Apple-Cinnamon Cereal Snickerdoodles
Apple Jacks has always been one of our editor-in-chief Brian Hart Hoffman’s favorite cereals. He ate it for breakfast most mornings growing up, and as an adult, he’s made it the official treat of his birthday—the only day of the year when he eats as many bowls as he wants. With crushed cereal in the dough and a Cereal Milk Glaze, these chewy cookies are an ode to those birthday treats, but we recommend making them as often as you crave them!
Whiskey and Rye Cookies
With a splash of whiskey in the dough, consider this recipe the adventurous, grown-up version of a chocolate chip cookie. The rye flour brings earthy notes, and milk chocolate pieces round out the smoky whiskey with sweetness.
Oatmeal Creme Sandwich Cookies
Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies were hands down Brian’s favorite childhood snack. To this day, they’re one of his road trip essentials. Bigger and better than store-bought but just as nostalgia-inducing, these jumbo oatmeal cream pie cookies prove that you can never have too much of a good thing.
Sprinkle Sugar Cookie
When it comes to celebrations, it’s go big or go home. Packed with rainbow sprinkles and baked in a 9-inch springform pan, this giant cookie is birthday party-ready.
Chocolate Chip Graham Sandwich Cookies
Every time our editor-in-chief spent the night with his grandparents, his grandmother served him a bowl of graham crackers broken into pieces with milk poured on top, cereal style. Made with graham flour and honey, our cover star recipe was inspired by those flavor profiles and Brian’s love of a big ole chocolate chip cookie. The rich Vanilla Buttercream filling stands in for the milk in this epic sandwich cookie.
Our Best Skillet Cookie
When those weeknight cravings hit, this sweet and simple recipe will be there for you. With melted chocolate, old-fashioned oats, and rich peanut butter, this is the ultimate indulgent treat.
To give you a taste of the game-changing recipes in the book, we’re sharing a favorite of our editor-in-chief! Our Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies taste just like the PB&J sandwiches of your childhood (and are just as nostalgia-inducing), but now in cookie form! With creamy Peanut Butter Mousse and grape jelly layered between two chewy peanut butter cookies, these sandwich cookies are so indulgent, you won’t be able to have just one.
