Can someone please explain to me what exactly it is about cookies that makes them feel like childhood? I haven’t figured it out yet.
I’m not talking about packaged, store-bought cookies that are full of preservatives, fake flavorings & some pour excuse for what ever they put in instead of butter. I’m talking about cookies that make you think of your grandmother. Or mother. Or maybe about that sweet girl/guy in school who brought you cookies when you weren’t feeling well. I’m talking about fresh out of the oven cookies. I’m talking about cookies that make your whole house smell a little bit like the holidays. Yea. Those cookies. Not packaged frozen cookies dough, but cookies made when you’ve got a craving.
I’m talking about white chocolate. Dried, slightly sour cranberries. Pretending to be healthy oats. And of course, lots of sugar and butter. Now that’s what I’m talking about.
Yea, clearly we don’t do diet food on this blog. Sorry readers.
I will say this though, whether you like them loaded with chocolate, gooey, crunchy, full of fruit, sweet, a little bitter, or any other way, there is always a right time for a good cookie.
