The most searched cookie : I am one of those people who always needs to have a box of homemade cookies. In my family, Swiss were only bought when we went to visit, and precisely because I wanted to enjoy them more often, I learned to bake them myself. There is so much variety that you could not choose just a few! But there is no doubt that there are certain cookie recipes that are more successful than others.
There are them very thin and crunchy, others more tender or even spongy, puff pastry or smooth, with chocolate, nuts, cereals or seeds, decorated or rustic, round or with fun shapes, stuffed or glazed … With so many different types, which ones? Do you think they are the five most searched cookies on the Internet? I’m sure almost all of them are among your favorites.
1. Butter cookies
These cookies or the following ones had to enter the number one of this top, any other option would have been very strange. Shortbread cookies are the mother of all cookies, although they can also be made with other fats or with no other fats. There are delicious oil cookies, others prefer them with butter or peanut butter, and they can be very tasty just with eggs … but there is nothing like the delicious taste and texture of good butter cookies.
Investing in a good quality butter is essential to make them really tasty, and I would recommend not making them too sweet. The most basic recipe serves as a base to decorate them, to fill them or to add other ingredients, such as chocolate chips, coconut or almonds. We can also play with the shape to find different textures, letting it cool for several hours or directly forming more or less flattened balls.
