The Five Most Expensive Types of Cookies in the World

Who doesn't love a decadent cookie now and then? We've had our share of amazing cookies and they come in all shapes and sizes. We were wondering what is the most expensive type of cookie in the world? How much does it cost and what is it made of. This led us to do a little more research into the matter and we were really surprised at what we found. Here are the five most expensive types of cookies in the world.

5. Bohemian Feather Cookies Boho Leaf Cookie - $38.00

You get a total of 12 of these special order sugar cookies which measure just 3 inches each. They are handmade and decorated with royal icing. Only King Arthur Flour and Land O' Lakes butter are used in these expensive cookies that are the fifth most expensive you can buy.

4. Hand Painted gold pumpkin cookies - $42 per dozen

These cookies are made from high quality and fresh ingredients. They are handmade specialties that come in a package of six hand-painted gold details with six pumpkins and 6 assorted leaves for the perfect edible fall centerpiece. Each of the cookies is individually wrapped and heat-sealed for freshness. They are available for sale through Etsy and the artisan who makes the cookies is happy to accept special orders and even rush orders, but these will cost an additional fee. These specialty cookies feature real edible gold for a luxurious treat.

3. Bahlsen 4.4 Ounce Butter Leaves Cookies - $52.97

Bahlsen Butter Leaves cookies are the most expensive butter cookies we've seen. They're made with rich and fresh ingredients that give them a unique combination of creamy buttery taste with a crispness to each bite. They melt in your mouth and they're certified to be vegan, gluten-free and kosher. There are only 12 cookies which weight a total of 4.4 ounces for a whopping $52.97. The Bahlsen butter leaves cookies are the third most expensive cookies for commercial sale in the world today. In case you're wondering if these cookies are worth the price, there are a lot of people who happily take them off the baker's hands so they're a big hit among the wealthy who don't mind paying the high price for a truly delicious butter cookie.

2. Gold leaf Monkey cookies from Selfridges - A tin of six gold cookies and nine bites is £145.

What do you get for 145 in British pounds? Selfridges deluxe chocolate cookies. When you break down the cost, they come to a high price of 23 pounds per cookie. This is easily one of the most expensive cookies in the world. If you're wondering how they dare to ask for and get such a high price, it's because each of these mouth-watering cookies is made with genuine gold. Each chocolate chip cookie is made by hand and then topped with Hershey's chocolate and then it is wrapped in a sheet of gold and on top of this, it's sprinkled liberally with gold flakes. Of course, it's edible gold. You get six of them in a tin. If you can't find a gift to buy for the person who has everything already, then this might fit the bill.

1. Pierre Herme Macaroons - Cost: $100 to $7,400 per pound

The most expensive cookie type in the world is a macaroon. But it's not just any old macaroon. The most expensive macaroons in the world are made by pastry chef Pierre Herme. His box of assorted macaroons go for $100 per pound and the breakdown comes to $5 per cookie.

What makes these cookies so special? We found out that they are made with a recipe that is particular. He uses aged egg whites, confectioner's sugar and white almond powder which has been double sieved.

The filling is even more special. Herme's macaroons are famous for the flavors. he offers a choice of hundreds of them. Just a few include his Arabesque with apricot and pistachio, Mogadore with passion fruit ganache paired with milk chocolate, Americano Pamplemousse with a Campari and grapefruit ganache, a Rose macaroon that is flavored with rose petal ganache and many many more.
