The weather may be warm and the leaves may still be on the trees, but the second we flip our calendars to September, we get antsy for autumn. That’s when we start to get serious about our fall baking, stocking up on flour, sugar, and the good vanilla (Ina Garten would be proud!) for all of our quick bread, cinnamon roll, and cookie needs.
Our passion for cookies comes in handy in the fall. Not only are they one of the tastiest ways to use up the pumpkin puree and apple cider you’ve been stocking up on at the store, but they’re also one of the most versatile on-the-go snacks. Whether you’re prepping for bake sales, after-school snacks, office holiday parties, or Halloween movie marathons, a platter of cookies is always welcome.
Chewy, soft, crispy, frosted, no-bake, cut-out, or drop, there’s an autumn cookie recipe here for everyone with a sweet tooth.
