Cookies are a wonderful alternative to traditional party desserts like cakes and pie. By having a variety of cookie types such as chocolate chip cookies, lemon cookies, peanut butter cookies, and biscotti, you give your guests options for dessert. This is particularly thoughtful for guests with allergies to chocolate or nuts.
With so many delicious cookie recipes, you could make your own. However, when planning for a party or larger event, you have enough on your plate. Find a bakery to provide the cookies. Other favorites include sugar cookies, gingerbread cookies, oatmeal cookies, and shortbread cookies.
Cookies are also a great idea as a favor. Choose a few different types of cookies or stick with several of one flavor and put them in a cute bag, box, or wrapping. Guests will love to leave with a little snack for later!
