What's the best (underrated) cookie recipe you've ever come across?

I'm a lover of baked goods, especially cookies, but I feel like I make basic versions of the same three cookies every time: chocolate chip, snicker doodles, and peanut butter. Now there's nothing wrong with these three cookie types, but does anyone know of a little spin I could add to make the cookies more interesting? Like an extra ingredient, an unusual method of making them, or an underrated recipe that many people aren't familiar with? Just let me know.

preacher cookies - made on top of the stove, few ingredients, ready in a jiffy yet full of rich chocolate flavor. You can also change them up by adding things like peanut butter.

Thanks for this answer. I made some last night and it was amazingly good. So chocolaty, peanut buttery, and full of oatmeal. I'd say they're the most interesting cookies I've ever made.

The best I have come acrosses and made were farmhouse biscuits (or cookies) depending on your location...lol They are made with the usual flour, sugar, butter etc but they you are add museli, oats, crunchy peanut butter (or maybe it was smooth) but I used crunchy and there was another nut but I saying the ingredients from memory so I may have forgetton some. There are absolutely delicious. Someone I gave them too ate them and said they tasted like the ones that brought in a shop!!!!

I made peanut butter cookies just using 3 ingredients. Whenever I tell anyone about it I get the same reaction. They don't believe you can make a cookie with only 3 ingredients. You can and they are much better than any other recipe I've ever come across. Some of the best recipes I've come across have been from those fund raiser cook books that churches, etc. sell. Not all of them work out, but sometimes you can find a diamond in the rough.

hi juwujaren^^;; i love chocolate chips cookies and i do love baking too. hhhmmm, although this is not my recipe, but why not try to add oats on it. it's the same recipe but you just lessen the flour and add oats 2x the flour you removed. Though the oats will make the cookie a little bit harder but crunchier. I love oatmeal cookies because it helps digestion.
