I have several weaknesses, one of which is cookies. I love the damn things. Most guys love beer, or sports, but I have passion for cookies. I do not appreciate it when cookie makers over do it by adding way too much goop such as nuts, chunks of chocolate.
Sometimes cookie makers get it right. Kicki recently gave me some oatmeal cookies for my ride home. Now “The Keeks” is what we’d call “Crunchy. ” She is a granola, and that’s fine, she thinks I’m Crunchy as well, but I was a little worried that she was sharing something that would taste healthy, and we all know that there are few good tasting healthy dishes. I was pleasantly surprised that she made the prefect oatmeal cookie. There were a few raisins and sun flower seeds, but the balance was absolutely perfect.
I love it when people pay attention. A while ago I told a friend that then only way I would like chocolate chip cookies would be if they didn’t put chocolate chips in them. Today this friend brought me a batch of chocolate chip-less chocolate chip cookies.
It seems that some people know the way to my heart; cookies, and good cookies at that. I’m a simple guy. I used to judge a person by their cup cake making ability, but these days all it takes is a good cookie.
To my dear friends who care enough to make me cookies, thank you.
