Question, who still has a cookie jar and uses it? I have friends with cookie jar collections, but don’t know of any who use a cookie jar anymore – well at least that would admit it. Do people just not eat cookies these days? Or is a “sleeve” of Oreos just that, a cellophane tube

Wandering around on the internet at 3:00 am can be dangerous. For me, that means I’m looking at things that I shouldn’t… like recipes for cookies and coffee cakes and sugar-laden breads.

Taste buds begging for a little something sweet? These cookies do require a bit of time, but the flavor is a just reward. Should I confess now or later about my goof on these mocha morsels?
