    Please share your top 3 favorite cookies. Not just types, but the actual cookie itself like the brand or recipe!

    What I'm getting at is that for example I love chocolate chip cookies but most cookies are terrible. You need the right type of ingredients to get the right texture that's not over processed.

    Whatchu got?

    At least those are the ones my browser gets the most of.

    (I don't eat sweets.)
    However my late wife, Nancy Reagan and Riesa Gorbachov all agreed that
    THESE are the world's best cookies.

    I don't buy any of them any more because no matter what the quantity, they're gone in less than a day...

    Girls Scout Peanut Butter Cookies.

    Freihofer's Chocolate Chip Cookies.

    Oreo Double Stuff.

    As a general rule, when I open a box I'm committed. There's no such thing as "cookie leftovers" at the TMC residence.

    TJ's used to have these killer palmier cookies, then they disappeared.
    Darn, I loved these suckers.

    Yeah I don't know how people keep cookies or ice cream for long periods of time.

    If it's good, I'm eating it!

    When I was a kid it was Oreo's but we were poor so it was a rare occurrence usually at someone else's house. As I got older I starting liking chocolate chip cookies especially when the soft kind came along.

    Today my mostest favoritest is a tie between the Heath Bar cookies from Public or the Almond Joy gourmet cookies at Winn Dixie. Man oh man I can go down on those like I still smoke weed.

    and a friend's Snickerdoodles, I don't have the recipe, but they are so soft and good.

    Just like everyone else, they don't stay too long. Usually once they are opened, it's like I have a fear that they won't be as good if I leave any behind, so they just get eaten.

    The wife brought these home and gave me a package. Home made by the Amish heath bars. Oh yum. Not sure if it counts as a cookie. But waayy better than a heath bar you would buy at the convieniece store.....

    When I was in college, I lived one entire quarter on chocolate chip cookies and Budweiser. If I got super hungry, I'd eat a gas station hot dog, and maybe a boiled egg. Now, I didn't have to do this, it was totally by choice. I weighed about 128 pounds and had a 28" waist. Never felt better. I might go back on that diet one of these days.

    I'm sort of a cookie contrarian. I like bargain-brand fig newtons. I hate the "made with real fruit" and "reduced fat" national brands. The name brands don't put enough lard, sugar, and preservatives in their versions to satisfy my cravings.

    Right now my go-to el-cheapo is the Kroger house brand: PSSSST! Fig Newtons. $2.50 a pack. Great packaging to boot. I eat one (yep, one) every night after dinner. A pack lasts me about six weeks. The last few out of the pack are as soft as the first one out of the pack.

    Every morning with my coffee, I eat one (yes one) Digestive. Sort of a cardboard and asbestos super-high fiber affair.

    I scarfed a huge tin of Christie Cookies that showed up at the house at Christmas. Put on about 15 extra pounds thanks to that gift. Next year I'm re-gifting them immediately.

    When I drank some years ago, my taste in whisky was similar to my taste in cookies. I preferred the bottom shelf rot-gut scotch over the good stuff. I liked drinking something that bit back. None of my party pals would touch my bottle after they sampled it. I can still feel the burn.

    Given my pattern, is it any wonder that I'm a big fan of Rondo music?

    Another option I might suggest is Mickey's Malt and cottage cheese. That worked for me most of one summer back in my early 20s and I had no problem keeping my girlish figure...

    I don't know if the gluten-free is what makes them so crispy....
