Mini Eggs and Chocolate Chunk Cookies

From beloved Hamilton bakery Cake & Loaf, these are both easy and, invariably, a crowd-pleaser. (Our editor-in-chief brought these to meetings during the holidays and they vanished in record time.) Sub in M&Ms or Smarties when it's not Mini Egg season for the ultimate after-school treat. Get Cake & Loaf Bakery’s Mini Eggs and Chocolate Chunk Cookies recipe.

Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

Maybe one of the most classic cookies, ever. Get this oatmeal-raisin cookie recipe.

Kitchen lesson: When butter and sugar are creamed together, air is incorporated evenly in the base of a batter or dough. Soft butter creates tenderness and lift. (Which is why these cookies are soft and chewy.)
