I belong to a group of women who spend our time raising money to send severely handicapped children to summer camp. During the summer, we bake 15 dozen cookies each week to be serve to the kids on Thursdays. With no small children any more, I have lost touch with whats popular. Would any of you share your childrens favorite cookie recipes with me?
Thanks so much

Tollhouse chocolate chip is a classic favorite.
The NFSC recipe is very good, too. (It's in the recipe section of the website).

I don't have any kids, but I babysit a ton. My favorite cookies to bake with kids and that they love are Ranger Cookies (or Everything But the Kitchen Sink cookies) and Funfetti Cookies. The Funfetti ones are on the side of the cake mix box. They aren't super fancy, but they are really easy to make (I bake them with 5-13 year olds) and you can make a lot of them at the same time. I love Nestle Tollhouse as well. Sometimes I replace the vanilla extract with Mapleline (sp?) flavoring. It makes them melt-in-your-mouth awesome!

Growing up my favorites were chocolate chip and no bake chocolate cookies! The thought makes my mouth water! Kids love brownies too! I've baked them in cupcake wrappers before to have easy individual servings- and they look cute in the wrapper!

Haystacks! My dad actually would make them for us when we were a kid. No baking involved. Just a bag of crunchy noodles that you get the the Chinese food section, stir in a bag of melted butterscotch chips, add some peanuts if you want, fold together, then plop them out in spoon fulls onto parchment paper, stick them in the fridge till they are set. SOOOOOO stinking good! I think I may have to make some tomorrow!

We can make the healthy dessert recipes for the kids by using fresh fruits which are available in the home. We can make the cool recipes like ice cream desserts which are mostly preferred by all kids. There are many only online sites where we can find a variety of recipes, which helps us to guide the step by step process in making the desserts.

They might not be popular in the USA, but here in Australia the kids (and adults) also go wild for meringues, and you can knock out really big batches quite quickly - it's just 2 ounces of sugar to each egg white, so they're cheap too. You can eat them plain, or sandwich pairs with chocolate, ganache, whipped cream, jam, dulce de leche....whatever you like. You can colour them, or paint stripes of colour in your piping bag, so the meringue kisses are striped.

Chocolate chip is always a favorite.  Sometimes I make then fairly small and sandwhich  two together with vanilla buttercream!  M & M cookies are a good choice too. Kids usually love sugar can make them in fun shapes, color the dough, ice them, use sprinkles..they present limitless options! 

Brownies or Rice Krispy Treats are a good choice too, if you want something more in a bar fashion.

No bake cookies!  The chocolate with oatmeal ones.  We add peanut butter too, but you may not be able to due to allergies.  

ETA:  And I meant to say, that's a really awesome thing you guys do!  Love it.
