Favorite Cookies Round-Up!

Guys! It’s the most wonderful time of the year…COOKIE SEASON! Today, I’m sharing some of my faves from the archives because sometimes we need a little inspiration.

And, really, what could be better than cookie-inspiration? Not much, I say.

Oatmeal Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies: My mom, an avid non-baker, made these cookies for a cookie party this year and won BEST COOKIE. So, basically, they are awesome. Chewy Ginger Chocolate Chip Cookies: These combine two of my favorite things–chewy ginger cookies and chocolate chip, then I rolled them in crunchy pearl sugar. Chewy Chocolate Ginger Spice Cookies: These are super similar to the cookies I just mentioned, but there’s cocoa in the actual dough. I am just smitten with the chocolate-ginger combo, obvs.

Malted Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing: These cookies turned Sean from a pumkin-treats-hater to lover. They are basically magic. Iced Eggnog Cookies: These cookies are super soft, cake-like, and full of eggnog flavor. Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies: These cookies are a staple in our house…I make them the most.

Chocolate Pecan Cookies with Sea Salt: These pecan-studded cookies are rich and deeply chocolate-y. So much to love. Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies: Salty, Sweet, Chocolate-y, Peanut Butter Goodness. There isn’t much to say here. Peanut Butter Ninjas: The peanut butter in these cookies is stealthily hidden beneath the chocolate dough.

Alfajores: Buttery cookie + Dulce de Leche…I mean… Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars: Everyones fave, in bar form. Chocolate Mint Creme Sandwiches: These cookies are like little cookie-brownies sandwiched with the best creamy, minty goodness. Also, cute.

Smoked Salt and Almond Shortbread Stars: I love almonds, smoked salt, and butter…these cookies have it all. Citrus Gingerbread Trees: A little, citrus twist on classic gingerbread. Get your royal icing on! Pistachio + Apricot Jam Thumbprints: A classic, but with pistachios and apricot. Graham Crackers: So simple, yet so satisfying.

    I still need to make those cute pretzel guys and the cookie bars. I do have some cream cheese up in my fridge, so consider those bars baked!

    The cookie monster in me is so HAPPY about this post. I wish there was enough time to make every recipe in December. Or enough wiggle room in my jeans to eat them all.

    I think what becomes clear after this post is that you have attended some sort of secret Cookie University, and are perhaps now a Professor there. IF this is true, you have to tell me, because I would be a great student.

    Oh my gosh woman this is amazing!!! So, so perfect since I was just starting to put together my list for cookie baking this year. I love the look of those ginger cookies rolled in pearl sugar! And the mint cookie sandwiches! And the alfajores (my favvvvv!) I will definitely be using some of these ideas!
