Learn how to make amazing New York-style Cookies at home. These easy recipes will make super thick and chunky cookies from scratch – in all of America’s favourite flavours, from chocolate chip, to red velvet and peanut butter.
After visiting New York multiple times and eating my way through their enviable cookie scene, I’ve developed some of my favourite copycat New York-style cookie recipes.
From the famous Levain Bakery Cookies on the Upper East Side to Milk Bar Bakery in East Village, I’ve seen and tasted. And my love for cookies, especially American-style cookies, runs deep.
what is a New York-style cookie?
If you’re wondering what a New York-style cookie actually is, here’s how I would describe it. Big, thick, chunky, soft on the inside, crispy on the edges, and FULL of mix-in’s – whatever they may be.
Sometimes they’re stuffed, most often they’re full of chocolate. And I can’t get enough.
While a homemade version might never be quite as good as the real thing, I guarantee that each of these cookies will give you a New York state of mind and a very satisfied appetite.
So without further ado, here are my favourite New York-style cookies that will produce big, buttery cookies every time. Each one is on high rotation in my house!
Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you've always wanted to make a chocolate chip cookie that's super thick and chunky, this one’s for you! Inspired by the huge cookies from Levain Bakery in New York, this recipe uses a few tricks to make sure your cookies are big, fat and filled with chocolate. The best part? There's no chilling the dough, so they're quick and easy to make.
Double Chocolate Cookies
Love chocolate? You’ll go mad for these Double Chocolate New York-style Cookies. Made with cocoa, and filled chunks of chocolate, they’re soft, chewy and oh-so-chocolatey. We use cold butter in this recipe to make sure they stay thick and chunky. They’re perfect if you need a chocolate fix stat, because they’re ready to eat in 30 minutes.
Nutella Stuffed Cookies
Just when we thought things couldn’t get any better, we made New York CCC’s and stuffed them with Nutella. Our secret way of filling these cookies means they’re thick and gooey and oozing Nutella in every bite. Definitely a crowdpleaser.
M&M Marshmallow Cookies
After visiting M&M’s World in New York, we had to make an M&M New York Cookie! These big, buttery cookies are filled with crunchy M&M’s, chewy marshmallows and chocolate chips. Perfect to make with the kids!
Chunky Walnut Chocolate Cookies
I love how many New York-style cookies utilize nuts for crunch. Fudgy like a brownie, these chunky Chocolate Cookies are filled with crunchy walnuts, and white chocolate and dark chocolate chunks. They’re soft, chewy and completely moreish.
Calling all Biscoff lovers! We’ve taken everything we love about our Levain Bakery Cookies and made a Biscoff version. These huge New York-style cookies are filled with creamy Biscoff spread, crunchy Biscoff cookies and chunks of white chocolate. They're incredible.
Ever wanted to know what happens when you add maple syrup into your cookie dough? Inspired by the flavours of a good American breakfast, these buttery cookies have crispy edges, a sweet maple caramel flavour and plenty of pecans and white chocolate. You will need to chill the dough, but the flavour profile of these cookies is next level.
Chocolate Oreo Cookies
Inspired by America’s favourite cookie, these big Chocolate Oreo Cookies are a dream come true. Super soft inside, these cocoa-lade cookies are filled with chocolate and chopped Oreo cookies. America's favourite cookie inside a cookie - genius.
Red Velvet Cookies
After falling in love with Red Velvet Cake, I couldn’t wait to come home and made a cookie version! These quick and easy cookies are part vanilla, part chocolate and filled with white chocolate. Super chewy and way more portable than the cake version.
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
Is there anything more sumptious than chocolate and peanut butter? These super chunky cookies are reminscent of Levain Bakery's famous Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies. Think fudgy middles, crispy crusts and oodles of gooey peanut butter and chocolate chips. The best part? They're ready to eat in just 30 minutes.
