Top 5 Types Of Cookies

What's in a cookie? Sugar, spice, and everything wonderful.

Top 5 Types Of Cookies
Maria Campbell

If I were not in college, I would definitely be Cookie Monster’s protégé. Some people are beer experts and some people are cheese experts, but if there’s a place in the world of expertise for the infallible cookie, count me in. I love to eat cookies as much as I love making them. After extensive testing over a span of however many years I’ve had cognitive function, as well as conducting research on numerous brands and bakeries, here are my personal rankings for five of the most popular types of cookies.

(Honorable mention: I would have put peanut butter cookies on this list, but the last batch of peanut butter cookies I consumed had ACTUAL PEANUTS in them. I am still holding a grudge and I'm pretty sure that's not what God wants from us.)

5. White chocolate macadamia nut

To me, macadamia nut cookies are not completely unfavorable by any means, but they do land on the bottom of the list for a few reasons. First, the nut-to-chocolate ratio is almost always uneven in favor of the nuts. Second, these cookies are the hardest to make from scratch because have you seen how much macadamia nuts actually cost? Rating: 5/10 not super tasty but would still happily stuff my face with them.

4. Sugar

These are the blank canvas cookies. They can be decorated with icing, sprinkles, or left plain. I don’t have a type. But they are literally just mounds of flour and sugar and leavening agents. When I’m eating something sweet, I don’t want to be CONSTANTLY reminded of just how much closer I am to giving myself diabetes. Rating: 6.5/10 because frosting them is still fun.

3. Snickerdoodle

The snickerdoodle is the hotter and spicier younger sibling of the sugar cookie. Same genes and all, but the snickerdoodle was blessed with a lil’ something extra: cinnamon. Snickerdoodles taste like Christmas and a warm blanket in front of a fireplace. Plus, that texture though: fluffy, buttery, basically eating a cloud. Rating: 8/10 would marry.

2. Chocolate chip

The classic. Ranking them any lower would be sacrilegious. They are versatile and are acceptable chewy or crunchy (team chewy here). Words can't explain the pleasure of biting into a perfect chunk of gooey chocolate or that succulent texture that only comes after dipping the cookie in a glass of cold milk. Perfectly good - and even better - when eaten raw too. Rating: 9/10 **flame emoji three times in a row**

1. Oatmeal raisin

Yes, oatmeal cookies. The ones everyone complains about because they wanted chocolate chip and were deceived. I’ll let you try to find a cookie that is as moist (sorry I know that word is gross) and flavorful as the oatmeal raisin cookie is. These cookies are also the most breakfast-friendly and I am a firm believer in breakfast food at any time of day. Plus, oatmeal cookies are versatile too! Don’t like the raisins? Replace them with virtually anything else—like chocolate chips or the blood of those who wronged you in the past—and you would still get a deliciously spiced cookie whose texture game is A1. Rating: 1000/10 can eat as many as you’d like and still poop the next day, Thanks fiber.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
