Each December, many of us take to the internet to decide which new Christmas cookies we’re going to bake during the holiday season. And unsurprisingly, the type of Christmas cookies that were searched for the most this year differed from state to state. How do you know which sugary confection topped the list in your place of residence? Google, of course.

The search engine released the data earlier this month and found that gingerbread was the most popular cookie search this year, as it topped the list in seven states and Washington, D.C. Peanut butter was a close second as the most popular search in seven states, followed by “international cookies,” which includes confections from Italy, Poland and Mexico. 

There weren’t any super weird cookies on the list, but interestingly, it seems like people are watching their waistlines a little less this year. According to Food & Wine, at this time last year, “keto cookies” and “gluten-free cookies” topped the list of the most searched for cookies in eight different states. This year, those terms didn’t even make the list.
