Try ‘Em: 9 Totally Unique Cookies

I think I’m stuck in a cookie rut.

It seems no matter where I go, it’s the same few cookies on repeat: Chocolate chip. Oatmeal raisin. Snickerdoodle.

Don’t misunderstand me: I love these tried-and-true treats. They’re in every cafe across the country because they’re delicious and guaranteed to please. But, aren’t we ready for something a little more adventurous?

I went on a hunt for some wonderful new cookies to change up the routine, and I guarantee there’s a recipe or two in here that you’ve never seen before:

Tuscan Cornmeal Cookies

These classic cornmeal cookies take on an Italian twist with the addition of lemon and orange zests, plus fragrant rosemary.

Thin Mint Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Crank up the flavors of this Girl Scout favorite in the form of a sandwich cookie. You probably can’t eat just one!

Almond-Anise Meltaways

A spin on “Mexican Wedding Cookies” that brings in the warm flavors of almond and fennel.

Hazelnut-Orange Biscotti

Typically, biscotti are flavored with the black licorice tones of anise. This version uses the bright and cheery flavors of orange and hazelnut instead.

Gluten-Free Viennese Crescent Cookies

A beloved recipe gets a modern update. They may be gluten free, but you’ll never know the difference!

Cowboy Cookies

Sweet and salty is the perfect combination, and these cookies deliver with oatmeal, chocolate chips, and pretzels for an amazing taste and texture. Toss in dried fruit for your own kick!

Almond Sable Cookies

These cookies are incredibly versatile. Use them as a pastry crust, eat them alone, or crumble over ice cream.

Chocolate Coconut Meringue Cookies

All the wonder of meringue cookies, with the added richness of tropical coconut and velvety chocolate. More, please!

Long Johns (Old-Fashioned Soft Molasses Cookies)

Spicy, rich, and chewy cookies that are perfect for winter.
