What To Choose When You Want To Buy Cookies? Know Your Cookie Types

Do you know what your favourite kind of cookie is? There are so many different types to choose from when you want a cookie delivery. Will they be soft? Will they be crunchy? Read on to find out more about the best kinds of cookies in Australia. 

Drop Cookies

The quintessential example of a drop cookie is the chocolate chip cookie. The dough for this cookie is soft and will be “dropped” in spoonfuls onto a baking sheet. The spoonfuls are spaced out evenly, as the dough will spread, forming a flat, crunchy cookie.  Other examples include oatmeal cookies and coconut macaroons.

Moulded Cookies

As the name suggests, these cookies are moulded into shapes, by hand, before baking. The dough for this type of cookie is therefore firmer. Commonly, the dough is rolled into a ball and pressed down slightly with a fork. Examples of moulded cookies include peanut butter cookies, biscotti cookies and almond crescents.

Cutout Cookies

These cookies are created using a firmer dough that is rolled out with a rolling pin. The flattened dough is then cut into shapes with a knife, pastry wheel or cookie cutter. These shaped treats are often decorated with sugar, sprinkles, nuts or icing. Examples of cutout cookies are gingerbread men and sugar cookies.

Pressed Cookies

Soft dough is placed into a cookie press and squeezed out in various shapes like hearts, flowers, leaves, trees and stars. A pleasing thing about these cookies is their uniform shape and size. Pressed cookies can also be decorated with sugar, sprinkles, nuts or icing.  Butter cookies work well as pressed cookies.

Bar Cookies

The dough is pressed into a baking tray, baked and then cut into bars or squares. Frequently, these cookies have flavoursome ingredients such as nuts, oats, fruit or raisins. Breakfast bars are cut into larger bars and make a suitable breakfast substitute. Date bars, fudge brownies and fruit squares are all good examples.
