Easy and Delicious Cookies For Any Occasion and of All Varieties. From Chocolate Chip to Snickerdoodles, and From Seasonal to Holiday – We Got You Covered in the Cookie Department.
Did you Know?
Did you know the chocolate chip cookie is the most popular kind of cookie in America?
Just in the United Stated 7 BILLION chocolate chips are consumed each year. If all those chips were used in cookies that would equal about 19.2 million cookies per day.
Even though the chocolate chip cookie is the most popular in the US these are still so many delicious cookies to be made and eaten. I generally like to think of them falling into one of 3 categories: Drop, Rolled + Slice & Bake Cookies.
Drop Cookies Tips
- Drop cookies are often flavored with some type of candy or nut. Chocolate Chips, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, chopped candy bar. Chopped pecan or walnuts are also popular.
- Freezing Drop cookie Dough: Scoop the dough balls onto a lined cookie sheet. Flash freeze by placing them in the freezer for a couple of hours until frozen. Transfer to a freezer safe storage container. Label and freeze for up to 3 months
- Baked cookies can generally be stored in an airtight container for several days or in the freezer for a few months.
Cut Out Cookies
- Sugar cookies and even gingerbread cutouts are often decorated with frosting, sprinkles and other candies. There are so many delicious frosting to choose from:
- Freezing the dough: Divide the dough into 3 or 4 sections. Roll each section into a disc making sure it is as thick as the recipe states. Wrap each disc with plastic wrap and then wrap them all together in aluminum foil. Label and freeze for up to 3 months.Thaw before making your cut outs.
Storage: If frosted allow the frosting to set before storing. Store in an airtight container for up to a week. Be sure to separate layers with wax or parchment paper. Placing a piece of white bread in the container will help keep them soft. For freezing separate layers and store in a freezer safe container for 2-3 months
Slice + Bake Cookies
- To add sugar sprinkles or other colorful sprinkles, spritz the sliced dough with water, add the sprinkles and gently press them into the dough then bake.
- You can also add a chocolate drizzle, a dusting of powdered sugar after the cookies have been baked.
- Freezing the dough: Roll the dough into a log. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and then again with foil. Label and freeze for up to 6 months. Thaw before slicing.
- Storage: Once the cookies are cooled they can be stored in an airtight container for several days or frozen for a few months.
