Quick Tips!

A few quick tips for each flavor before we get baking:

  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: There’s no need to press down on the cookie dough balls before baking. Just scoop and bake!
  • Peanut Butter: Before baking, use a long pronged fork to flatten each cookie dough ball slightly, then turn the fork going the opposite direction and flatten just slightly again. This will create that classic criss cross pattern on the peanut butter cookies as they bake.
  • Oatmeal Cranberry Pecan: Gently press down with your hand to flatten each ball of cookie dough slightly before baking. If desired, sprinkle each cookie with a little flaky sea salt right baking for a fabulous sweet and salty flavor.
  • White Chocolate Macadamia Nut: Press down gently with your hand to flatten each ball of cookie dough slightly before baking.
  • Monster Cookies: Before baking, gently press down with your hand to flatten each ball of cookie dough slightly.
  • Snickerdoodle: With the cinnamon and sugar mix-ins recommended, combine them first and then just mix half of the cinnamon sugar mixture into the cookie dough. Reserve the other half to roll the cookie dough balls in before placing them on the cookie sheet to bake. No need to press down on the cookie dough balls before baking.
  • Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: Gently press down with your hand to flatten each ball of cookie dough slightly before baking.

How to Mix Flavors and Bake

Once you have your dough divided into separate mixing bowls, add the mix-ins for each flavor and combine. You can use a spoon or rubber spatula, but I’ve found that clean, dry hands work best at blending the dry ingredients with the dough.

After your mix-ins and dough are well combined, scoop dough onto the parchment-lined cookie sheets a few inches apart. Garnish each cookie dough scoop with additional toppings for that flavor, if desired.

Get the Scoop!

If you’re making small cookies, scoop 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie. Scoop 2 tablespoons dough per cookie for medium cookies. To make large cookies, scoop 3 tablespoons of dough per cookie. My favorite cookie scoop set makes it easy.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, rotating cookie sheets halfway through, until cookies are starting to crisp around the edges are just set on top. Try not to over-bake them if you want them to be chewy.

Finally, remove cookies from the oven and let them cool on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Let cool completely and enjoy!

How to Store Leftover Cookies

Store leftovers in an airtight container on the counter for up to five days. Or freeze in a freezer safe container for up to three months.

    1. Hi Lindsay! Yes, it freezes so great! You can freeze the dough all together or already divided into balls. If you freeze the dough all together, just let it defrost in the refrigerator before scooping into balls. If frozen into balls, you can bake them from frozen. Enjoy!

      1. Hi Darian! Absolutely, you can make the dough up to 5 days in advance and just store it, tightly wrapped, in the refrigerator. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

  1. Hi there, could you possibly provide measurements for this recipe in grams please? I would love to try it but cannot convert I’m afraid.
    Thank you very much 🙂

      1. Hello Meagan,
        I love you basic cookie dough!
        I was looking for something I could add my own touch to make savory cookie cups.
        I also reduced the sugar half the two sugars and changed them out for 1/2 cup each applesauce and maple sryup and 3 tbsp of gr. flax in place of 1 egg.
        To 1/7 of the dough my add ins were
        1/8 gr. rosemary
        1/8 gr. oregano
        1/8 gr. Basil
        1 tbsp.cooked chopped
        2 tbsp. chopped dried cranberries
        2 tbsp. chopped walnuts
        needed to cook full 10 min. then made an indent and cooked 2 mins longer.
        the filling, a peice of Brie and some red pepper jelly. I popped them cooled in the oven till till the cheese melts.
        They were great. looking forward to trying some more variations.

  2. I tried this one last September and it turns out soooo goood! This time I’m trying to go a little healthier. Can I mix or substitute coconut flour to this? If yes, how much? Thank yoouu 🙂

    1. Hi Gena! I haven’t tested the recipe with coconut flour so I couldn’t say for sure how they would turn out. The general rule for replacing all-purpose flour with coconut flour is: 1 cup all-purpose flour = ¼-1/3 cup coconut flour. Coconut flour can be baked at the same temperature as other recipes, no need for adjustment. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

  3. Hi, this looks so great! I’m gonna try this but I’m also trying to go a little healthier so I was wondering if I can mix or substitute coconut flour to this. Do you have any tips and what is the ratio? Thank you so much. 🙂

    1. Hi Gena! I bet the coconut flour would add great flavor and texture to the dough. I don’t have experience baking with it so I couldn’t say for sure how the cookie dough would come together or bake up, but it’s certainly worth a try. I hope they turn out just as great! Enjoy!

  4. These tasted great! I made six of the flavors (I didn’t have the mix-ins for the chocolate macadamia cookies) and loved the oatmeal cranberry best of all! My cookies all spread thinner than I would have liked, BUT I have to convert the measurements to grams so I think it was “user error” and will just add more flour next time around. 🙂 Also, all the cookies baked perfectly at 180°C for 8 minutes, so the bake time and temps didn’t need to be adjusted at all. Thanks for the great recipe!

  5. Hi there, the cookies look absolutely stunning! Can’t wait to try them out. Are these cookies the soft chewy kind or are they the crispy crunchy ones?

    1. Hi Angelina! They’re chewy on the inside with a slight crisp on the outside. If you want them softer and chewier, reduce the baking time. Enjoy!

  6. Love these cookies haven’t baked in a really long time and was trying to find a universal cookie dough so i could make a few different kinds as I have a grown cookie monster in my house and cookies do not last .I baked 48 cookies and they lasted 2 days . These are so good i made another batch and they are baking right now. Thanks for sharing the recipe this will be my go to cookie dough recipe from now on.

  7. Love this! Thanks so much for doing all the calculations for different number of varieties. This is now my go-to cookie recipe. I make the full recipe and divide into 4 1-cup containers to freeze. Fresh baked cookies whenever we want them. And they are so good, perfect taste and texture. Using your measurements I’ve make up varieties based on what we have on had. Chocolate cookie with butterscotch or peanut butter chips. Maple-pecan with maple extract , chopped pecans and a maple glaze. The possibilities are endless.

    1. Oh no! I’m wondering if it’s the elevation you live in or if your butter was too warm to start with or if you over-beat the dough when mixing it?

  8. This is such a genius recipe! However I noticed for me, the snickerdoodle cookies came out very thin, almost flat. I followed the recipe to a T and I will try again. I know i added the same amount of flour, has this happened to anyone else? Any tips/tricks would be helpful. Thanks!

  9. These are so good! Took awhile to prep all different kinds but they all tasted great. One and done. These would be good for Christmas time. Thank you!

    1. Hi Olga! If it’s an all-purpose gluten free flour, it should work great. I hope they turn out just as delicious for you. Enjoy!
