The holiday season is in full swing with festive potluck parties, cookie swaps, family dinners, and friend get-togethers. This time of the year is all about delicious food and making sweet memories. And there’s no better way to make those precious memories than to bake the most perfect batch of cookies.
In case you didn’t know, the first cookie recipe dates back to the 7th century. Can you imagine how many kinds of cookies have been invented since? It’s just too much to choose from - too many flavors, textures, shapes, and forms.

So, let’s figure out what cookies you should bake based on your zodiac sign and why it’s the one for you. And don’t let Mercury in retrograde mess up your holiday cookie baking plans.
Here’s our cookie zodiac list.
This fire sign is tirelessly adventurous and energetic. Ambitious and courageous to a fault - you always love to be the first and the best. That’s probably why this is the first sign on the zodiac.
You always dive headfirst into the most challenging situations without any contemplation. And no matter the outcome, you will insist that it is precisely what you have always wanted.
You rarely say one thing and do another. You go all-in on everything you do, including your desserts. What cookie suits this audacious ram better than the ultimate cookie number one - chocolate chip? And it can’t be just some chocolate chip cookie - it has to be the biggest and the best out there!
Giant Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie - is the one cookie recipe for you, Aries.
Taurus is a tornado of emotions - one minute you’re up, the next minute you’re down, the next you’re furious “just because.” You’re colorful, passionate, and love with all your heart.
You are stable and reliable yet can be incredibly stubborn. Often Tauruses are very contradictory and argumentative due to their passionate nature. A silly romantic comedy where everyone is happy and having fun can make your day, and a small meaningless comment can just as easily ruin it for you.
Tauruses are straightforward people and enjoy simple things: sleeping, drinking, eating… Eating they enjoy the most - Tauruses are natural-born foodies!
When it comes to cookies, you are as passionate and indulgent as can be. The perfect cookie for a Taurus must have everything, “everything but the kitchen sink.”

It’s a common misconception that Geminis have two sides to their personality. They have many. Geminis are playful, curious, and easily bored. They are constantly juggling a myriad of hobbies, passions, and social activities.
A Gemini is willing to try everything at least once, so don’t even try to challenge them or win a game of truth or dare. A true social butterfly of a sign is always the center of attention and has something to say about almost everything. The flipside of Gemini’s sociability is that they can be pretty gossipy at times.
Geminis love to learn and can be incredibly creative. They are the ones to try the trending flavors or embrace a new ethnic cuisine. It was probably a Gemini who started the hybrid foods craze and came up with unicorn-colored everything.
You crave new sensations, exciting combinations of flavors and textures. Just a simple black and white cookie won’t do it. It has to be a next-level cookie flavor mash-up.
Homemade Oreo Churros - is the cookie recipe a Gemini will love.
One of the most emotional and sentimental signs, Cancers wear their hearts on their sleeves. Like crabs representing this sign, there is nothing more important to them than their home, family, and friends. Cancers are most comfortable surrounded by their loved ones and close friends.
Whether they know it or not, they are all born with an exceptional talent for cross-stitching, knitting, patchworking, or some other vintage craft. Cancers are very sentimental and adore everything old-school and vintage.
Food is love for them. Being highly emotional and sometimes moody, Cancers seek comfort in food from time to time. It has to be something delicious and warm, with a dash of spice and a touch of nostalgia.
Molasses Crinkles - are the cookies that sentimental Cancers should bake.
Rightfully represented by the lion, Leos are strong, determined, and confident. Leos are natural leaders and can grab anyone’s attention, being the center of attention everywhere they go. Even though sometimes they will do anything to draw attention to themselves, Leos are not as self-centered as they appear - they will do everything in their power to help a friend in need, even if it means making themselves look bad.
Leos are incredibly generous and love giving presents, planning surprises, or cooking for their family and friends. They are just as generous with their time and attention and seem to attract people with their kindness.
Everything they do must fit a king, and the same goes for the food they choose to eat. To satisfy royal Leo’s appetite, the cookie must be decadent and regal - gourmet enough to please them and good enough to make as gifts for their loved ones.
Cookie Dough Bites recipe fits the bill for their royal highness Leos.
Virgos are known for being practical, sensible, and loyal. They are very meticulous and driven in pursuing their goals. The same goes for the special people in their lives - Virgos are dedicated, reliable, and patient.
Virgos are perfectionists and always give their best to any task at hand, no matter how much time it takes them. This same quality makes them very particular about how they need everything around them to be organized. They coordinate their wardrobe by color, make their bed in a specific way, or arrange their records by artist, genre, alphabet, and year of release.
You don’t have to ask Virgo if their glass is half full or half empty. For them, it’s always dirty. Their dessert has to be elegant and minimalistic - nothing too fussy like extra frosting or other ingredients generating mess - an excellent fresh-flavored fuss-free cookie.
Italian Lemon Cookie - is the perfect cookie recipe for Virgo.
Champions of compromise - Libras are pleasant and exciting to be around. They are great colleagues, leaders, friends, and partners. Libras always prefer to look on the bright side and see the best in people, trying to stay fair to everyone. This quality makes them very social.
Libras often have trouble making decisions or committing to social activities, trying to stay fair and not offend anyone. But even if they double book and accidentally forget to show up at your party, Libras are still the most wonderful and loyal friends.
Libras love high-quality, gourmet food. If they like something, they can easily overindulge. Trying to find harmony and balance in both life and dessert, Libras crave a perfect blend of flavors. The flavors in their perfect cookie cannot overpower one another, and the texture has to be complimenting the flavors.

