Top 10 Cookie Recipes from the Blog
It's cookie season!
'Tis the season to bake and swap and gift and receive and consume lots and lots of cookies. Cookie season is my favorite season. Aside from summer, of course, because A- it's summer we're talking about, and B- I enjoy plenty of cookies in the summer too.
To celebrate the season of cookies, I decided to compile a list of the top ten most popular cookie recipes from the blog. And to create this very important list, I took several things into account. To make the cut, the cookie recipes below had to meet certain criteria: the cookie recipe either had to be one of the most viewed cookie recipes on the blog, or it had to be a recipe that I received a lot of positive feedback for, or it had to be a recipe that friends and family and customers requested the most often.
So, without further ado, here are the top 10 cookie recipes from the blog (in no particular order). To view a recipe, just click on its title:
These no-butter chocolate chip cookies are thick, soft, gooey, easy to make, loaded with chunks of chocolate, and use coconut oil in place of butter. They're seriously amazing!
These are the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies. I've never worked longer or harder to create a recipe as I did for these chocolate chip cookies. Prepare to bite into a thick, soft, gooey cookie that has loads of chocolate and is full of rich caramel and butterscotch flavors from the brown butter. Oh, and there's a video tutorial included.
These easy no-butter lemon cookies are soft and melt-in-your-mouth, tangy and bright from lots of fresh lemon flavor, and are so rich and gooey from the coconut oil.
These flourless almond butter cookies are some of the chewiest cookies you'll come across. They're also soft, loaded with chocolate chunks, and made without any gluten, dairy, oil, or refined sugars. Warning: they're addictive!
Behold, the best no-butter snickerdoodle cookies. Sink your teeth into these super soft, gooey, thick cookies coated in cinnamon and sugar and made in minutes with coconut oil. Too good!
No biggie, but these are like the best peanut butter cookies. These cookies are soft, thick, chewy, gooey, and packed with chocolate chunks and rich peanut butter flavor. Oh, and flourless too.
These mini meringues have gone viral, and for good reason. Included with this recipe is a step-by-step photo tutorial on how to make perfect meringues every time. And you can choose to make them chewy or crunchy, mini or large!
These no-butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are egg-free, super chewy, easy to make, packed with chocolate chunks, and are made healthier with whole wheat flour and honey. While this recipe has always worked for me, a few readers did have some trouble with this dough - if you're one of those readers, I'd suggest that you either add an egg into your dough, or just REALLY pack the dough together when you're shaping the balls.
These cookies taste 100000x better than they look. Ignoring the terrible photo (this recipe was one of the first I posted to the blog, when I had no idea what the buttons on my camera did) and general unhandsomeness of these cookies, trust me when I tell you that these cookies are some of the best out there - INCREDIBLY CHEWY, soooo flavorful, easy-peasy, and free of gluten, dairy, oil, and refined sugar.
Guess what? These gluten-free salted chocolate fudge cookies taste like a bar of salted dark chocolate that's rich, soft, melty, fudgy, and gooey. So if that sounds like a bar of chocolate you'd be into, I think you'd be into these cookies as well.
