Cookie Recipes

Cookies are a go-to dessert standby. We've got all varieties, all shapes, all sizes, and all flavors in this collection of cookies. If you've got a flavor favorite, we've got recipes for you to try: shortbread, peanut butter, raspberry, chocolate—you name it! If you don't want to turn on the oven, no problem: There are fantastic no-bake favorites that minimize fuss and maximize flavor. Bar cookies are great for feeding dessert to a crowd; use our step-by-step guide to get the perfect bar cookies every time. Baking cookies is simple to do, but there are many factors that can affect the final result. We'll help you test cookies for perfect doneness and give you cookie-cutting tips for shaped cookies. We'll also teach you how to find the best cookie sheet, as well as some hints on how to line a pan (and save yourself cleanup, too). Cookies are great for freezing and storing, and they're the perfect vehicle for experimenting with different types of sweeteners and flours. We've got advice for all of that here, too.
