12 Amazing Homemade Cookie Recipes
Looking for good (and easy) cookie recipes for your next party?
I love serving cookies on my dessert table at parties. Nothing looks sweeter than a plate piled high with ooey gooey cookies. Although I believe you can’t go wrong with classic chocolate chip cookies for kid’s parties, sometimes I do like to mix up my selection. (My cowboys and cookies dessert table is a prime example.) Here are some of the best cookie recipes from some of my favorite bloggers – including recipes for chai meringues, snickerdoodles, citrus doodles (did you know there was such a cookie?), fluffy sugar cookies, peppermint hot chocolate cookies, caramel oatmeal cookies, oatmeal scotchies, apple peanut butter cookies, strawberry cake mix cookies and more! Check all 12 of them out and tell me what you think!
1. Toffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies from A Little CLAIREification: These are delicious. You can also double the batch and freeze them easily so that they make the perfect cookie for serving at a party.
2. Snickerdoodle Recipe from Occasionally Crafty: Over the years she has perfected her recipe to create yummy, soft cookies covered with just the right amount of cinnamon and sugar.
3. Glazed Citrus Doodle Cookies from Wonky Wonderful: She says these are the citrus cookie love child of a snickerdoodle and a sugar cookie. LOL Love it.
