Is there anyone who doesn't love homemade cookies?
We don't think so!
"I am still convinced that a good, simple, homemade cookie is preferable to all the store-bought cookies one can find."
~ James Beard
There seems to be a 'Cookie Monster' lurking in each of us. Cookies make the quintessential lunch box treat, the perfect after school snack, an enjoyable afternoon tea accompaniment, and a satisfying midnight nibble.
They are the perfect, portable, sweet treat for both children and adults and a natural choice for our busy, hectic, modern lives. Of all the homemade treats, cookies are some of the easiest to make. There are even many No Bake Cookies Recipes!
I think still warm-from-the-oven Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies may be the absolute ultimate comfort food.

The Best Cookie Recipes Help Create Lasting Memories
Baking and sharing homemade cookies can create memories that last a lifetime.
My earliest cookie baking memories date back to 1970s. Every year our parents would spend a Saturday in December Christmas shopping. They would leave first thing in the morning and return late in the evening. Nana would come to be with us and I would spend the day in the kitchen mixing, forming and baking cookies.
My favorite cookie recipes back then included sour cream sugar cookies with red and green sprinkles, molasses cookies, peanut butter blossoms, m&m cookies, and pinwheels. Our day of cookie mixing and baking would fill the house with the sweet smells of sugar, vanilla, and spice. We would fill decorative tins with our homemade cookie treasures and enjoy them throughout the holidays. Because of these memories and experiences for me Christmas and cookie baking will be forever entwined.
The summer of 1977 holds another special cookie making memory. I was fourteen years old and decided to make giant homemade oreo cookies for my younger brother, Pete, and three cousins who were visiting from Maine.
These six inch round cream filled chocolate cookie sandwiches were a huge hit. I spent what seemed like an entire day searching for a giant cookie recipe, measuring and mixing ingredients, baking the cookies two at a time, letting them cool, whipping the filling and assembling my cookie masterpieces.
I will never forget the look on their faces as I presented my giant cookies to them. It was my first taste of pleasing others with a homemade gift of food and I loved it. Baking homemade cookies for appreciative family and friends continues to bring me great joy. I think I may love giving homemade cookie gifts even more than I enjoy eating them.
