You know I don't pick favorites but I would have to say that my favorite cookie is my mom's chocolate chip. And then an oatmeal chocolate chip. And then a nice lemon cookie. And on the bottom would be anything with raisins or anything that someone claims is healthy. Why would I want to eat a healthy cookie? And also, why are you giving me a healthy cookie? Do you hate me?
Somewhere in the middle of that list is the snickerdoodle. Sure, I like them, but I would never request them. And if there were other options (that didn't have raisins or wheat germ in them) then I'd choose those first. That is, until tonight. My seminary kids requested snickerdoodles so I pulled out the America's Test Kitchen baking book and made their recipe and Knights of Columbus! If those weren't the best cookies I've ever eaten I don't know what were. They were buttery and sugary and cinnamony and the edges were crisp and the centers were chewy and my whole place smells like Baked Goods Heaven now. I had two. And will probably have two tomorrow as well. And then work out for two hours. But worth it, right?
