Cut everything in smaller portions. Not exactly rocket science, but a smaller portion has fewer calories.
Cutting a pie in 10 pieces vs. 8 pieces saves 25% calories (cutting in 12 pieces vs. 8 pieces saves 33%).
Cut brownie and cakes into "3 bites" size.
Make smaller cookies. If you're in charge of baking, you're in total control of portion sizes. Use that control to your advantage!
Make fewer varieties of cookies. Research confirms that a greater variety of choices results in a person eating more.
If there are 4 kinds of cookies, you'll want to try them all. It's just human nature.
Bake non-edible crafts (ornaments, etc.) instead of tempting high fat baked goods.
