Here are four of our favourite Great Canadian Baking Show cookie recipes for you to try. 

Milk Chocoate Digestive Cookies

Just like the ones grandma used to serve with tea, except much, much better. They were a Technical Bake during Season 2.

Marshmallow Puffs

A childhood favourite that was also a Technical Bake during Season 3.

We asked Season 1 baker Sinclair Shuit for his family's shortbread recipe, and now you can have it, too.

Maple Leaf Sandwich Cookies

The most Canadian sandwich cookie, and a Technical from Season 1.

Maple cream cookies were a deceptively simple technical bake in the Canada Week episode of The Great Canadian Baking Show. (The Great Canadian Baking Show)
