The 250 Best Cookie Recipes


Who doesn’t like cookies? I know I have to do a lot of baking for the kids schools (bake sales, Gameathon, Santa’s Workshop, etc.), and cookies also go over well. Plus cookies are great for coffee breaks, snacks, and desserts. In The 250 Best Cookie Recipes, there are over 250 cookie recipes to pick from. There is literally something for everyone in there. The majority of the recipes can be done by even the most novice baker. The recipes are also broken down, so they are easy to find: Drop Cookies, Hand Shaped Cookies, Sliced Cookies, Biscotti, Sandwich Cookies, No Bake Cookies, and Holiday Cookies. There are also helpful baking tips sprinkled throughout the book. The book even goes over the correct way to melt chocolate, storage methods, and even has a troubleshooting section!

I highly recommend The 250 Best Cookie Recipes!

Scarecrow Cookies

I can’t take credit for these cookies (Thanks Mandy for the idea!), but they are super cute and even easier to make.

Scarecrow Cookies
  • Sugar Cookies
  • White frosting
  • Sugar wafers
  • Candy corn
  • M & M's
  • Bran cereal
  • Licorice Strings
  1. Frost the top of each cookie.
  2. Cut a sugar wafer in half. Add a dollop of frosting to the top edge of the cookie and stick a wafer half to it for a hat top. Place a whole sugar wafer just below the hat top for a brim. Add a small licorice piece for hat trim. Press pieces of the bran cereal into the frosting around the hat (now these are just as cute without the hair too). For the face, press on a candy corn nose, M & M eyes, and a licorice string mouth.
