Favorite Grocery Store Aisle Cookies

1.) Pepperidge Farm Verona
Buttery, almost savory shortbread cookies with a thumbprint of jam. I am almost addicted.

2.) Nabisco Grahm Crackers
Ok, may be a cracker than a cookie, but I mostly use these for cheesecake and tart crusts (mixed with melted butter), and the results are fantastic. I have tried many other different brands without the same success.

So what am I missing here? What are your favorites?

Pepperidge Farm Raspberry Milanos. The absolute best cookie you can buy. Their chocolate chip cookies are also good. The Chesapeakes especially.

Little Debby, Figaroo fig bars are some of the best. Next to them are the Peanut Butter Crunch bars.

Fig bars of any kind are good for your digestion.

We don't eat a lot of sweets. The only grocery store cookies I buy are Pepperidge Farm Dark Chocolate Milano cookies. I use them to make quick tiramisu for DH's birthday dessert.

Girl Scout cookies are our next favorites, Samoas for Himself, Thin Mints for me. However, we buy the knock-off ones at Aldi (about a buck a package), then donate gift cards to our daughter's Girl Scout troop instead of buying cookies from a troop 600+ miles away. The Scouts end up with the full value of the gift cards; they probably get no more than 20% value on the sale of each box.

I'm not driving to Omaha, long enough drive to Scottsbluff if I have a hankering.

Yes they do, msm! If by "peanut butter" you mean the chocolate covered ones, I've seen those at Aldi. If you mean the sandwich kind with PB between two oatmeal cookies, I've not seen those.

My list is odd. Most cookies I bake from scratch and often make chocolate chip pecan cookies (I like em crispy) and short bread but for store bought:

Nabisco famous chocolate wafers - great for baking
Biscoff wafers - great with tea


and... when I'm all done adulting - Chocolate covered, marshmallow filled pinwheels!

Janet, I almost picked up a package of those at Aldi last week. Now I really have a taste for them!

msm, those are the version that I buy at Aldi. Be sure to check out all the cookies next time you go. We haven't found one that we were dissatisfied with yet.

It's been 4 months since I've been in any kind of grocery store, and I'm having a hard time missing my beloved Trader Joe's. I love their wide variety of cookies, especially their Maple Leaf sandwich cookies!

If Girl Scout Cookies are hard to come by where you live or you would like a healthier recipe for them, you may want to give this link a look over.

https://www.foodnetwork.com/fn-dish/...tbread-cookies

I used to take my Grandmother around to stores, Dr appointments, etc as she didn't drive. I was amazed at some of the places I saw Girl Scout cookies for sale. #1 Beauty Salons. (many girls have grand mothers who own beauty salons and they put their cookies there for grand mother to sell to her following or network) #2 Insurance Offices. (many are operated by women who will buy the girls lot that they are supposed to sell. Then the girl can proudly proclaim, "I sold all of mine in one day" Remember any of that back in school days ? The cookies are then given as gifts where they can be deducted from the Income Tax. Generally the products are accompanied with a receipt and written up as something besides "girl scout cookies". (this could also work for anyone in Sales as a #3)
