10. Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookie Dippers
Shortbread cookies are buttery, dense, and tender - a nice change up from your everyday chocolate chip cookie! While shortbread can be tricky to master for the beginner baker, I think they're worth the extra effort.

9. Birthday Cake Cookies
This was one of the first few recipes posted on The Toasty Kitchen back in 2017. I was determined to make a birthday cake cookie that didn't use a cake mix as the base. They've been a reader favorite for years!
