Mine would have to be Snickerdoodles or pecan puffs AKA Mexican wedding cookies.I don't want to start a riot or anything but chocolate is not a favorite.My husband and sons are crazy for it so I do a lot of baking with chocolate.

I like anything with oatmeal.  I have a chocolate oatmeal cookie recipe that is very good.  One can add chocolate chips for a more chocolate fix.  That said, it is hard to beat the original Toll House cookie

Where to start....
I don't think I could pick just one cookie as a favorite.  And like the post that asked for my favorite chocolate dessert I don't think I have found it ....yet.  I will keep searching until I find the one that would be a favorite but until then I will continue to test, taste and search for the best cookie, cake, pastry, chocolate candy or what have you.
Seriously it depends on my mood as to what I "crave" at the time.  I particularly like bar cookies for the ease of clean up and the one pan baking.  But most cookies can be made in this fashion.
I just made a batch of Oatmeal Carmalita bars for a retirement party.
I love "my" Sticky Ginger Squares, a recipe I found at http://www.kingarthurflour.com
Anything made with peanut butter and chocolate is an absolute winner in my book.
So I continue to search for the Absolute Favorite.....whatever.

My favorites are many, but tomorrow I will post "Super Lemon squares"  and Turtle Brownies. They are two of my favorites, but are bars not cookies.   Does that count?

My favorite cooky is oatmeal raisin with walnuts or cranberries.  The challenge is to not eat too many of them.

Barbara I count bar "cookies" as a cookie. I have seen many a cookie recipe also give a bake time for baking in a 13X9 pan and cutting the result in bars as well so I will continue to count bars as cookies.
I think as long as it is not a cake or a pastry it could count as a cookie how is that for "all inclusive"?
Will be interesting to find out what others think.
Is a "Bar"  considered a "Cookie"?
Ok Ann, how do you start a poll?
