Copying this over from Baking Delights…The Best 50 Cookies on the Internet was my biggest post ever and made the first page of Digg in 24 hours. Who knew that y’all liked cookies so darn much? Here it is, the original. I am checking all the links and polishing it up some but The 50 Best Cookies on the Internet is a classic and continues to be. Hey if you like this, please consider adding the new address to Digg or stumble…thanks. Gotta admit…I know my cookie dough.

I found these helpful charts last week and just had to share! Both of these beauties are from Chasing Delicious (aka one of the most fab foodie blogs out there)! Aren’t they faaaaabulous?! Buy them here . (Note: There are lots of little charts like this online, but these are my favorites).
I take for granted that growing up in the semi-south, I had the privilege of birthdays with red velvet cake. In fact it was one of the best parts of having a birthday. Red velvet lovin’ wasn’t relegated to my childhood, the red velvet I had on my 21st was from Magnolia Bakery in New York City, and it was so amazing that I froze it and would eat tiny slivers when the mood stuck me. I’ve been pretty vocal about my lack of interest in sweets, but another New York City temptation was cheesecake. Oh, Juniors and Roxy Delicatessen, why did you tempt me so?
