Alright, no poll, because I don't want anyone to bitch about how I left out certain brands.

What's your favorite cookie ?


I love Lebkuchen, a German Christmas cookie. The variety packs are just great.
Around Christmas, you can snatch them in the US at Trader Joe's.



So, what's it for you ?

I'd have to say lebkuchen too. My ex-wife's mother was straight from Germany and turned me onto them.

Homemade: Chocolate chip, no questions asked.

Store-bought: Oreo Double-Stuff, of course. Pure sugar at its finest!

Screw cookies. It's all about brownies.


But as far as cookies go, chocolate chip or macadamia and white. Homemade cookies always taste better than store-bought, too.

I recently found some cookies made by Bahlsen in a local store. The name of them is Hit and they are rather tastey. This is a German company but the product comes from Poland.

I've seen those in the local grocery and wondered if they were good. I'll have to try them, now.

any hot/melty chocolate chip cookie from the oven. you cannot get any better than that. any other cookie is not as good. thin mints (from the girl scouts) are a close second though, they are delicious.

Yup, called "Prince" over here, they used be called Chocoprince but that's probably politically incorrect these days (chocoprince=gay man).
But then again, everybody calls them chocoprince.

I also like a plain petit beurre by Lu.



Both made in Belgium by Lu/De Beukelaer.

Why so many store-bought cookies? I'll take freshly-made chocolate chip over any store-bought cookie.

To make a chocolate chip cookies yourself is a no brainer.

It's much harder to make good Lebkuchen or Prinzenrolle cookies.

I'd still take even the simplest of home-made cookies over the fanciest store-bought ones.

And how hard can it really be? Got any recipes (for me to give my wife )?

Homemade peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. Hot from the oven, of course. And with a rather cold glass of moo juice.

My wife makes some amazing Cowboy Cookies. They have a little bit of everything in them except for butterscotch. I hate butterscotch flavor. They are crispy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside.

Her recipe makes hundreds of them and for some reason she has a hard time scaling it down. So when she makes them it takes all of a saturday and there's enough for a few weeks.
