October brings lots of tasty fall foods and food holidays to the table. This month, we’re celebrating apples, caramel, chili, pasta, popcorn and pretzels – all in October! But the most important food celebration that occurs in October might just be National Cookie Month.

Cookies are the perfect dessert – versatile, easy to eat, and adaptable to all taste preferences. They can satisfy your craving for something rich and chocolatey, nutty, fruity, or even hearty. And who could forget plain old cookie dough? After all, what other dessert tastes just as good raw as it does baked?

So to celebrate one of the best desserts out there, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite cookie recipes for every kind of cookie craving. Scroll through the slideshow for some delicious baking inspiration.

  1. Wow, those look amazing. I want to try the rosemary asiago one. As for my favorite cookie, my grandma used to make a meringue cookie with chocolate chips. They were an extra special treat for us grand kids when she put red food coloring in the batter and made them pink!

  2. YAY!! Movita’s is on top!!
    I made those fab cookies last week and they were a HUGE HIT.
    Absolutely going to stay in my cookie book.

    Sent some to a company up in Port Townsend, too, as they took good “customer care” service to my husband. I love to pass goodies around———x
    And I can tell that you do, too =)

    yum yum
