When it comes to cookies, there is two sides you can be on, the soft and chewy or then thin and crispy side. Me personally, I love the thicker and soft cookies that are chewy. These old-fashioned oatmeal chocolate chip cookies come out chewy and stay chewy for days after you make them. The cookies are packed with chocolate chips and rolled oats (doesn't that make these healthy). The cookies are extremely simple to prepare and make in minutes. I am not a huge sweets person, but I love these cookies!!
Here in Minnesota, it seems like every barbecue or party, you will always see some type of bars on the table. They are very easy to make and are typically delicious. These chocolate mud hen bars don't have the best sounding name but they come tasting really good. They are pretty much a s'more type bar that has a cookie crust with walnuts, chocolate and marshmallows topped with a brown sugar meringue. The bars some out chewy and sweet.
The shortbread cookie is one of most versatile cookies out there. Shortbread cookies are found all over the world, a slightly difference in the preparation they all have that rich butter flavor in common. In these Hawaiian nut cookies, is the standard rich flavor from the butter along with the sweetness from the sugars and coconut flakes that goes great with the great crunch from the macadamia nuts. The recipe takes well under 30 minutes from start to finish and you will end up with 3 dozen moist and chewy cookies that your friends and family will love.
These Macadamia espresso cookies are crisp around the edges but soft and gooey in the middle packed with espresso and nut flavors.

They are a great grown up cookie to make that go great with a cup of coffee or milk.

Then finished off with a dusting of powdered sugar. Check out the recipe below in this post.
