47 cookie recipes for every season and occasion

In 1939, Ruth Wakefield decided to experiment with the cookie recipe she’d been using at her Massachusetts restaurant, the Toll House. She added a few Nestle Semi-Sweet chocolate chunks to her batter, and wound up with a treat she called the “Toll House Crunch Cookie.”
Today, 7 billion chocolate chip cookies are eaten in the United States annually. About 50% of them are homemade. But if creamy chocolate chunks aren’t really your thing, there are plenty of other options to satisfy your sweet tooth. Stacker compiled a list of cookie recipes from Allrecipes. From sugar cookies to jam-filled treats, there’s sure to be something here to inspire your next dozen (or two!).