Scorpio is one of the most ambiguous and misunderstood zodiac signs. They have several layers to their personality and can be pretty fierce and intimidating on the surface. But it’s when you get to really know a Scorpio, and you will discover their profoundly emotional and sensitive side.
Independence and determination are two of the most powerful qualities that make Scorpios intense in all things they do. They are fascinating people, always looking to uncover something new and mysterious. They enjoy investigating things - the first person to ever come up with a conspiracy theory was most likely a Scorpio.
Honest to a fault, Scorpios always tell the truth no matter what. Their trust is hard to earn, but they are the most loyal and dedicated friends and partners ready to bite to death to protect their loved ones once they trust someone.
Scorpio’s perfect cookie has to be as multi-layered as their personality. It has to have something exciting and sensual beneath the surface with layers of flavors and texture, like the intensity of rich double chocolate and the unexpected taste of peppermint.
Double Chocolate Peppermint Cookie - is the perfect cookie for the mysterious Scorpio to bake.
Sagittarians are natural-born adventurers and innovators. They would rather get hurt than do something the usual “easy” way. They are incredibly sophisticated, independent, and kind, always offering a unique artistic perspective on anyone and anything.
Their independence and determination to do things their own way make them some of the most innovative people out there. They are fun to work with but, at times, might ignore people’s ideas and opinions and do their own thing.
Sagittarius usually has no problem getting along with the most diverse groups of people and can empathize with everyone’s experience. They see value in living their truth and want the same for everyone.

Capricorns are diligent, pragmatic, and disciplined. They respect traditions and have no time to engage in drama. They are incredibly independent and hard-working, sometimes to a fault. They always set a clear goal to accomplish and get it done no matter what or how much time it takes.
Capricorns are very analytical and hold others to the same standard they hold themselves. They sometimes need to remind themselves to relax and take it easy. Even though Capricorns can be hard on themselves, they are the most loyal and devoted friends.
They need to have strong connections to family traditions and their past. They enjoy family gatherings, birthdays, holidays, and dinners with friends when they can share and reminisce together with their loved ones. Capricorns don’t have time for all the latest trendy foods. They have family recipes and stick to classics. Their family heirlooms probably include a handwritten recipe book and great grandma’s iron skillet.
Capricorns love tried and tested desserts and classic flavors. Their perfect cookie must be no-fuss, quick, and only contain simple ingredients so that they can bake some anytime they want it.
Snickerdoodle Cookies - are the perfect cookies the traditional Capricorn should.
Whoever came up with the phrase “rules are meant to be broken” was definitely an Aquarius. This sign is famous for being incredibly intelligent and innovative, not afraid to think outside the box. They apply their originality to everything, striving to make everything around them better - from their best friend’s mood to the global environmental problems.
Aquarius loves being eccentric and considers ordinary to be boring. They can frustrate those around them cause they easily get absorbed by their ideas and honestly believe that they are the only ones right. But it’s only because they really care and will do whatever it takes to make the world a better place.
They are truly free spirits and have very few inhibitions, are very open-minded, and are willing to embrace everything and everyone. Aquarians love to engage in complex, exciting conversations and explore the most bizarre philosophical concepts. In fact, that’s how they fall in love. While for some, the way to the heart is through the stomach; it’s through the brain for Aquarius.
Aquarians like to think outside the box and combine flavors and textures when it comes to food. They are probably the ones who came up with the Chicago-style cheddar caramel popcorn. Their cookie needs to be a bit quirky and have some buzz.
Caramel Bourbon Brownie Cookie - is the perfect cookie recipe for the free-spirited Aquarius.
Pisces is of the most empathetic and artistic signs. They are compassionate, thoughtful, and always in tune with the emotions of those around them. They often express their overflowing feelings using art - they have a powerful imagination and are not bound by logic.
Pisces are known dreamers - their whole world is their imagination. Their openness allows them to explore ideas others may overlook or find impractical. Their personality may seem to pull them in two different directions, but they know how to turn their dreams into reality when they focus. And while they can remember something exciting that happened three years ago, they have no idea what they had for breakfast.
Pisces are incredibly generous and are known to put everyone else’s needs before their own. They care deeply and fall for people fast and hard. They value family and close friends and love family gatherings and holidays. It’s essential to them to make everyone around them happy.
Pisces love to share food with the ones they love. Being so highly generous and uniquely artistic, the perfect cookie for this sign has to be truly special. Something original and shareable.
Cookie Dough Dip is a unique cookie recipe that perfectly reflects the character of the artistic and generous Pisces.
