Tasting cookies is always tricky — not because of taste —but because of texture. Some panelists prefer soft cookies and others want some snap to their biscuits. That said, our judges have been pretty consistent with their favorite brands. Ten years ago, they picked Archway cookies among their top three favorites. This summer, judges gave them top billing. Of the six brands tasted, judges were impressed mostly with the cookies having the deepest flavor.
