I can’t imagine a person who doesn’t like cookies. Eating them is one of the most fun parts of our lives. So, it isn’t a surprise that they are very popular on Pinterest. Pinterest recipes for cookies are all over the net.

It is easy to come up with a list of cookie recipes but it is hard to rank them. Not only everyone has a different favorite but also one can change his/her favorite quite often.  Cookies make a great snack and they are small meal substitutes. Here is a list of the top cookies of Pinterest that are easy to make.
