Got a can of pumpkin puree on hand? Use it to whip up these fall-flavored cookies, which feature rich pumpkin spice and semi-sweet morsels. The pumpkin in the dough means the cookies will not spread much in the oven, so make sure you flatten each cookie before baking. Once cooled, you’ll have a delicious dessert that’s lightly crisp on the outside and wonderfully soft on the inside.
If you follow a gluten or grain-free diet, this is the recipe for you. Almond flour means the cookies will be soft and chewy — perfect for when you’re craving some comfort food. Pro tip? Don’t skip the sea salt on top! The combination of sweet and salty ensures that these cookies are next-level delicious.
In a recent poll of Food Network staffers’ favorite cookie recipe, these tahini chocolate chip cookies were the obvious winner. Nutty, fluffy and totally unique, consider this an elevated (and delicious) take on a beloved dessert. One word of advice? The dough needs to chill for at least six hours before baking, so start these cookies the night before you’ll need them for serving.
No, you don’t need an oven to bake cookies. Thanks to your air fryer, these mini cookies are super-cakey and ready in a flash. We like to stash balled dough in the freezer so a warm and gooey cookie is ready to go whenever the craving strikes.
