Cookies are a favourite family treat for my kids. Whether it’s as a mid morning snack to keep them going till lunch or afterschool before the homework starts there’s never not a good time to enjoy. From simple no-chill sugar cookies to our favourite’s for holiday I’m sharing all of the simple and easy cookie recipes that I cook with you. Check out these delicious cookies below.
Basic Cookie Recipes
Easy and simple are where we are at – I don’t want complicated cookies most of the time so ones that can be made with not much fuss and taste and look great are the ones that I tend to make time and time again. Here’s the basic cookie recipes that I enjoy making for the family.
No-Chill Sugar Cookie
Probably the easiest cookie to make these no-chill sugar cookies are perfect for afterschool snacks or for special occasions. They do spread so these won’t be any good with your cookie cutters but I’ll share my recipe for those later!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
No frosting needed on these cookies – my absolutely favourite to make these simple chocolate chip cookies are ideal for those starting to learn to cook from scratch or like me a busy mom that just wants to know what all the ingredients are in the cookies that she shares with the kids.

A delicious and tasty oat and raisin cookies recipe. Soft and chewy cookies, packed with sweet raisins and oats are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Keep this recipe handy as it fills up the kids bellies and they will want more and more of them.
Of course, one of the best things are the special cookies that we share during the holidays, from Valentine’s through to Christmas there are plenty of holidays where a tray of cookies is the perfect easy treat for everyone to dig into. Here are some of my favourite holiday cookie recipes that I make year after year.
When time is short this is the cookie I make for Valentine’s. These red velvet cookies are simple (in fact I cheat!) and so easy to make. They look spectacular as well and everyone loves to taste them.
St Patrick’s Day Cookies
When you think of St Patrick’s Day rainbows come to mind and these colourful rainbow cookies are ideal for St Patrick’s Day. Easy to make – but they do take a little bit of time to ensure that the colours stay separated. But the time is well worth it don’t you think!
Ever so simple these almond-flavoured no-chill Easter sugar cookies are shaped like Easter Eggs and then decorated with a sugar glaze and sprinkles. A very easy cookie to make for those Easter Baskets.

When it’s busy but you want a delicious treat for your 4th of July BBQ or picnic these simple-to-make Patriotic Cookies are great.
By far the most complicated cookies I make (maybe a reflection that Halloween is one of my favourite holidays) these Tombstone Cookies take a while to decorate but the recipe for the cookie is ever so simple. These are great for any Halloween party you may have.
