I’m obsessed with cookies. Well, truthfully, I’m not all that obsessed with eating cookies. I’m not even obsessed with baking cookies, since I rarely make them other than at Christmas. I’m more obsessed with the idea of cookies. They are like these perfect little bites that can evoke so much creativity. Decorated cookies, cookies with sprinkles, cookies with chips, cut out, dropped, rolled, bars, sandwiched, no-bake, twice baked, chocolaty, peanut buttery, minty, fruity, nutty – whatever you like, there’s a cookie for you. I mean, let’s just start with a few of my own favorite recipes…
