The only person who could fight me on these ratings is Cookie Monster himself, TBH.
Cookies are indeed a world treasure, but even as the cookie enthusiast I am, I can admit that not all cookies are on the same level of greatness. And that’s why today I am taking time to rank 40 of the most raved-about cookies from “not worth the hype” to “these couldn’t get any better.”
So, without further ado, here are what I think are the best (and worst) cookies the world has to offer!

Take a wild guess as to what number one is going to be!
There you have it! At the end of the day, cookies are still a top-tier dessert, and they’re all special in their own way. I’m looking forward to seeing how much you all agree (or more likely disagree) with my ranking. Let me know how you would rank these cookies in the comments below!
