My family has several favorite homemade cookies that we all enjoy. One night I was in the mood to make cookies, I wanted oatmeal raisin, the kids wanted chocolate chip, and the husband wanted peanut butter chocolate chip. So how do I choose? Thats easy... make one cookie to please everyone. Thats just what I did. Because it's what I do.
