Popular Cookie Types

Having some trouble deciding on which type of cookie you’re in the mood to bake? Here’s a list of some of the most popular cookie types out there to get you started.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

The most iconic and classic of all cookie types, the chocolate chip cookie is a perfect blend of sweetness from the cookie and richness from the chocolate chips.

Sugar Cookies

Renowned for its mixture of sweet and buttery flavors, the sugar cookie is great on its own or with added frosting and/or sprinkles.

Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are one of the simplest types of cookies to make: With just sugar, peanut butter, and eggs, you can make a salty-sweet treat!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal raisin cookies may not be for everyone, but that doesn’t stop them from being one of the most iconic cookie types out there. With their distinctive texture and a hint of cinnamon, they’re a worthy inclusion here.

Shortbread Cookies

Shortbread cookies boast a wonderful mixture of sweet and buttery flavors that become even more pronounced with added powdered sugar or even a touch of buttercream frosting.

Gingerbread Cookies

While gingerbread cookies are most commonly associated with the holidays, their unique combination of molasses, brown sugar and ginger is a delicious treat all year round.

Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodles are the perfect cookies for any cinnamon-lovers out there. While other cookies feature hints of cinnamon, the snickerdoodle proudly puts it front and center.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

If normal chocolate chip cookies just don’t pack in enough chocolate flavor for you, then the double chocolate chip cookie might be exactly what you’re looking for.


These French morsels combine a soft, chewy interior with a lightly crisp shell to create a textural experience all their own. Macarons are also often made in a variety of eye-catching colors that indicate their flavor.


The deceptively small list of ingredients for meringue cookies (egg whites and powdered sugar) may cause some to misjudge just how much flavor each one holds. Both sweet and airy, these cookies are a popular choice for a very good reason.
