20 decadent cookie recipes for you to choose from! 🙂
I’m fan of cookies because they’re the perfect amount of sweet for me! I don’t need a lot to satisfy my sweet tooth so in 3-4 bites, I’m great! I love to bake them, enjoy and share some, and tuck a few into the freezer for later. All of these cookie recipes freeze great, so they’re right ready to go when you need a little treat. You can also freeze the dough in balls to cook later when you want hot from the oven cookies to enjoy! Yummmm! 🙂
Salted Caramel, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe just needs a tall glass of milk and you! It’s autumn so it’s that time of year where we’re all reaching for salted caramel and pumpkin!! These cookies are made with three different kinds of sweetness– salted caramel, peanut butter, and milk chocolate chips. Then… we wrap them all up in an amazingly soft cookie dough!
Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies are a surprisingly delicious combination in a cookie that your family and friends just won’t stop raving about! These babies are a great way to use up those amazingly fresh oranges that we have right now.
I’m totally in love with the Dried Wild Blueberries at Trader Joes… Oh my. Every little one is bursting with the most amazing blueberry flavor! They just showed up in the dried fruits section, I’m assuming they’re seasonal so be sure to get on over there and grab a couple of bags before they’re gone.
I am pretty sure that smells of pumpkin wafting from the kitchen has got to be as close to heaven as we can get! Then, throw in some milk chocolate chips and holy-moly these Pumpkin Milk Chocolate Cookies are truly divine.
Chiperoo Cookies to celebrate back to school with your kids this year and we will be celebrating lil’ Carter and Charlie’s birthdays! Carter loves cookies (most of the time they’re the healthier kind) and every once in while he gets the treat of traditional-super-delicious-homemade Chiperoo Cookies!
First batch in and they are looking fabulous, if I do say so myself! A test taste confirms that I am right on. Sweet sugar meets earthy pecans that sit sweetly on a shortbread type crust. I seal the deal with my Maple glaze!
Nutella White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are going to be your new favorite cookie! Grab a icy cold, tall glass of milk and a stack of these Nutella White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies–they’re the perfect pair! Oh my goodness!! Dunk away.
Let’s throw it back to when my son, Jake, had to make up a missing assignment in his Home Ec class (now, that is MY kind of homework). It was titled “Watchamacallits” and called for things like 60 Tbsp of flour, 32 Tbsp sugar, etc. He had to convert the mystery recipe and then make it. We discovered them to be a delightful Snickerdoodle Cookie. Best homework ever! 🙂
Peanut Butter Cookies are delicious but they’re even tastier all dressed up with some mouth-watering milk chocolate on them! These Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are going to put a smile on everybody’s lips that eats one.
I simply can not resist and in a sense NEED something sweet and buttery from time to time… which is why I am bringing you these delicious Rosemary Shortbread Cookies. I mean, the rosemary is from our herb garden, so technically it qualifies as garden fresh, right?!
Have you seen those delightful Salted Caramel Chips in the grocery stores? I ran into some the other day and just had to give them a try. How can you go wrong, really?! Salted Caramel and Milk Chocolate Chips together in one cookie is sure bring a huge smile to any who are lucky enough to enjoy one… or two… or three…
You’ll be baking up a batch of these Peanut Butter Ganache Chocolate Cookies tonight! Oh my. They look to-die-for, don’t they?! Lets all grab a glass of milk and bring on the flavor! 🙂
A few helpful tips for baking at higher elevations:
- If you live 3,000 feet above sea level or more it is considered high elevation and may take longer to cook/bake.
- Adjustments are needed for 5000+ feet and above:
- Reduce baking powder: for each teaspoon, decrease 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon.
- Reduce sugar: for each cup, decrease 2 tablespoons.
- Increase liquid: for each cup, add 2 to 4 tablespoons.
- Increase oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
- Check if it is done a little early.
- This takes some trial and error to get it right for you.

Coconut Oatmeal Cookies will bring a smile to your lips with every chewy-coconutty-deliciously fabulous bite! I just love coconut cookies! They’re always a welcome sight around our house. These cookies are made even sweeter by making them with a sugar replacer like Truvia. 🙂
Gluten-free Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe are simply 5 ingredients, then into the oven for crisp, flaky, and perfect peanut butter cookies! It doesn’t get much easier than mixing together peanut butter, oats, egg, coconut sugar, and dark chocolate chunks! Now, that’s the simplest recipe for peanut cookies I’ve ever heard of! Our Gluten-free Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe is SO good that no will ever guess they are gluten free. It’s our little secret!
Coconut Banana Cookies with Coconut Glaze are a beautiful combination of flavors that are deliciously meant to be together in a cookie. Coconut Banana Cookies with Coconut Glaze will be your new favorite way to use up those overripe bananas! I fell head-over-heels in love with these cookies. You’ve got to make some- just prepare yourselves to be completely awe struck Mmmmm hmm.
Apple Cinnamon Whole Wheat Cookies are a healthy snack that your kids will love! If your kids are anything like mine, they get very hungry during school! I loved to always have nutritious cookies like these on hand for them to take as snacks to school. Make a double batch and watch your children devour them and not even know that they are eating wheat flour!!
I’m such a fan of dried cherries! I just adore them. They’re tart mingled with sweet and bring a lovely tang to these Cherry, Pistachio, Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Then add in some dark chocolate chunks and pistachios… you’re mind will not believe what your tastebuds are saying! SO amazing.
I love to make these Fruit and Nut Breakfast Cookies on the weekend and then pop some in the freezer to grab on those hectic days during the week. They’re packed with oats, chia seeds, nuts, and fruit so they’ll keep you full and happy clear until lunch! Oh and they’re also great for a healthier snack too.
Hold onto your britches… these 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies are gonna knock your socks right off!! Mmmmm Hmmmm. Soooo simple to make and they taste like the real deal! I know I was skeptical when I first heard about them too but I’m telling you, you will totally LOVE everything about them.
Chocolate Chunk Banana Nut Cookies Recipe are they perfect way to use up those overripe bananas! YUMMY. They taste amazing and all things considered… they’re loaded with good for you ingredients like bananas, applesauce, oats, walnuts, and semi-sweet chocolate. You can replace the sugars with Truvia Baking Blend, Brown Sugar Baking Blends, or even honey would work to cut down the sugars a bit, if you’d like to. I replaced half the butter with applesauce, which works well in most baking recipes.
These cookies turned out moist and chewy and had the perfect amount of sweetness to them. If you’re okay with dairy, then I would highly recommend adding the chocolate chips! My kids were eating these for breakfast in the morning. Fruit, honey and oats – sounds pretty healthy to me!
