There are many different types of cookies out there that can be baked with a number of different types of ingredients. It all depends on how sweet you want your cookies or what types of textures and additions you are going to put in them. When deciding on what types of cookies to make, think about the occasion these cookies will be served and who will be eating them. If there will be a number of kids present where these types of cookies are served, the sweet cookies are usually the best choice. If the party is more adult, types of cookies with other ingredients that are more flavorful and less sweet might be the best option. Once you have determined who will be eating your cookies, peruse this list below about types of cookies and choose the one that might be best for your party.
- Sugar Cookies This is one of the easiest types of cookies to make. You simply cut sugar cookie dough, place it in a pan and bake it for a proper amount of time. These types of cookie are sweet and simple and loved by many.
- Chocolate Chip Cookies One of the most popular types of cookies, chocolate chip cookies come in many different forms and fashions, as they are basically sugar cookies with chocolate chips added to them. Now here's where it gets at least somewhat original: These chocolate chips can be sweet or semi-sweet, white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate or any other kind of chocolate. This will change the flavor of this type of cookie with each variation that is made.
- Peanut Butter Cookies Another type of cookie can use peanut butter instead of chocolate chips, making it a sweet but peanut butter flavored cookie to eat. This can be done in the same way a chocolate chip cookie is made, which entails simply adding chunks of peanut butter or peanut butter itself (and some extra sugar) to the dough before it is baked.
- Oatmeal Cookies Oatmeal cookies are a little different from all the other types of cookies on this list int he sense that they are made from oatmeal batter, allowing them to be a bit more healthy then other types of cookies. They are not as sweet and take more time to chew and are not one of the favorite types of cookies to make for groups of kids. Be forewarned.
