As you might have heard, The Sweetest Season Virtual Cookie Exchange was the last week of November… and y’all, we had some amazing recipes shared during that week!

Since we’re still in the season of holiday baking, I wanted to share some cookie inspiration with y’all.

What are the best cookies to bake?

That depends on you and your tastebuds! (For me, it depends on that, as well as what flavors I’m in the mood for.)

Thanks to this year’s bakers, we’ve got all kinds of different cookies to bake, including bar cookies, drop cookies, cut out cookies, no bake cookie and more.

What do I need to bake cookies this holiday season?

Again—it depends on what you’re baking and what you’ve already got in your kitchen.

I went ahead and wrote out The 10 Best Baking Tools for Cookies. This post has some extras in it, too, just in case you need something specific for the recipe you’re making.
