We don’t know about you, but as soon as October hits, we’ve run straight into baking season. From cookies to cakes to brownies to pies and more, the hardest part is finding the time to make it all! And when it comes to choosing which of these treats to bake, cookies top the chart. Not only do you get to snack on the cookie dough (our favorite part!), but the whole house smells tantalizing delicious while giving you a snack on the go.
That’s why we thought we’d share some of our favorite cookie recipes to make this fall. All of them are made with the Mr. Food Test Kitchen’s signature “Quick & Easy” cooking style, so you have more time to make a second batch! Plus, at the end, we’ll tell you all about our Christmas cookie contest where your Christmas cookie recipe could be featured on TV.
