Lately, I’ve been on somewhat of a cookie binge, and man, oh, man, that’s made my family super happy.

All 9 of these recipes are easy to make and vetted by some pretty discerning taste testers. They all agree that these cookies are their favorites!
Before You Start Baking, Follow These 3 Tips For Making Great Cookies:
- Read the recipe a couple of times BEFORE you start baking.
- Make sure your eggs and butter are at room temperature. This makes such a difference when it’s time to start mixing ingredients.
- Sift dry ingredients together. Getting air into flour, baking powder, and baking soda helps make for fluffier cookies.
My Favorite Tools For Making Cookies
- My best tool for mixing is my trusty stand mixer.
- I can’t do without these super sturdy baking pans.
- These parchment paper sheets are a life-saver.
- I love these mixing bowls in different sizes.
- My go-to measuring spoons, dry measuring cups, and liquid measuring cups.
