Chocolate Ginger Bliss Cookie Recipe
Trail mix is added to these cookies for a mixture of dried fuit, chocolate, nuts, and ginger.
Chocolate Pistachio Biscotti Recipe
Biscotti means "twice baked" in Italian. First you form the crumbly dough into one stiff mass and bake it whole. Then you let it cool, slice it, and bake it again at a lower temperature. That’s what gives biscotti an almost crackerlike quality, which goes especially well with coffee. This triple-chocolate double-baked treat is dipped in a dark chocolate coating with sprinkles on top. Dip it in your coffee and then pop it in your mouth.
Coffee Shortbread Cookie Recipe
Serve these cookies as a morning treat at a meeting or gathering.

Maple Bacon Cookie Recipe
Even though we know it’s not the most nutritious choice, we’ve been known to sneak cookies for breakfast. This cookie was an attempt to legitimize that surreptitious early-morning dessert eating. Bacon and maple syrup are a classic pairing, and we were happy to discover that they also work and play well with others in a chocolate chip cookie. We don’t call for any particular style of bacon — use your favorite type or experiment.
Orange Stir 'n' Drop Cookie Recipe
A recipe so simple it’s the perfect first step for kids to start baking on their own. Stamping the cookies with a glass is a task even the tiniest hands can accomplish.
Scoops of Rocky Road Cookie Recipe
We love taking easily recognizable dishes and turning them into something else with the same flavors — hence a cookie that tastes like a scoop of ice cream. You need to plan ahead to make these, because the dough chills for at least eight hours.

The confetti cookie combines the technique of a snickerdoodle (cream of tartar makes all the difference in telling an average cookie apart from a snickerdoodle-inspired one) with the flavors of Funfetti cake mix.
