OK, I’m obviously speaking from experience here, but after putting together this roundup of our best cookie recipes of all time, it’s clear that I’m going to have to preheat my oven soon.
As you can see above, I’m sharing a pretty big variety of cookie recipes. Cookie choices are based on mood, don’t you think?
Maybe you’re craving salty peanut butter cookies today, but that doesn’t mean you won’t want espresso cookies tomorrow. And although technically it’s not a baked cookie, is there ever a time you wouldn’t want edible cookie dough?
Starting off with a bang (as they say) with giant oversized chocolate chip cookies. I’ve made these a couple times, and trust me—they are incredible. I love the abundance of chocolate chips, crispy edges, and soft centers.

Here’s another novelty cookie that’s incredibly pleasing to the eyes—wall weaving cookies (!!).
Slice and bake cookies are pretty much genius. Similar to freezing cookie dough balls, these vanilla and thyme slice and bake cookies can be out of the freezer and in your oven in no time.

Last but not least, I had to include a recipe for the true peanut butter fans out there.
