I know you are very busy this time of year, but I am not writing in request of any toys (although, I wouldn’t be opposed to an ice cream maker, nor a nice, new fluted pastry wheel….with which I could make you a delicious linzer tart). I am writing because I imagine that you must be the world’s utmost cookie expert. I would like nothing more for Christmas than your insight.
I expect with worldwide traveling and children leaving you cookies wherever you go, you consider yourself to be quite the cookie connoisseur and while, I’m sure you must enjoy cutout cookies decorated in your likeness (because who wouldn’t like a cookies made in their likeness?), what is you favorite cookie? I am partial to the Peanut Butter Blossom, although I’m not sure why those are associated with Christmas at all. I believe they should be an all occasion cookie. Thoughts?
What is the most interesting cookie you’ve ever tasted? One time, I made a chocolate chip cookie with potato chips in it, but I don’t think I’ll make them again and certainly won’t subject you to them on Christmas night. The chips turned soggy….and chewy. It was not one of my most successful culinary experimentations. Then again, I was twelve years old.
Does Martha Stewart leave you cookies? If so, what does she leave you? How do they compare to my cookies? Perhaps there is a Santa Privacy Clause, which contractually restricts you from divulging that sort of information. Anyway, I digress. These questions are neither here nor there.
Hypothetical: If one were to open a bakery, what cookies should the owner sell to best guarantee financial success? My guess is a bangin’ chocolate chip cookie… Can I use the work bangin’? Is that a naughty list word? I apologize if it is. The word “bangin’,” has become a qualifier of exceptional deliciousness at Corporate the Giant that has unfortunately slipped into my lexicon.
I would love to hear your thoughts and certainly hold your cookie insight in very high regard.
