NFT: Forget politics. Let's talk COOKIES!

Klaatu : 7/12/2019 11:53 am
What's your favorite? Chocolate chip? Oatmeal? Snickerdoodles? Oreos? Danish Butter Cookies? Florentine Lace Cookies? Linzer Raspberry Cookies? Peanut Butter Blossoms (with a Hershey's Kiss in the center)? Sound off, cookie lovers!


Iíve always been a Milano man myself  
mfsd : 7/12/2019 11:55 am : link
double chocolate or orange chocolate are my favorites.
Donít have a favorite  
UConn4523 : 7/12/2019 11:56 am : link
but texture wise it needs to be crispy/harder. Really donít like soft cookies.
snickerdoodles are very nice  
MadPlaid : 7/12/2019 12:00 pm : link
I'm partial to gingerbread cookies. Oatmeal raisin is always good. Tried and true chocolate chip is a winner.
Chocolate chip is my favorite.

I prefer crispy.
The more chocolate the better

Other favorites - good fig filled cookies (Fig Newtons are OK but far, far, far from the best), oatmeal cookies are my long-time favorite, and good snickerdoodles are great, too.

Underscoring my usual position as outside the mainstream, I really don't care for chocolate chip cookies.

NOTHING still beats a really good chocolate chip cookie.
Here's a really random one for BBI but worth posting

If you're on the NY Thruway pretty much from the Plattekill rest stop to Albany, the oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip cookies at the Gray Mouse Farm booths outside (Under the Taste of NY tents) are the best cookies of all time.
While really more like cookie-sized cakes,  
g-baby : 7/12/2019 12:29 pm : link
Rainbow cookies are the best
For some reason I've been binging on Oreos lately  
Bill L : 7/12/2019 12:32 pm : link
It turns out that they have like a hundred flavors and every time a new one hits the shelf, I have to try it. A couple of weeks ago it was S'mores, last week latte, this week megastuff....
I'll probably get crapped on for this

But I really like coconut macaroons. Also, peanut butter cookies.

Agreed. I especially like them if they are hot, so that the chocolate is slightly melted and soft.

Double dark chocolate are the best. Black and white I like. However, on the west coast they are not available.

I like your style.
I don't eat cookies  
pjcas18 : 7/12/2019 1:45 pm : link
anymore and I was never a big sweets fan.

But, when I was a kid and I ate cookies my favorites were:

Store bought: chips ahoy. regular, original.

Home made: my mothers peanut blossoms, but if magic bars count as cookies they win in a landslide - those were my exception to not liking sweets.

Christmas was a month long event, my mother would make trays of christmas cookies and bring them to half the world.

Peanut blossoms, chocolate chip, anginettes, sugar cookies pressed into christmas shapes, snowballs (these cookies covered in confectioners sugar), etc. etc..

Oreo cookie  
Payasdaddy : 7/12/2019 1:56 pm : link
Has always been my favorite. Although a chewy chocolate chip is alway great
Underrated back in the day
Archway brand molasses or oatmeal cookies I loved. Used to eat the whole 8 cookie package and one time. Mmm!
I am going to gym. Then I am stopping at some bakery!

almost 2 1/2 hours, and only RUSS has excellent taste: coconut macaroons and peanut butter cookies.

I would also nominate my wife's large oatmeal cookies with chocolate and white chocolate chunks.

Is tremendous

The Kirkland brand combo pack (Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, White Choc Macadamia) is extremely underrated.

Great cookie at a very good price point

Man the chocolate chip in that pack is practically perfect

chocolate chip. My pet cookie peeve- when you end up with a f'ing raisin cookie cause it's not labeled and it looks like chocolate chip. Nowadays you've gotta be really careful- I went to a buffet recently when they had carob chip, sugarless chocolate chips, gluten free cc, low fat choco chip. disgusting
I love Pepperidge Farm milk chocolate macadamias.  
yatqb : 7/12/2019 6:59 pm : link
Double stuffed oreos ain't bad either...surprisingly good with beer!
Oatmeal raisin...  
section125 : 7/12/2019 7:42 pm : link
Mint Milano's are not bad...

Italian cookies from the bakery are the best.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip  
Tom in Kzoo : 7/12/2019 7:43 pm : link
Nothing better. cold milk, warm cookies..

boom.a good breakfast cookie to boot.

(Hey, I'm getting oatmeal,right?)
Some great cookie choices.  
Fred-in-Florida : 7/12/2019 7:43 pm : link
I probably would agree with almost all of them! But my favorite on is Oatmeal Raisin. Prefer it soft but I take a crispy one!

we had a Chinese bakery near our apartment that made the most amazing crumbly crisp almond cookies with a chocolate dollop in the center. They looked something like this:

The accidental raisin cookie grab when expecting a chocolate chip cookie has to be the biggest letdown in the cookie kingdom

Promotes segregation! No one is allowed on one side or the other, that is why Jerry got a stomachache when he ate the cookie!

I always feel bad for the guys in orange jumpsuits who don't have access to cookies. Amirite?
As far as mass produced cookies  
BestFeature : 7/13/2019 11:36 am : link
Two of my favorites are in the work vending machine. I'm glad I cut out sugar and carbs because I'd be 300 pounds. I'm talking about Milanos and Fudge Stripe. For my birthday I'll have one of the two, have resisted temptation for the first 6 months.
There's an Italian bakery near me that makes a cookie  
jgambrosio : 7/13/2019 11:49 am : link
Called Calabresi con Noci that is absolutely fantastic. Problem is I can't find anything online that resembles it. It's got no real formed shape, just kind of spooned onto a baking sheet it looks like, it's a chocolate cookie with walnuts mixed in and looks like it's dusted with sugar
