I love cookies and make tons of them. I’m often asked for my favorites and that’s a loaded question.

How can I pick between a tender soft and buttery snickerdoodle, a gooey Snickers-stuffed chocolate chip cookie, or a beloved peanut butter cookie? They’re all so different, but all so good.

I wrote a Favorite Cookies List about 6 months ago, but as I make more cookies and try new recipes, the list changes. As of today, I’d be thrilled to gobble any of the following right off the baking sheet.

There’s always room for more cookie recipes and I’m giving away a copy of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer: All the Good Cookies

Cookies for Kids' Cancer: All the Good Cookies

About the Book

“In 2007, Gretchen Holt-Witt set the lofty goal of baking and selling 96,000 cookies during the holidays, all in the name of funding research for pediatric cancer, the #1 killer of kids in the United States and the disease her young son was battling. Armed with the determination of a mom on a mission plus the knowledge that funds for research mean more treatment options, better survival rates, and hope for the future, Holt-Witt succeeded in selling all 96,000 cookies and raising over $400,000 for new pediatric cancer treatments.

Soon after, Gretchen and her husband Larry founded Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a national nonprofit that inspires people to host bake sales of all sizes, from desktops and porches to entire corporations and communities, with some raising more than $100,000 in a day. Gretchen’s first book, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Best Bake Sale Cookbook, raised thousands more for pediatric cancer research. All the Good Cookies gathers a mouthwatering collection of recipes that promise to satisfy any cookie craving, with the author’s profits again going to the charity.”
