I give you Aachener Printen:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aachener_Printen

I'm absolutely addicted to these things. Sort of like a traditional lebkuchen, but with a different mouthfeel and ingredients like anise and honey. Oh man.

Stateside, have to admit I'm a Nutter Butter fan.

Chocolate chip all the way. Peanut butter is good, too.

Hard/soft? Barring straight out of the oven, I prefer a chewy chocolate chip. I'm outvoted though - the whole rest of the family likes the crunchy ones.

Those Aachener Printen sound nice; beetroot is a main ingredient? Guess on my way to Lübeck and Wuppertal (eventually) I'll have to stop in Aachen too.

If I'm in a UA lounge, I'll always grab a Walker's shortbread. For Pepperidge Farm, Chessmen, though original Milano did it well too.

Lu comes to mind, as do various cookies in a Japanese convenience store.

The LHR *A lounge has an excellent cookie also. I always grab a few packs when I'm there. I've forgotten what brand it is, maybe Walker's.

By the way, most of those bakeries in Aachen ship, so I always have them sent to my house. Of course, I live here in Germany. International would probably be prohibitive.

White chocolate macadamia nut, preferably soft/chewy, but I'll take a crunchy one without complaint.

Laura Todd cookies, bought at Lafayette Gourmet in Paris. Unbelievably yummy.

Original site is in French, so this is the yelp page.

Chewy chocolate chip cookies, although more soft than "chewy."

Looks like Dijon also has a Lafayette. I will visit next week and try to pick some up. Thanks for the tip.

Very "melt-in-your-mouthy." Almost tastes like the raw dough (but isn't).

Spritz (Swedish butter cookies) for me. Walnut crescent cookies are a very close second.

I'm a soft/chewy fan also. One of my favorites is Tiff's Treats here in Texas, and it is not just because I share a name with the owner. They deliver warm, straight from the over cookies, and they remind me of college.

Oreo.

At Christmas time, though, butter cookies.
