Lunchtime Poll: Cookie Monster Edition

Today we have some very Serious Business to discuss: Cookies!

I have a soft spot for some good old fashioned Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies, though I’ve heard the Trader Joe’s recipe is superior and I intend to test this the next time I get to a TJ’s. I also love oatmeal cookies with butterscotch chips instead of raisins, because fuck raisins, and this sugar cookie recipe is pretty amazing. My favorite, though, is a chocolate chunk coconut macadamia cookie that I found ages ago in one of my parents’ cookbooks, though I usually use walnuts instead of the macadamia nuts.

What’s your favorite cookie recipe? Or if you aren’t much of a baker, what are your favorite store-bought cookies?

Ricotta cookies are my favorite recipe b/c they are ridiculously easy to make. I also have a good one for peanut butter chocolate chip ones that are fantastic if I undercook them ever so slightly. I did the Tollhouse recipe from the back of the Nestle chips at Christmastime and Mr. qSS ate all but four, so they went over very well. I was always intimidated by baking, so it is only in the last two years or so that I’ve ventured into it.

Hands down my favorite are chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips. Though recently, I’ve been making vegan (and gluten-free) banana oatmeal cookies. The original recipe called for dates, which I promptly replaced with dark chocolate chips… because bananas and chocolate!
