We can't seem to get enough of these perfectly sized desserts. There are many different yummy cookie recipes including sugar cookie recipes like this one. Chocolate chip cookie recipes seem to account for more than half of the types of recipes that are made at home. Chocolate chip cookies actually came into being because of an accident. Ruth Graves Wakefield was making cookies for the guests at the Toll House Inn when she decided to add in some of the chocolate candy bar she had on hand to make chocolate cookies. Ruth assumed that the chocolate would melt into the cookie dough and become one with the vanilla flavoured dough to make a chocolatey cookie. To her surprise, the chocolate didn't melt into the cookie batter, it remained in the chunks she had cut it into. She served up the cookies none the less, and when the guests tried them out, they loved them, so Ruth continued to bake her famous chocolate chip cookies.

The people at Hershey's chocolate factory heard about her famous recipe and asked her for the recipe in exchange for a lifetime supply of the Hershey's classic chocolate bars. Ruth accepted the offer and Hershey's company went on to put the recipe for Ruth's famous cookies on the back of the chocolate wrapper, and eventually made the cute little chocolate chips we know and love today. Sugar cookie recipes like the the one here from The Cozy Apron were much popular throughout history until the invention of the chocolate chip cookie recipe. A common sugar cookie recipe involves either just a plain cookie or a cookie that has a maraschino cherry placed on top, or some jam placed in the middle in a little imprint created in the cookie by your thumb. These cookies are called thumbprint cookies and are enjoyed mainly at Christmas time.

This apricot sugar cookie pie recipe involves all purpose regular flour like most recipes for homemade cookies do. People who have an allergy to gluten or wheat need to stay away from these types of things as they can cause severe allergic reactions. But, luckily there are recipes for cookies without flour that are pretty simple to make. There are gluten free flours that can be used to make cookies, but you have to find the right recipe as the gluten free flour cannot be used as a 1:1 substitute since it is a different weight and texture. You can find plenty of recipes for cookies without flour online and on Pinterest. There is even a cookie recipe without flour that only calls for three ingredients and it is super easy to make. Try out some of the yummy cookie recipes from The Cozy Apron and see just how delicious they are.***
