Fresh goat cheese manages to be both mild and distinctive. It’s a team player. In creating these cookies, I took advantage of the cheese’s affinity for herbs and spices — there’s sea salt, cracked pepper and snipped chives in the dough. The dough has no leavening, yet it has the look and even the feel of biscuit dough. Once baked, the tender cookies have layers, just as there are in the best biscuits.I leave it to you to enjoy these with cheese’s other best friend: wine. The cookies are nice with champagne or white wine as an aperitif. Alternatively, they’re great alongside soup.A word on the cheese and chives: The best cheese for these cookies is a soft, mashable fresh goat cheese, often sold under its French name, chèvre. Chives are my first choice, but if you can’t find them, you can use the pale green parts of slender scallions or even the scallions themselves. Recipe excerpted from Dorie Greenspan’s newest cookbook Dorie’s Cookies. Click here to purchase your own copy.

Iranian Rice Cookies
This recipe pays homage to the humble rice grain. It's such a wonderful, light flavor and the rice flour is interesting to work with if you've never used it before.

Belgium may be more well known in the United States for its waffles, but I recently discovered this wonderful spread that originates from there called Biscoff Cookie Spread, which works great in an oatmeal cookie recipe.

In my house, baking cookies was a cutthroat competition among siblings, with my mother presiding, Iron Chef style, with one baby perched on her hip and the other clamped to her knee. Our approaches varied. Mary increased the sugar in an attempt to up the crunch. Patrick (ever the psycho perfectionist) altered the recipe and portion size teaspoon by teaspoon in pursuit of a product with Mom's thin and crispy edges. Bill made his backward, just to act rad. It was never my intention to upstage your cookies, Mom — but you should know that I've never claimed a victory as great as when you tasted your first Babycakes NYC cookie and said: "These are better than mine." Slather an exceedingly generous dollop of your favorite frosting between two of these cookies and you've got your newest addiction, the Babycakes NYC cookie sandwich. Try freezing them.

Have you been eating twice as much chocolate now that studies have shown conclusively that this miraculous bean is actually good for you? It’s certainly more appealing than gulping down a $7 wheatgrass shot with the rest of the aerobics squad at the health-food store. Here, then, is BabyCakes NYC’s ode to cocoa: A tried-and-true chocolate-worshiping recipe with crunchy edges and a soft, chewy center that will put you in antioxidant overdrive. Bonus tip: If you add minced fresh mint to the dough, the cookies taste just like Girl Scout Thin Mints! So here’s to putting those overachieving little nerdlettes out of business. (Oh, relax. Love, love you gals!)

Peppermint Snowball Cookies
These cookies have been a favorite of mine since childhood; I first learned to make them using the Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book. I’ve adapted the recipe slightly over the years but these cookies remain a holiday tradition in my home. They’re deliciously sweet and minty on their own, but I like them even better dunked into a warm mug of cocoa.Click here for more of our best cookie recipes.
