Cookie jar looking a little empty? Today’s post is just what you need to fill it right back up again. These recipes are so tasty though that your cookie jar surely won’t stay full for long, so you’ll want to pick out a couple of recipes to bake once it’s been emptied.
Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
If you love the Girl Scout cookies Do-si-dos, you will love this recipe. These cookies are incredibly rich and absolutely delicious – perfect for any peanut butter lover in your life!
Brownie cookies are just what you need when you’re desperate for chocolate, but don’t want a whole pan of brownies sitting on the kitchen counter for days, tempting you to slice just one more tiny nibble as you walk by. These cookies may not be more healthy or less-indulgent, but they are thin and delicate, giving the illusion of restraint – ha! Plus, they are easy to share with others, if you can bear to part with them!
Ginger snaps were always a favorite in our house growing up. Although most often baked during the holiday season, we ate them year-round. They are just so tasty dipped in a glass of milk or into a mug of hot tea on a rainy day. Plus, kids can help with just about every step, including rolling the cookie dough balls into coarse sugar.
Calico Cat and Dotty Dalmatian Cookies
If you have a little one who loves kittens and puppies, these are just the treats for you. They have such a fun calico pattern on them too, all without the time-consuming effort of frosting. Let the dough do the work – simply add food coloring to the sugar cookie dough, roll the colors together somewhat strategically, and flatten them out to bake. No two look the same, but all end up adorable!
Gluten-Free Nutella and Peanut Butter Heart Cookies
Peanut butter and chocolate are a classic flavor combination, so these cookies are a no-brainer. This recipe is super easy to make with kids – measure out all the ingredients beforehand and have kids dump everything in the mixer.
Chocolate Sugar Cookies
A little bit of chocolate in the afternoon with a hot cup of coffee is the perfect treat. Some days just a little square will do, but if you’re wanting to mix things up a little, these sugar cookies are a tasty option. These chocolate sugar cookies are soft and delicious without being too rich and sweet – the perfect afternoon indulgence.
Oatmeal Cream Pies
Grocery store oatmeal cream pies are an all-time classic, but making your own from scratch is a whole new kind of magic. This recipe uses swiss meringue buttercream for the filling instead of the usual marshmallow fluff. Yum!
Spring Fever Sugar Cookies
Pull out the colorful sprinkles and make these spring fever sugar cookies. The bright colors are sure to cheer you up a bit even if it isn’t quite spring yet!
The Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookies
Store-bought peanut butter cookies just can’t compare to homemade, so we keep this recipe handy for whenever we have a sugar craving, a rainy day … or any day for that matter! Kids will love helping with the oh-so-important and super fun task of creating the crosshatch pattern on top.
