Cookie Recipes

These better-than-store-bought recipes for cookies are easy enough for beginner bakers yet showy enough to be worthy of a blue ribbon at the state fair. Snickerdoodle Cookies, chocolate chip cookies, molasses cookies, oatmeal cookies, and even homemade graham crackers; you’re all set to be the ace of bakes once you have these cookie recipes in your back pocket.

My best cookie and bar recipes cover a wide range of dessert territory: cheesecake bars, chocolate brownies, pumpkin bars, Christmas cookies, seven layer bars, and more. Feel like a kid again with sprinkle-coated Circus Animal Cookies, candy bar-topped Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake, “kissed” Peanut Butter Blossoms, and Midwest-classic Scotcheroos (bar cookies totally count as cookies if you ask me!). You’ll definitely win the bake sale with cookie recipes M&M Cookies, Confetti Cookies, and Homemade Twix Bars. Come holiday season, try homemade Thumbprint Cookies, Double Ginger Cookies, Linzer Cookies, or Christmas Sugar Cookies.
