In our house we make cookies.  A lot a LOT of cookies.  Way way too many.  But honestly, wouldn't you make a ton of cookies if your helpers were as cute as mine? 

I vividly remember helping my own mother in the kitchen; sitting on the counter and digging my digits into the dough.  It's amusing to see my girlies doing the very same thing.

We are strictly a chocolate chip kinda family but are known to throw some oatmeal in there as well.

Our three main recipes:

For a soft, gooey, melty cookie

For a crispy yet chewy cookie

For the ultimate milk chocolate oatmeal cookie:

1 ¼ cup brown sugar
1 c. butter
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
3 c. old fashioned oats
1 1/3 c. flour
-milk chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. 
Beat all ingredients except oats, flour and chocolate chips in large bowl w/ mixer on medium. 
Stir in oats, flour and chocolate chips.

Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.

Tip:  I actually use quite a bit LESS sugar in each recipe.  The first recipe I only use 1/2 cup of white sugar.  The second about a 1/4 cup less white sugar and the third recipe only about 1/8 of a cup less since it only calls for brown.  They still taste delicious!
