When was the last time you made homemade cookies? Whether it’s been a while, or if you made some just last weekend, you’re going to want to check out these five delicious recipes.

No. 1: Christopher Kimball's Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Christopher Kimball of America’s Test Kitchen knows baking – after all, it’s his job to test and perfect recipes! His peanut butter sandwich cookies feature two levels of peanut butter deliciousness – moist and fluffy cookie and peanut butter cream.

No. 2: Cookies and Cream Fudge

This fudge has only three ingredients, and the recipe was created by a kid! Just melt some white chocolate with a can of sweetened condensed milk and mix in a whole package of crushed Oreos. Pour into a wax-paper-lined dish, let set, and slice!

No. 3: Grant's Red Velvet Cookies

Grant’s red velvet cookies feature everyone’s favorite secret ingredient – cream cheese! These beautiful treats would work for any occasion, but the festive combination of red and white would make them great for your holiday cookie swap or even Valentine’s Day, so be sure to bookmark the recipe for later.

No. 4: Kelsey Nixon’s Banana Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies

This delish and nutrish recipe starts with protein-rich quinoa, adding in heart-healthy oats, potassium-rich bananas and good fat-laden coconut and pecans, to result in a treat that packs a healthy punch!

No. 5: Cookie Monster’s Favorite Molasses Crackle Cookies

These delicious and spice-laden cookies are made with a mix of all purpose flour, whole wheat flour and oat bran, and feature only a small amount of sugar, so they are a treat you don’t have to feel guilty about!
