Cookie Recipes

100+ Best Cookie Recipes. Chef Tested & Fan Approved.

As a professional chef and baker, I’ve made my share of cookie recipes over the years. Whether it’s my Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies, easy 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter CookiesBest Ever Oatmeal Cookies, I have you covered with tips and techniques for perfect cookies every time. You can even use my ultimate Crazy Cookie Dough recipe to use one dough to make endless possibilities!

Top Tips for your Cookies:

  • Aging your Dough I age my dough 3 to 5 days in advance because aging your dough over time helps develop more flavor and gives a lovely texture to your cookies.
  • Chilling your Dough Chilling your dough helps keep your cookies from spreading while baking.
  • Can I use Egg Substitutes in cookie recipes? YES! I have an egg substitute chart you can use for most of my recipes.
