Do you want to eat this cookie?
IN FACT, I would eat this entire plate full of cookies right now if three cookie monsters who will remain nameless (ahem… you know who you are.) hadn’t beat me to it. They even demolished my secret ziploc freezer bag stash that was cleverly stuffed behind two loaves of bread and a roll of parchment paper. Apparrently I’m just going to have to be a bit more clever. Game on.
These were first day of school/after school snack cookies. For some reason, school turns the cookie monsters into the hungriest small people to ever roam the earth. They come through the door like ravenous little dinosaurs and if there isn’t a snack waiting they will rummage through the cabinets and devour all the cereal, raisins, and pretzels. Then they move on to the fridge and start putting dents in all the apples, yogurt, and cheese.
