What are some good cookie recipes?

Question by Rainbow Rayne: What are some good cookie recipes?
Recently my boyfriend was talking about how the girlfriend of one of his buddies made some amazing cookies. He said they were oreos covered in a light blue chocolate with white chocolate snowflakes on them or something like that. I want some sort of cute, yummy, creative cookie recipe so I can show him I’m pretty good at cooking too, since I’ve been doing it my whole life.

I want something that will hopefully impress him a bit, look good, and taste good. Any suggestions please?
