10 Cookie Flavors You Need To Try
They can be gooey, chewy, crispy, thin, thick, soft and are totally irresistible.
Cookies come in all different shapes and sizes, and in all sorts of different flavors.
I absolutely love cookies, so here are 10 of my favorite cookie flavors and ones you definitely need to try!
1) NYC Chocolate Chip Cookie
NYC cookies became popular thanks to Levain Bakery and now have taken the world by storm.
These cookies are soft and gooey in the middle and crisp and crunchy on the outside. They are also super thick and chunky. I love making these cookies ‘cause you don’t need a mixer. Yes you heard right!
If you’ve not tried these yet, what are you waiting for?! You can make these easily by hand and here is how; take a look at my top 10 tips for perfect NYC cookies while following this recipe from Cupcake Jemma.
2) NYC Double Chocolate Chip Cookie
What’s better than a chocolate chip NYC cookie? A double chocolate chip NYC cookie! These glorious chocolatey, gooey masterpieces will change your life. They are THAT delicious!
If you want to take these NYC double chocolate chip cookies to the next level, add chopped white chocolate. You will not regret it!
3) Oreo Stuffed Cookies
Oreos and cookies? Or better yet, oreos stuffed inside cookies? Whoever thought of this deadly combination is a legend!
You get a crisp exterior, soft cookie in the inside, and right at the center, an oreo. What more could you want from a cookie?
There are plenty of recipes out there for oreo stuffed cookies, but I find that this recipe works a treat every single time.
4) Nutella Stuffed Cookies
If you love a cookie with a gooey center, then these are right up your street.
Nutella is loved by everyone and goes with pretty much anything, so why not add it to your cookies?
Remember to eat them while they are still warm so you get the full Nutella ooziness experience. Yum. Check out this delicious recipe from Jane’s Patisserie.
5) Macadamia Nut Cookies
These are my go to cookies when I am trying to be a bit healthy…or that’s what I tell myself to make myself feel better…
I don’t make these often because my family prefers the rather unhealthy NYC double chocolate chip cookies. But when I do make them, I know they are all for me and I don’t need to fight anyone for them!
If you are a macadamia fan, then you need to try this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction.
Brownies have a special place in my heart. But so do cookies. So, what a better way to enjoy them both at the same time by making brookies!
With a cookie base for a base and a fudgy brownie top, these are the ultimate treat that will keep you coming back for more. Say ba-bye to your diet!
This recipe for brookies is my favorite. I does chocolate chips, but I prefer to chop up my own chocolate chunks instead.
7) Crinkle Cookies
In the UK, these are technically biscuits, but for all of our American friends, let’s call them cookies.
With the signature crinkle and icing sugar on top, these fudgy crinkle cookies are the perfect afternoon treat alongside your cup of tea or coffee.
I have found this BBC goodfood recipe to work the best. Extra fudgy and extra crinkle-y!
8) Skillet Cookie
A skillet cookie is just one humongous cookie baked in a cast iron skillet. I don’t own a skillet, so whenever I make a giant cookie I just use my round springform cake tin and it works just as well.
A giant cookie isn’t something that you’ll make every day (unless you really want to). I love making a big cookie for special occasions, like Mother’s Day and graduations. It’s the perfect dessert without going too over the top.
You can just use your favorite cookie recipe for this, and instead of dividing the cookie dough, just spread the whole thing in your cake tin.
Or, you can have a look at this recipe here.
9) Monster Cookies
Monster cookies are an absolute winner amongst kids. They are colorful, filled with M&M’s and are a perfect treat at kids parties.
If you are looking for a fun baking activity to do with your kids, they are guaranteed to love baking these cookies!
These are also packed with peanut butter and oats, so does that make them healthy-ish?
Anyway! If you want to give these a try, take a look at this recipe for soft, chewy monster cookies.
10) Fudgy Brownie Cookie
Many cookie recipes will either bake the recipe straight away or chill the dough for an hour before baking the cookies in batches.
After you have weighed each cookie dough ball equally, wrap them up individually – there’s a good reason for doing this which you will find out below!
I wrap my cookie dough balls with cling film – I know, not environmentally friendly at all. But I am trying to find other ways to do this without having to use up and throw away cling film each time.
