There are some foods that most people don't outgrow or take off their favorites list even after decades. Cookies are great example of these as young kids and the young at heart truly enjoy eating cookies whether as snacks, desserts or sometimes even as the main course. You can always express your creativity in making cookies. Whether in the shape, mixture, or taste, cookies never fail to impress and are something that many people crave for. Cookie recipes can come in many varieties and with some simple changes to the ingredients, the shape, and the presentation, you can make cookies that everyone will remember and love.

- Make your cookie recipe more exiting by adding chopped nuts to your mixture. Everyone is sure to enjoy this nutty treat as the mild saltiness can give contrast to the sweetness of the cookie. Additionally, the crunch texture of the nuts is also something that many people will enjoy, whether your cookie is soft, crumbly or chewy.

- For variety, add raisins to your cookie or any dried fruit such as cherry or apple. This can give texture to the otherwise boring plain cookie mix. Dried cranberries and mango pieces are also worth experimenting with.

- To delight everyone's sweet tooth, add chocolate chips as you finish off combining the mixture or on top of the mixture when they are already in the mold. For some, they add the chocolate chips just moments before the cookie is done baking. With this, they want to ensure that the chips will not be deformed and melt and still retain its beautiful shape.

- Cookies are more fun to eat if they are in different shapes aside from the classic round shape.
