What are some good cookie recipes?

I don't have chocolate, so I need a cookie that's vanilla or something. I don't want anything that's cakey, I want something soft and really chewy. I don't want it to be TOO plain (for example, snickerdoodles are too plain and not chewy or soft enough) but I've tried everything and it's never come out as good as I wanted them to. I don't have frosting or sprinkles so I can't decorate, that's why I'm not making cupcakes. Let me know what you think would be good.

    Cinnamon Swirl Refrigerator Cookies :

    **parchment paper or small amount of vegetable shortening for preparing baking sheets...

    - Dough :

    1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

    ½ cup granulated sugar

    2 large eggs

    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    3 cups all-purpose flour, plus additional for work surface

    2 teaspoons baking powder

    ½ teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    - Filling :

    1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

    2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

    - Icing :

    2 ½ cups confectioners (powdered) sugar

    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    3 to 4 tablespoons milk

    Dough :

    -- In a large bowl of an electric mixer, combine butter and sugar; beat together until mixture is light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula so the mixture blends evenly.

    -- Add eggs and vanilla; beat until thoroughly mixed.

    -- Add flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon; stir until mixed.

    -- .Pat dough into a 6 inch disc. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

    Filling :

    -- In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and 2 tablespoons cinnamon. Set aside.

    Assembly :

    -- On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a rectangular shape and a ¼ inch thickness.

    -- Sprinkle brown sugar cinnamon filling mixture evenly over dough and press lightly into the dough with your fingers.

    -- Roll-up dough jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Brush off any excess flour from the dough.

    -- Wrap in wax paper or plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 4 hours or overnight.

    -- .Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare 2 large baking sheets; lightly grease with shortening, or line with parchment paper, or line with a non-stick baking mat.

    Bake :

    -- Slice dough into ¼ inch slices and place 2 inches apart on baking sheets.

    Return remaining dough to refrigerator until ready to use.

    ** My favorite tool to cut refrigerator cookies is a stainless steel dough scraper; simply push the dough scraper straight down into the cookie for straight cuts. Or use a small kitchen knife to slice the cookies.... ;)))

    Bake :

    -- Bake 9 minutes or until cookies are set and the edges are just barely browned.

    -- Remove from oven and let cookies cool on baking sheet one minute. Remove cookies from baking sheets with a metal spatula and place on a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.

    Icing :

    -- In a small mixing bowl, combine confectioner’s sugar, butter, and vanilla; stir until mixed.

    -- Add enough milk so the mixture is a good drizzling consistency; stir until smooth.

    Drizzle on cooled cookies.

    ((makes about 6 dozen cookies...
