Revamp your recipe collection with unique standouts like our sour cherry linzers or sweet, salty olive and strawberry biscotti. We didn’t slack on the nostalgia either. From chocolate chip cookies to jammy thumbprints, our roundup covers all the bases. Whether you’re pairing them with milk, coffee, or a cocktail, these cookies offer the simple comfort you’ve been waiting for.

  1. Sour Cherry Shortbread Linzer Cookies

These are the best sandwich cookies you’ll make this summer. A tiny bit of citric acid in the cookie dough creates a zesty sour cherry flavor, which balances out the buttery shortbread cookies.

The candied olives play the salty juxtaposition to the sugary strawberries in these crunchy twice-baked treats. Candying the olives and strawberries before baking protects their vibrant color during the baking process.

3. Palmiers with Vanilla Bean, Pecan, and Cardamom  

Palmiers might just be the perfect cookie: crisp, buttery layers of puff pastry encased in caramelized sugar. It’s hard to improve on something so classically perfect, but we think our version with cardamom, pecans, and vanilla bean comes pretty close.

4. Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Think of this as the elevated, from-scratch version of the Original Nestlé Toll House treat. If you’re a “the bigger, the better” kind of baker, triple up on those scoops for our oversized version.

5. Lavender Sandwich Cookies with Lemon Curd Filling

The tangy lemon curd pairs beautifully with the lavender. Instead of royal icing, the buttery cookies are dusted with powdered sugar for a hint of sweetness. Prepare this recipe over the course of two days to break up the workload and ensure the dough and curd are well-chilled before baking and assembling.
