Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These wholesome cookies are as comforting as they come. For a sweeter twist, swap in chocolate chips or dried cranberries for the raisins.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Want fresh-baked cookies in minutes? Place rounds of raw cookie dough on a baking sheet in the freezer. Once frozen, transfer the dough to a plastic zip-top bag and store in the freezer until ready to bake. No need to defrost; just add a few minutes to the baking time.

Brownies

While not technically a cookie, brownies are certainly classic and for good reason. They're chewy, chocolate-y, rich, and a snap to put together. Cut them into small bites for little ones or serve with ice cream for a party.
