I Really Like Cookies

Yesterday morning, I received this text message from my friend, Lesli:

i-like-cookies

 

Some might call it a typo, but I believe it to be a Freudian slip. I, at any given moment, have cookies on my mind. 

What I Love About Cookies

  • I never met a cookie I didn’t like. 
  • There are many different varieties, it’s hard to grow bored. If you get tired of one, just move on to the next. 
  • Cookies have a good salt to sugar ratio. I remember in 8th grade during home economics class when we were baking cookies, this girl said “my mom and I always omit the salt in cookie recipes.” NEVER OMIT THE SALT… unless you doctor told you to avoid salt, of course, just give me a heads up so know what I’m getting into.
  • There’s a lot of flavor in one bite. I love that burst of flavor that makes me salivate instantly. I know, pleasant thought. 
  • Two words: Cookie. Dough. 

My Cookie Experience

  • Once, I bought Mr. Fitness half a dozen of chocolate chip cookies for a Valentine’s Day fundraiser and I ate all but one. 
  • I made cookies for my neighbors at Christmas time, but I ate them all so they got chocolate covered pretzel rods instead. 
  • Elizabeth’s mom used to send her homemade pumpkin raisin cookies in college. I ate most of them. She got back from class one day and this conversation happened:

Me: I had one of your cookies.
Elizabeth: You can have as many as you want.
Me: Okay, because I had 2. 
Elizabeth: (laughing) You can eat as many as you want.
Me: Great, because I really ate 6. 

  • Her mom sent store-bought gingerbread cookies once too. Same situation. Mrs. A, if you’re reading this, please know I really miss your cookies. 
  • Christmas is probably my favorite holiday because of all the cookies going around.
  • Fun fact: I’ve never been involved in a cookie swap believe it or not! People are probably afraid to invite me.

  • I love cookies more than I like my job! (Oh wait….that’s a no-brainer!) I love cookies so much that I buy candles that smell like them for moments when I can’t spend the night in the kitchen baking. I have to keep cookie dough away from me because I get myself in to major trouble too easily.
