The Cookie Nazi in our midst


Back in January, we had this conversation about cookies.

Me:  Younger Daughter, let’s make cookies tomorrow.

YD:  No!  We should not make cookies because Dad should not be eating cookies.

Husband:  Besides, you don’t make the kind of cookies I like.

Me:  What kind of cookies do you like?

Husband:    You know the cookies at Ellen’s New Year’s Eve party?  The ones with the gooey stuff inside?  And then there were the cream-filled cookies.

[He is practically swooning, thinking about these cookies.]

Me:  No, I don’t like cream-filled cookies.

Husband:    See?!  You like shortbread cookies, cut into shapes of who-knows-what.  You like Puritan cookies.  They are flat, like boards, and can be stacked, and they have no cream.

Me:  But they are so buttery and delicious tasting!  YD, let’s make cut-out cookies.  We never got to make them at Christmas-time.

YD:  We made an entire gingerbread house.

Me:   Oh, yeah...  How about pumpkin cookies?  They are like cake.

Husband:    Those are good.  They ARE like cake.

YD:  Dad should not be eating cake!

Ha! Bake what he won't eat--that's an excellent plan.

I feel for him. Fortunately (or perhaps un-?) in our house, we all like the same cookie.

OK, I'm with your husband on this one. Shortbread cookies aren't very good. I'm amused by the cookie Nazi, though. Sounds like my daughter ;)

My daughter is totally an enabler! There's no "let's" about it. It's "Mom, I'm going to make cookies."

Plus, shortbread cookies are excellent, plus, if you dip one half in melted chocolate, they're even better :-)

Cream-filled cookies are gross, almost as bad as cream-filled doughnuts. And that is what I took away from this post.

I have to make cookies for fellowship/coffee "hour" after church on Sunday. It will probably be of the simple variety (sugar?) but now I really want some shortbread.
