A. Anybody wants cookies? = (Is there) anybody (who) wants cookies?
B. Anybody want cookies? = (Does) anybody want cookies?

Are the two sentences above correct? Or can we say them in less formal conversations?

Can we also say that A is a declarative statement made into a question by simply changing the intonation?

I would never use A.

B is used informally, but the complete sentence is, as you say, "Does anybody want cookies?"
Thank you so much for your answer.

If I say:

Anybody who wants cookies?

Is this acceptable?

AnonymousAnybody who wants cookies?

Is this acceptable?
To me, no.
No, me neither.

That is a noun phrase.

Anybody who wants cookies should come on over!
