Top 10 Cookies for the Holidays!
Many things come to mind when thinking about the Holidays, but some of the greatest and most tasty things are cookies! Here are the definitive best cookies to enjoy this holiday season!
Number 10: Biscotti
Raise your hand if you've ever craved a biscotti cookie... nobody has! These cookies don't taste bad, they just aren't too memorable. Maybe it's because they are SUPER crumbly, or maybe it's the weird stick shape. Either way, biscotti cookies are the definition of "eh".
Number 9: Gingersnaps
There aren't many cookies that represent the holidays better than gingersnaps. The problem with gingersnaps is that it is hard to eat more than a couple because the spice of the ginger can be overpowering! Gingersnaps are good, but make sure to thoroughly douse them in milk first!!
Number 8: Peanut Butter Cookies
Peanut butter cookies must have been invented to sell more water because they're so dry most of the time! This is another cookie that is better enjoyed dipped in milk. Any peanut butter lover will enjoy the taste of these!
Number 7: Molasses Cookies
An underrated cookie for sure. These cookies are very soft and tasty! Think of a gingersnap without the snap. Although some might prefer a sugar cookie more, give molasses cookies a try!
Number 6: Chips Ahoy!
Although these are technically chocolate chip cookies, it can be argued that Chips Ahoy! are their own type. These cookies are very crumbly but also very tasty. It can be very easy to scarf down an entire package of these fun-sized cookies, so beware of being alone with these!

Number 3: Sugar Cookies
These cookies have definitely stood the test of time. These prove that cookies don't need any fancy ingredients to be good!

Number 1.5: Chocolate Chip Cookies
The all-time classic! Although everyone has their preferences, most people can come together and say this cookie is amazing. When they're fresh, they are wonderfully warm and gooey. When they have cooled, they have the right amount of chewiness and crunchiness. It doesn't matter when you eat these, because they'll always be good!
