After using them to do some Christmas baking, I thought I’d tell y’all about my two favorite cookie recipe books!
I used to check them out repeatedly from the library to try new things, but my dad finally wound up buying them for me. Talk about an amazing gift that he knew I would use and love!!
The first of my favorite cookie cookbooks is called 1001 Cookie Recipes.
It’s chock full of tasty recipes, complete with indexes for types, ingredients and titles. I absolutely love it!
Want to know a couple of the goodies I have made from this book?
On page 54, you will find Banana Chip Bars. It’s one of my go to treats! I always add a dollop of peanut butter, because we love it, and sometimes simplify it by using self rising instead of all purpose and it’s accompanying ingredients.
Chocolate Refrigerator Cookies. For a really soft cookie like we prefer, I bake just 5-6 minutes. My kids loved decorating these for Christmas!
You can get your copy on Amazon here: 1001 Cookie Recipes
My other favorite recipe book is BH&G Ultimate Cookie Book.
It also has beautiful pictures, a detailed index using ingredients and titles and includes tips for baking better cookies.
A favorite from this book is banana split brownies from page 379. If you don’t want to make the icing from scratch, just get fresh or frozen strawberries with the pre-made cream cheese kind. This recipe is soooo good, though!

Oh, these look like such fun! I have a few random recipe books, but I really should find a good book of cookie recipes. Especially for all the season all goodies!

I didn’t even realize how useful this kind of book could be until I borrowed the first from the library the first time when I wanted to try different types of cookies.
