  • Orange madeleines

    Madeleines are the perfect combination of cookie and cake, and they're easy to make, but fancy to serve. This recipe has a refreshing hint of orange, which goes beautifully with a little chocolate, and it can also be used to make mini donuts!

  • Chocolate chip macaroons

    Lisa Prater, author of our <a href="http://www.livingthecountrylife.com/blogs/lisas-kitchen/" target="new">Lisa's Kitchen</a> recipe blog, recently unearthed her Aunt Dollie's recipe file. "I decided the first thing I would make was her macaroons," she says. "It was a good choice!" The moist, tender coconut cookies are even better with chocolate chips.

  • Ginger-molasses cookies

    These cookies have the spice and bite of gingersnaps, but they're soft and chewy, more like a peanut butter cookie. They're delicious dunked in coffee or hot chocolate, and the dough freezes well, too. Give them a try!

  • Snickerdoodles

    When Lisa came across her Grandma Foust's snickerdoodles recipe, she had to make them right away. These simple cookies have a crunch on the outside, but are soft and chewy inside. "I was instantly 10 years old, standing in my grandma's kitchen," Lisa says. "The flavor was exactly the same, and it just made me miss her so much. I was happy to tell my boys they were eating G.G.'s cookies!"

  • Chocolate peanut butter chip cookies

    Lisa likes soft, chewy, almost doughy cookies, and her husband wants his thin and crisp. These are the first cookies that made them both completely and totally happy. They're thin and crispy like Jayson likes, but also super chocolatey, which in Lisa's book trumps soft and chewy.

  • Pineapple chocolate chip cookies

    When Lisa's youngest son, Will, spent the afternoon with Grandma, he grabbed a can of pineapple out of the pantry and said he thought pineapple cookies sounded good. They came up with a delicious cookie, complete with chocolate chips and walnuts.

  • Magic cookie bars

    OK, so this os a bar, not a cookie, but it has "cookie" in its name, and it's too good not to include! They're easier to make than you think, and you can customize them by adding dark chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, nuts, or whatever you like! Get the recipe:
