The Top Ten

Cookies are really a reward for being alive. Think of the best cookies you've eaten and why you've eaten them. They are a perfect pick-me-up with coffee, are the best lunchbox treats, and enhance any celebration, from a child's birthday party to a retirement party. These are my favorite cookies; they'll soon become yours too!

The best M & M cookies are soft and chewy, with a wonderful brown sugar flavor. The contrast between the chewy cookie and the crisp candies is fabulous. No wonder kids love this cookie so much!

3. My Mom's Oatmeal Cookies

This is another fabulous old fashioned recipe. The combination of butter and oil makes a really chewy cookie that manages to be tender too. And the flavor can't be beat. Yum.

This recipe is really easy to make and special too. I especially love the cookies frosted with plain vanilla buttercream frosting, but chocolate frosting is fabulous.

These delicious, thin and crisp brown sugar cookies are wrapped around a chocolate mint. The mint melts to create a chocolate center. Yet the cookies still manage to be tender and chewy! Wow.

This classic cookie recipe is slightly different from all the others out there. You must chill the dough before baking. The cookies are tender and perfect with the chocolate kiss on top.
