A little-known fact about me is that I’m a huge cookie connoisseur. Oatmeal-raisin cookies make my taste buds sing majestic praises whenever I eat them. I take my cookies seriously, so it made a lot of sense for me to learn how to bake them on my own.
I was invited to be part of a “cookie-baking day” with one of my favorite little people, and one of my favorite big people. We had the goal of making mouth-watering oatmeal raisin and chocolate-chip cookies and we kept this goal in mind as we began building the cookies. I was in charge of mixing the concoction and I was also the designated “cookie-baller-upper.” I took my jobs seriously.
After strenuously working for about 45 minutes to create the cookies we went to retrieve our amazing creation from the oven. We opened the oven but cookies were nowhere to be seen–just a pan full of “chocolate-chip mounds” and “oatmeal-raisin cement chunks.” I wish I could describe the taste, but if I tasted these cookies I probably wouldn’t have lived to tell this story.
I’ll leave the baking stuff to my favorite Cousin Betty…Betty Crocker.
