Just in time for the Holidays, The 10 Most Popular Cookie Recipes Ever on Chewing The Fat

Just in time for the Holidays, The 10 Most Popular Cookie Recipes Ever on Chewing The Fat

Just in time for holiday baking, here’s a post dedicated to the Cookie.  We’ve featured a lot of cookies in the past twelve years.  We have entire Hampton Classic posts with nothing but cookies, bars, and brownies.  You can use the search function and find all of those. Here we’ve collected 10 recipes that top all others on the blog.  Two of them are even gluten-free!  We have so many great bakers to thank for these recipes. Some of you may know them on a first-name basis.

Dorie Greenspan falls into that category. Joanne Chang of Boston’s Flour Bakery and Café is famous for re-creating famous treats for home bakers.  Matt Lewis and Renato Poliofito have built a “Baked” empire with recipes like numbers 6 and 10 on the popularity scale.  And some names will be entirely unfamiliar to you. However, you’re not likely to forget the name Kate Davis whose #1 Recipe for Brown Butter and Toffee Chocolate Chip cookies was discovered by Matt Martinez in Bon Appetit magazine.  My British cousin and his Austrian wife sent me 3 authentic Austrian cookie recipes which still occupy the #18 most popular recipes of any kind on Chewing the Fat—quite an accomplishment since we’re up to 860 of them!  And finally, a Nigerian American pastry chef named Yewande Komolate provided one of the two Gluten-Free cookie recipes on this post. Her Chewy Almond Macaroons are sensational.

But most of all, I have to thank the absolute number one baker of them all, my partner Andrew, who not only baked every one of these recipes but who, if I may be so bold, improved a couple of them quite a bit.  Here’s to Andrew! Here’s to Christmas!  Here’s to the Christmas Cookie, long may they be baked! Just click on the headline to get to the recipes…
