If the internet is telling the truth, Tuesday is National Homemade Cookie Day! Surely the internet wouldn’t lie about something as important as that. We get to take this day off work, right?
Clearly, I haven’t made enough homemade cookies in the last six months. Let’s make sure you don’t have that problem. Here are some of my favorite homemade cookie recipes. They’re all pretty idiot proof. I mean, I made them, and what do I know?
White chocolate cranberry macadamia nut cookies have a long name, but as long as you eat one cookie for each word in the title, you’ll be a happy human. Sweet, buttery, and just a tiny bit tart, these cookies combine the best of the islands and the mainland.
Cheater shortbread is so fast and so easy, anyone can make it! And everyone should eat it. Straight up or as a crust for something creamy, it’s gonna be awesome!
Giant chocolate chip cookies are pretty much as awesome as they sound. It’s my favorite chocolate chip cookie at the moment, and since it’s made with melted butter, there’s no waiting around. Cookies in your face in under 30 minutes? Yes, please!
Scottish shortbread is the real deal. The best thing to come out of Scotland since Ewan McGregor! Simple joy!
Make your own cookies at home this week. I promise, the smell alone is worth it. And you can eat as much cookie dough as you want. I won’t judge you if you don’t judge me. Homemade cookies are where it’s at, kids. What could be awesomer?
