    OK...I'm going to give you my world-famous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe...just because you seem like a nice guy. :) These are a huge hit when I make them for work. I made 14 dozen once for about 25 people and they were gone within hours!

    1 cup brown sugar

    1 cup white sugar

    1 cup sweet butter

    2 eggs

    2 Tablespoons milk

    2 teaspoons vanilla

    2 cups flour

    1 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1 teaspoon baking powder

    2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats (not the Quick Oats)

    18 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

    1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

    1) Cream sugars and butter until smooth and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well. Combine flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Gradually beat into batter. By hand, stir in oats, chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop onto cool baking sheet (chill dough between sheets) and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

    Makes between 5 and 7 dozen, depending how big you make the cookies.

    These are awesome:

    White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

    I make a basic chocolate chip cookie dough, but use white chocolate chips, dried cranberries

    1/2 cup butter, softened

    1/2 cup packed brown sugar

    1/2 cup white sugar

    1 egg

    1 tsp vanilla

    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

    1/2 tsp baking soda

    3/4 cup white chocolate chips

    1 cup dried cranberries

    1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

    2 In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and brandy. Combine the flour and baking soda; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the white chocolate chips and cranberries. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.

    3 Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. For best results, take them out while they are still doughy. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

    Servings: 12

    Yield: 2 dozen.

    Iced pumpkin cookies

    1 cup unsalted butter

    1 cup sugar

    1 cup cooked, pureed pumpkin (fresh or canned)

    1 egg

    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    2 cups unbleached allpurpose flour

    1 teaspoon baking powder

    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

    1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

    1 cup raisins


    2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar

    1/4 cup butter, softened

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    3 tablespoons whipping cream, fresh orange juice or rum

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla and mix well. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir into butter mixture until well blended. Add nuts and raisins. Drop by teaspoonful onto parchment covered baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake about 15 minutes, or until golden. Cool.

    Icing: Cream confectioners' sugar and butter. Add remaining ingredients and beat until smooth. (If icing is too thin, add more confectioners' sugar; if too thick, add more cream, orange juice or rum.) Drizzle over cookies.

    Candy cane cookies

    1 cup butter, softened

    1 cup confectioners' sugar

    1 egg

    2 teaspoons almond extract

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

    1/2 teaspoon red food coloring

    24 pieces round peppermint candy

    1/4 cup sugar

    Melted chocolate, for drizzling, optional

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

    In a mixer bowl or by hand, cream butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in egg, almond extract, vanilla, and salt. Blend flour into mixture in several additions, beat until just combined.

    Remove half the dough from the bowl. Blend red food coloring into the half remaining in the bowl until the coloring is even. Cover dough a kitchen towel to keep it from drying out as you work. Use a floured teaspoon to measure 1 teaspoon each of white and red dough for each cookie. Roll into 4-inch ropes on a lightly floured surface. Place a red and white rope side-by-side, press together lightly and twist to form a spiral. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Curve top down to form handle of a candy cane. Bake until set, about 9 minutes. While the cookies are baking, put peppermint candies in a resealable plastic bag and crush into small pieces with a rolling pin. Mix the candy with the sugar. Place cooling rack over shallow pan. Immediately remove cookies from cookie sheet and gently place onto cooling rack. Sprinkle with candy/sugar mixture.

    Optional: Cool cookies, drizzle with melted chocolate, and add more candy mixture on top of chocolate.

    1 cup white sugar

    2 eggs, lightly beaten

    2 teaspoons baking powder

    In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

    Roll out dough and cut into shapes with cookie cutters or a knife. Brush with milk and sprinkle with colored sugar. Bake on a sheet pan or a parchment lined sheet pan in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 10 to 15 minutes depending on the size of the cookie. Remove cookies to a rack to cool completely.
