Gourmet's Annual Best Cookies - 1940s to 2000s

LindaWhit | Dec 4, 2008 06:22 PM

Got this link in a Gourmet newsletter tonight...very interesting to see how the cookie styles and flavors change over the decades. I like the photograph of each year's cookie for a quick "do I remember those?" view.

And while it might not be the specific Gourmet cookie recipe my Mom or I made, many of these look familiar - the ginger sugar cookie (which one person commented she knew as Molasses Crinkles, which is how I remembered them), the Lace Cookie, the Speculaas, which I remember my Norwegian grandmother making (although Fatigmans were more often made in her house), and the Lemon Thins.
