Peanut Butter Cookies

Chewy and packed with rich, nutty flavor, this fuss-free recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies checks all the boxes. Plus, it’s the supersize bakery style you know and love marked with the crosshatch pattern. 

Iced Animal Crackers

These Iced Animal Crackers remind our editor-in-chief Brian Hart Hoffman of his favorite brand of animal cookies when he was a kid. A thin glaze of royal icing is painted onto the cookies, which settles in the imprints of the design and dries to a crisp finish that makes the shapes pop.

Chewy Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

These grown-up–portioned treats bake up soft from edge to edge and will stay that way for several days thanks to moisture-attracting brown sugar and soft raisins in the cookie dough. Feel free to add a handful of chopped nuts if you like.
