    Since my favorite cookie changes with the seasons, I'll say for Fall and Winter, my favorite are my Thumbprint cookies.

  • Elena Rose  on  11/13/2016 at 1:06 PM

    I love love love Mexican wedding cookies

  • Kristjudy  on  11/13/2016 at 1:23 PM

    My favourite cookie is an old fashioned oatmeal raisin

  • MirandaAK  on  11/13/2016 at 1:59 PM

    I love these Orange-Cardamom Cookies. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/orange-cardamom-cookies-240927 They're a rolled-out cookie, and hold their shape really well. They taste better than a typical sugar cookie, though they are slightly more fragile. The combination of orange and cardamom is a favorite, but it's fun to mix and match different citrus and spices: lime and black pepper, grapefruit and star anise, orange and cinnamon..

  • AGENT99  on  11/13/2016 at 2:03 PM

    Right now, it's a chocolate toffee cookie.

  • rrobb  on  11/13/2016 at 2:18 PM

    A sugar cookie with a dollop of almond paste on top covered with dark chocolate.

  • gjelizabeth  on  11/13/2016 at 2:28 PM

    Snickerdoodles!

  • JulieG1002  on  11/13/2016 at 2:43 PM

    Triple ginger snaps are my favorite, with snickerdoodles a close second.

  • jr0717  on  11/13/2016 at 5:30 PM

    When I'm stuck without an impressive cookie idea, I always fallback on my mother's rainbow cookies. They always hit the mark - simple, delicious, and so pretty and vibrant!

  • percussion03  on  11/13/2016 at 5:57 PM

    Impossible to narrow down--depends on the mood! I have to give a nod, as a Midwesterner, to good old "monster" cookies. They have all the good stuff: oats, peanut butter, and chocolate!

  • sgump  on  11/13/2016 at 6:34 PM

    Oh, such a challenging question! I'm a fan of zaletti--the not-too-sweet Venetian polenta cookies with raisins or currants. David Lebovitz adapted a recipe from Carol Field's *Italian Baker* here: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/zaletti-italian-cornmeal-cookie-recipe/.

  • jaholz  on  11/13/2016 at 7:02 PM

    Molasses cookies

  • Amarie121  on  11/13/2016 at 7:03 PM

    Who doesn't love cookies?! For a quick and easy cookie, I like Amaretti cookies. (I use the recipes that do not have Amaretto.). Another almond-based favorite is, of course, macarons! I'm looking forward to reading and using this cookbook for my family.

  • ckbkcollector  on  11/13/2016 at 9:37 PM

  • juazella  on  11/13/2016 at 9:43 PM

    Gluten Free Girl's chocolate chip cookie recipe in American Classics is the best!

    Alton Brown's "The Chewy" chocolate chip cookies: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/the-chewy-recipe.html

  • nicolthepickle  on  11/14/2016 at 6:23 AM

    I love cookies and make a lot of them. I would say these Speculaas cookies from Eatthelove are one of my favourites. They're just the right amount of spicy and crisp. http://www.eatthelove.com/2012/12/speculaas/

  • jenniesb  on  11/14/2016 at 6:27 AM

    I love lime meltaways. I don't have a specific recipe - I usually just google it and go with the best one I see.

  • cookingforthefam  on  11/14/2016 at 8:01 AM

    My favorite cookies are chocolate crinkles.

  • jupflute  on  11/14/2016 at 8:09 AM

    It really depends on the day, but I really love an old recipe of apricot and white chocolate chip cookies I used to make.

  • Nancith  on  11/14/2016 at 8:17 AM

    Toffee bars from a recipe I clipped out of the newspaper decades ago. It's now our favorite family Christmas cookie.

  • annmartina  on  11/14/2016 at 8:41 AM

    Christina Tosi'a Milk Bar corn cookies. A terrific cookie. A huge hit when I bring them into work. Great with dried blueberries in them. She also suggests using them with ham and cheese. http://luckypeach.com/recipes/corn-cookie/

  • meggan  on  11/14/2016 at 8:42 AM

    Always fall back to toll-house chocolate chip cookies add a dash of milk and extra chips.

  • ljskop  on  11/14/2016 at 9:46 AM

    Snickerdoodles (from my English/Yankee grandmother) or biscotti (from my mother's, Italian, side of the family

  • eliza  on  11/14/2016 at 10:39 AM

    Scottish shortbread is my favourite.

  • sarahawker  on  11/14/2016 at 1:17 PM

    Dorie's World Peace cookies are amazing, but how can you choose between any? Oatmeal Raisin? Toll House? Shortbread? All of these....

  • Larkspur  on  11/14/2016 at 3:59 PM

    My favorite cookie that my MIL makes is cucidata But I like making roll out sugar cookies!

  • Teruska  on  11/14/2016 at 4:18 PM

    I love to eat chocolate chip cookies, Mexican wedding cookies, and almost anything with caramel. I like to make simple cookies with the nieces and nephews ~ their choice.

  • MsCalabash  on  11/14/2016 at 4:48 PM

    My favorite cookies are homemade sugar cookies decorated with royal icing. That crack when you bite into the icing, the not-too-sweet cookies, and all the fond memories that go with them.

  • lindaeatsherbooks  on  11/14/2016 at 6:55 PM

    My favourite cookie recipe is my mom-in-law's walnut crescent cookies.

  • armymum13  on  11/15/2016 at 10:51 AM

    Still searching for a "favorite" cookie.....I think everyone likes chocolate chip, crisp on the outside, gooey on the inside....the other one I have been making for yrs it the shortbread from The Best of Food & Wine 1988. I also keep up the tradition of making the spritz cookies at Christmas like grandma did (I inherited her cookie press) & sending them out to the kids, grandkids and friends.....
