Is there anyone on the planet who isn’t’ a fan of the good old-fashioned cookie?
I’m not talking about the little program that tracks your movements and keystrokes on the Internet. I’m talking about the sweet treats that usually get dunked in milk and make everyone smile one they take their first bite. The popularity of this snack food/dessert treat has birthed literally dozens of different flavors and taste concoctions. Finding the best of the best seems like a tall order, but I was willing to step up to the cookie jar. Without further ado, the top 10 favorite cookies of all time.
Before you continue reading about the Favorite Cookies there is a special announcement we would like to share with you. Catalogs.com has negotiated special medicare rates for our vibrant community of seniors. If you are over the age of 60, you can head over to our Seniors Health Section which is full of information about medicare. All you need is your zip code and a few minutes of your time to potentially save 100s of dollars on your medicare bills.
Oatmeal cookies make the list of top 10 favorite cookies because of their simplicity. You aren’t going to be able to find many people anywhere in America, let alone the world who haven’t had a bit of a great oatmeal cookie. The best part about this kind is that you can make them hard or soft, and can fill them with raisins or other fruit to spice them up. Make sure you always have rolled oats on hand for baking, in case the urge to make a batch strikes late at night.
9. Sugar Cookies
Sugar cookies are another variety of the cookie family that is so popular because it is so simple to make and so easily found. Is there anyone who wouldn’t have these treats on this list?
8. Coconut Macaroons
This is the first snack on the list that isn’t all that simple to make, and in order to find the right kind of Macaroon you’re going to need to do a little investigating. Some people don’t even consider this a cookie, but it qualifies in our book.
7. Pepperidge Farm Milanos
If you are one of the few people that hasn’t sampled a Milano cookie, run don’t walk to your local grocery store and pick up a bag. This cookie, which is basically two butter cookies with chocolate crème sandwiched in the middle.
6. Caramel Delites
It’s hard to argue with a cookie that the Girl Scouts have featured as one of their go-to flavors for decades. Oddly enough, this is actually the second cookie on the list that has coconut in it. Before reading this, did you think that tropical fruit played such a large part in your favorite treats?
5. Thin Mints
The other super popular Girl Scout cookies taste that has been the top seller for as long as anyone can remember. There are few people who haven’t sampled this particular cookie and this taste has been so popular that several companies have tried their hands at their own version of the recipe.
Obviously there is one time of year when this particular cookie is the most popular but ginger snaps, which are basically just smaller versions of the Gingerbread men made around Christmastime are eaten in the summer, spring or fall. People can dress up their gingerbread cookies with all sorts of toppings such as icing, or redhots or chocolate if you want to have a sweets overload.
We’re coming down to the final three and I’m willing to bet you thought we forgot about this one. Basically a sugar cookie with some cinnamon to give it a sweet tang, these have been around for quite a while and fall quite easily into the “simple” category of cookies.
You didn’t really think we were going to forget about this cookie … did you? The Oreo cookie is one of the most popular cookie, let alone sandwich cookies in the entire world. The cookie is great plain but the company has recently been experimenting with making the treat that much better with ideas like covering them in chocolate.
1. Chocolate Chip
Popular Savings Offers
Was there any real doubt that number one on the list would be the Chocolate chip cookie. In America there may not be a dessert or snack food that is anywhere near as popular as this cookie.
