Anna Ginsberg is a self-taught, non-professional home cookie baker whose knowledge comes from books, experimentation, cooking classes, and tips from baking & cooking pals around the nation. When she's not entering cook-offs or recipe contests, she likes to bake cookies and write about them on her blog Cookie Madness.
My favorite cookie bloggers are independent people who try not to bake what every other blogger is baking at the moment and who put their hearts into each post. Most of them make other goodies as well, but their cookie collections stand out based on quality, quantity or a combination of both. These are my current Top 10.

Someone once told me “Find something that you’re really good at and stick with it.” Jeff must have been given the same advice because he’s devoted his whole blog to oatmeal cookies. All the recipes Jeff posts are unique his own unique creations. Try the Cranberry Crunch Oatmeal Cookies.
Jessica is on the cutting edge sweet ideas and she’s willing to test certain recipes that sound interesting but iffy – for instance, bacon shortbread or Asian oatmeal cookies made with Goji berries. I like Jessica’s selection of cookie recipes and her open-minded approach to sweets. She’s also very nice and an active participant in her comment section.
Rita is a pastry chef in Portugal. She likes to tests the limits when it comes to flavors – Chicken and Broccoli Biscotti? But somebody’s gotta do it, right? How else would we have figured out bacon goes well in gingersnaps.

Tiffany packs a lot of information onto one page, yet the blog is still fairly easy to navigate. What I love about this one is the number of recipes and reviews. There are plenty and each one has a personal review from either Tiffany or a friend.
