy, cakey frosted sugar cookies found in the bakery of your local grocery store that the kids beg you to buy—minus the scary artificial ingredients.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Crisp at the edges, chewy in the center, and (sorta) wholesome through and through, these are a revelatory riff on the classic.
Chewy and nutty and salty and subtly sweet and guaranteed to be a little more exotic than any other cookie you’ve ever had. Also gluten-free as well as dairy-free and egg-free and, yes, paleo-friendly.
The curious name of these insanely can’t-stop-eating-these sweet and salty cookies hints at how you toss in whatever this and that you have on hand to create awesomeness.
Coconut Lime Cookies
Think sugar cookie meets margarita. Or something like that. And just as difficult to stop at a single taste.
Chewy Molasses Cookies
The holidays incarnate. That’s what these cookies are to us. They’re magnificently and traditionally spiced and are crinkly and chewy. All in the best possible sort of way.
Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies
Subtly sweet and slightly crumbly, these chocolate cookies are indulgent through and through yet in a sorta sophisticated way. Tasting is understanding.
Homemade Milano Cookies
Forget Pepperidge Farm. Where’s the satisfaction in just ripping the bag open? Where’s the longing that comes with anticipation? Right here with these homemade Milanos.
French Butter Cookies
Call them whatever you will. Breton butter cookies. French biscuits. Sables. We call them simply impossible to stop noshing.
Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies
Certainly you’ve heard the story behind this $250 recipe. But have you tasted the cookies? That’s what we thought. Let’s remedy that.
Wheat-Free Butter Cookies
Believe it. Wheat-free, slice-n-bake cookies that taste like the real deal without fuss or crazy ingredients. You’re welcome.
Salted Caramel and Pretzel Cookies
Sweetly salty. Crunchy tender. Unexpectedly familiar. Simply complex. We confess, we’re dumbstruck by these little contradictory lovelies.
Vegan Chocolate Chip Brownie Swirl Cookies
For those days when you can’t choose between fudgy brownies and classic chocolate chip cookies. (A typical day for us!) Here’s how not to do without.
