  1. My favourite are chocolate chip cookies with a sprinkle of sea salt, the kind that are soft on the inside with a crunch on the outside. Yum!

  2. Ginger Molasses cookies are my favorite – especially during this season. :) mmmmm. I made a big batch and have them in the fridge right now – dangerous.

  3. Snickerdoodles – once, I accidentally made a batch with twice as much butter as the recipe called for, and they were even more amazing.

  4. My favorite is the chocolate chip campfire cookie that’s baked in the mini cast iron pan. Or in a big cast iron pan then topped with some ice cream. ;)

  5. Definitely homemade chocolate chip with mini chocolate chips and lots of walnuts, fresh from the oven. And maybe a spoonful before they make it into the oven. ;)

  6. This look delicious! My husband worked at a nationally known cookie company for a number of years. My favorite cookie at that time became one that he actually made. They are oatmeal cookies with cranberries and almonds. They are not too sweet and so yummy. :)

  7. One of my favourites is something my mother calls a cherry wink– endearing by name alone! They are chewy with dates, crunchy with corn flakes, and, of course, topped with a maraschino cherry.

  8. Gosh this is a hard one. I guess my ultimate is a salted chocolate chip cookie. The avalon bakery make an amazing one here in Detroit.

  9. It’s a toss up between chocolate chippies (made the Edmonds cookbook recipe, of course, and preferable eaten in dog form), or Griffins ginger nuts – they’ll break your teeth, but warm your heart!

  10. Tossi’s, hands down! We only bake them for Christmas, whch makes them a special and eagerly anticipated treat. The crunchy top, ooey gooey center, and crumbly light cream cheese crust; mmmmmmm.

  11. Believe it or not Whole Foods “Jumble” cookie is my all-time favorite cookie. It is the perfect combo of sweet and salty, has a great texture, and goes perfectly with a hot cup of coffee.

  12. My favorite cookie is a s’more cookie: chocolate chip with graham crumbs, honey and half a marshmallow stuffed inside. When it comes out of the oven–it’s so soft and gooey and the chocolate has melted. Yum! And this is also my favorite because I baked these the night I got my first kiss so they’ll always remind me of that very special man I hold so close in my heart :*

  13. Oatmeal wafers (“havreflarn” in Swedish). They’re delicious and remind me of my childhood whenever I eat them. They’re super simple and the batter only takes about 5 minutes to make. It’s so good, sometimes you just can’t even make yourself actually put them in the oven (although, when you do, they turn out great every time!). Ah. Now I’ll have to go make them.
