Is there a cookie that really beats chocolate chip?

Asked by toleostoy (282points) March 4th, 2009

You may grow tired of Chips Ahoy or something like that, and macadamia nut cookies are pretty good, but is there anything better than the classic?

Chocolate chocolate chip!

mangeons's avatar

Yes, the peanut butter cookies with a hershey kiss in the middle. Mmm-mm, good, with more possibilities than Cambpell’s Chicken Noodle Soup! :)

aprilsimnel's avatar

I’ll bet a rocky-road type cookie would taste pretty darn good!

Oatmeal Raisin.
The ones you get from Costco’s bakery must contain crack.

My very favorite is excellent shortbread, which I prefer to chocolate chip.

After that, homemade oatmeal cookies.

Then, homemade peanut butter cookies.

Then, chocolate chip cookies.

And Snicker Cookies (with actual chunks of Snicker bar in them) Yum!

marinelife's avatar

Darn it. Now I want a fresh baked cookie!

AstroChuck's avatar

Ooh. I forgot anisette cookies! Mmmm.

marinelife's avatar

@toleostoy Have you ever had classic chocolate chip made as brownies? Yum.

My favorites are:
white chocolate macadamia nut cookies
oatmeal chocolate and peanut butter cookies
and of course my nonna’s biscotti <3

I make a pretty mean snickerdoodle, everyone thinks they’re heaven, but I don’t really like them that much. I once made 4 dozen for the 6th grade school picnic, and they were all eaten. I also made them for my teachers once, and they loved them. I also make a pretty mean carmelized apple on the stove, I’ve heard. I’m great with sweet things, but I don’t really like the things I bake most of the time. Kinda ironic, eh? ; )

Yes there is. Macadamia Nut cookies with chocolate chips in them. And Double Stuff Oreos are pretty darn good also.

Chocolate duo with walnuts from panera. (Chocolate cookie with white chocolate chips and walnuts sooo good.)

DrasticDreamer's avatar

My favorite cookies are straight-out-of-the-oven sugar/snickerdoodle cookies. Nothing beats those. After that, it’s macadamia for me.

casheroo's avatar

I love Snickerdoodles! But, I can only eat so many. I can eat an infinite amount of chocolate chip cookies though. I just demolished a bag of Trader Joe’s bakery cookies in two days :(

essieness's avatar

Nope. Chocolate chip is the ultimate. Especially when they’re warm and gooey… ok, I need to bake some now

mangeons's avatar

@essieness Chocolate chip cookies are pure HEAVEN when they are warm and soft and the chocolate chips are melty and gooey. :P

cak's avatar

I love a well-made Shortbread cookie! Yum. Heath Bar cookies are great, and then Chocolate Chip cookies – they must have pecans in them!

loser's avatar

Peanut butter with chocolate chips!

mangeons's avatar

Heath Bars=Heaven. ♥

Blondesjon's avatar

jonsblond’s peanut butter/chocolate chip cookies.

she does put a little crack in them

mangeons's avatar

pb/chocolate chip are goooood. :d

AstroChuck's avatar

I forgot about this cookie.

cak's avatar

@mangeons – you speak the truth….heath bars=Heaven!

ubersiren's avatar

No! Why on God’s green Earth would you ask that!?!?

VS's avatar

You have obviously never tasted my soon-to-be-famous Snickerdoodles. They are, in fact, already famous here in my neighborhood!

Almond Cookies form the Chinese Restaurant and the Italian ones with the cherry in the middle!

Very Filling

My daughter just made me really, truly delicious chocolate chip cookies. Homemade, with a bunch of her secrets. Delicious. If you want to know how, I believe she has the recipe on her blog: Enjoy!

Yes, it’s there: Nov. 30 2008: Dude Food.

cdwccrn's avatar

Give me chocolate chip anyday.

AstroChuck's avatar

Would you guys just stop! I’ve gained five pounds just reading this thread!

wundayatta's avatar

I can never find heath bars where I work. What is wrong with these people? Don’t they know? It’s always three musketeers, and snickers and twix and never the best mass produced candy on this planet. Never!

Anyway, it’s nice to see some fellow fanatics. Surprising, too.

NaturalMineralWater's avatar

Potato cookies are way better.

cak's avatar

@NaturalMineralWater – OK, I’ll bite. Potato cookies? my husband’s grandma makes potato candy…a little too sweet for me. I wonder if it’s the same concept.

cookieman's avatar


And those who said otherwise are now dead to me.

at least until the next thread;^ )

NaturalMineralWater's avatar

@cak I do believe it is the same. We just call them cookies. =) Roll them out.. spread peanut butter or jam or whatever you want the filling to be on it… then roll em up and slice em… good stuff

cak's avatar

@NaturalMineralWater – I think he’ll do the happy dance after I tell him someone else likes potato cookies/candy. I truly never heard of it before him…now there’s two people. darn, that means I have to stop telling how odd he is…wait, I can still think of a few reasons. :)

NaturalMineralWater's avatar

@cak HA! I learned of potato candy/cookies from my wife’s grandmother. I wonder what the origin of this recipe is. xD

mangeons's avatar

I just grab a Heath bar occasionally at the grocery store, they also have Heath Ice Cream at the Baskin Robins here, I have yet to try that too. I feel so bad for you, @daloon! :D ((pats on back reasurringly))

mangeons's avatar

Oh yeah, and those Peanut Butter Patties Girl Scout cookies are heaven too, I’ve eaten 2 boxes alone before! cough COULD. Could.

ubersiren's avatar

@mangeons : Edy’s has a special edition ice cream out now with those peanut butter girl scout cookies in it. It’s the most delicious way to stop up your arteries I’ve found so far.

cookieman's avatar

girl scouts are evil

AstroChuck's avatar

My daughter’s a Girl Scout. I hadn’t realized that about her. Thanks for letting me know.

bythebay's avatar

@AstroChuck: You didn’t know Girl Scouts were evil? What, were you raised by badgers?

Bluefreedom's avatar

@bythebay. How about Brownies? They’re an offshoot of Girl Scouts or something right? Are they evil too? :-)

bythebay's avatar

@Bluefreedom:Girl Scouts, Brownies, Blue Jays…all evil protagonists of joy & cookies.

tiffyandthewall's avatar

i’ve always been more of an oreo girl than chips ahoy, but as for ‘classic’ cookie types that everyone makes…hm. i really love peanut butter cookies. they kind of rival chocolate chip for first place on my list.

wundayatta's avatar

excuse me, but I was raised by badgers and I know girlscouts are evil. In the future, please refrain from casting aspersions on the morals of badgers. As to wombats…

bythebay's avatar

And those freakin’ muskrats…

wundayatta's avatar

Yes. Well. Muskrats!

bythebay's avatar

I suppose they’re a step above Nutria

wundayatta's avatar

ok. You know I like dancing around the shores of the sewage treatment plant as much as anyone. But I draw the line at putting my paw in!

Mud cookies are not exactly my favorite, although it does depend on the kind of mud we’re using.

mangeons's avatar

@ubersiren I NEED SOME. xD

bythebay's avatar

@daloon: hey, if you were raised by badgers, too…is there a chance you & AC are related?

wundayatta's avatar

If you get real close, I’ll whisper a secret in your ear…. no, closer….


bythebay's avatar

AC didn’t mention CC Cookies in his answer

wundayatta's avatar

Hey! Look over there! Is that an ostrich?

bythebay's avatar

No, you dork, it’s a chupacabra. ;P

wundayatta's avatar

Doh! I knew that! Brain fart. Excuse me while I go clean up.

zenele's avatar

For me, anything peanut butter.
