Gone are the days when a “cookie” meant the butter cookies you have with tea. Stuffed, topped, skillet-fried, filled, chewy…they’re as over-the-top as any other dessert now!

Coming a long way from their humble beginnings, here are 25 of Dubai’s best cookies (not in ranking order) ? PS: Guys, I love my cookies, but I like them a bit soft/chewy, I’m not a fan of hard crisp cookies, those are just biscuits lol ? Thus, needless to say, the below aren’t the latter! (Disclaimer: Prices of the cookies may change!)


1. Nutella sea salt cookie [AED 11] from Butter Dessert Salon

LOOK. AT. THAT. OOZE ?? This sinful goodness will leave you with complete satisfaction and an incredible sugar high!

2. Nutella sea salt cookie [AED 11] from Home Bakery

You can’t really see it here cuz its umm… stuffed.. But this soft and crumbly cookie is filled with Nutella goodness! ? There isn’t as much Nutella as the next cookie in the list, but if you want a perfect amount, this is it!

3. Salted chocolate chunk cookies [AED 65 for 6] from Melange

You’ve probably seen pictures of Nadia’s stunning cakes (which can only be described as pieces of art) on Instagram, but did you know she makes some of the most delicious cookies too? You can find them at 20 Grams Speciality Coffee, Typica and Drowsy Cafe in Sharjah, and online too from November 1st onwards! ?

4. Nutella and peanut butter bites [AED 79.75 for 15] from Monkey Cookies

These guys need no introduction! Their cookie bites explode with flavour and are most probably one of the UAE’s most loved cookies. Be warned though, it is humanly impossible to stop at one ? PS: Always ask for a fresh batch, cuz sometimes the fillings are all dried up, when it’s fresh, it’s perfect!

5. Double chocolate cookie [AED 12] from Ben’s cookies

Fun fact: If you eat your cookies really fast, your Fitbit thinks you’re running ? Very few things in life are better than giant soft cookies stuffed with chocolate chips and chocolate oozing out, right? Absolutely worth the calories!

These bad boys are similar to Monkey cookies, but have a much larger variety of fillings! Red velvet, dates and saffron, kinder, pistachio, Lotus, chocolate truffle… I’m drooling ?

7. Nutella sea salt cookies [AED 11] from Joga

A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand. I read that from Joga’s Instagram, and I completely agree.

A burst of lotus in a cookie! These goodies are the perfect treat for any Lotus lover! They also offer a large variety of other cookies, like Chai spiced white chocolate, Dark caramel Dulcey, Milk chocolate s’mores, and more!


1. Chewy melts [AED 9 per regular piece/AED 53 for 25 mini chewy melts] from Home Bakery

These babies are incredibly chewy and will literally melt in your mouth. What more could anyone want? Tip from Naomi: Get the normal-sized cookie, because there is more of a ‘center’ you can indulge in!

2. Brownie Dimes [AED 2 per piece/AED 20 for 15] from London Dairy

If you only knew London Dairy for their ice cream, you have been missing out! Their chewy melts are SO GOOD, and ridiculously sinful. Just thinking of them makes we want to run out and get a box ? (oh they also have some of the best cheesecakes in town)!


1. Skillet chocolate chip cookie [AED 39] from Chili’s

Though Chili’s is most widely known for the molten chocolate lava cake, their skillet chocolate chip cookie is also a strong contender! I love how soft this cookie is, and how generous they are with the chocolate chips ?

5. Cookie Blondie Skillet [AED 41] from Blaze Burgers

The only issue with having a delicious skillet like this at this place is, you may never end up getting there cuz the burgers themselves are DELICIOUS (arguably some of the best in Dubai). You have a choice of topping this chocolate, then icecream, on top of an already warm cookie skillet! ?

1. Cookie bon bites [AED 7] from Cinnabon

My world literally stopped spinning when I heard about this. Combining 2 of the best treats – a Cinnabon and a cookie in one? GENIUS! I haven’t had the chance to try this myself yet, but did hear raving reviews from quite a few people ?

2. Classic choco-chip cookie [AED7] from Great American Cookies

THIS is what classic authentic cookies taste like. The best part is, they not only have regular-sized cookies, but you can also get COOKIE CAKES ?? I actually bought this for Jade’s (my sister) birthday, with text on it (you can always request, check their Instagram for options)!! It was amazing, and it will also leave your guests impressed with your choice.

5. Chocolate chip cookie [AED5] from Hardees
