Chocolate Chip Cookies by Jessica Makin, submitted via e-mail:
Jessica M.'s Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 sticks of butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
3 cups flour
1 bag choc chips (I use half milk and half white chocolate, I like the flavor combination, but it depends on what you prefer. Splurge on the Ghirardelli chips.
Totally worth it.)

Cream together butter, and both sugars for a good 5-6 minutes, until the batter can hold peaks (kind of like when you make whipped cream). Add the eggs and mix for another couple minutes. Add vanilla and mix. Combine salt, baking soda and flour and slowly add to the mixture. After fully combined, add your choice of chocolate chips. Unless you have a Kitchen Aid/Bosch mixer you will have to add the choc chi
ps by hand. my hand mixer gets tired after I add the flour!

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Enjoy!

I've found with this recipe that the real key is mixing each ingredient for several minutes. They bake nicer when you take the time to do it. Definitely worth it! If you decide to double the recipe, it makes A LOT of cookies. Also, if you double it, only use 3 eggs, not 4. The recipe above is actually half of the original recipe, but it makes a more reasonable amount of cookies.

Bring to a boil:
1 cube butter
2 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c milk
1 c peanut butter

Mix in 3 1/2 c quick oats ~ Drop on waxed paper, (cheap sandwich bags also work well for kids to stick their hand right into) ~ Place in freezer to chill at least 45mins before serving, (when wax paper is pulled away from bottom of cookie-cookie should stand out stiff)

Frosting Any whipped vanilla frosting a few drops coconut extract shredded coconut (the amount is up to you) *if you're not a coconut fan, whipped cream cheese or just plain vanilla are excellent too!

Those sound good...can't wait to start checking out the links. Sure wish I wasn't so lazy about baking cookies. They're easy enough but for some reason I just can't get motivated to bake 'em.
