Creative Cue #8 - COOKIE

Here is my offering for Creative Cue #8 - COOKIE. My mind immediately tried to think of some clever way of honoring cookie however this is what I came up with.
Some of my favorite cookies in photos, a recipe and my very favorite cherished "Oreo" cookie.
The "Oreo" cookie is actually a crocheted look-a-like "Oreo" that my Grandma made many years ago. She had become diabetic and still wanted her cookies so she crocheted some and kept them in the kitchen in the cookie jar. Now I shall savor it in my ode to cookie.
My personal favorite all time cookie is the Snickerdoodle. Lots of sugar and cinnamon and YUM! I learned how to make these when I was about 9 years old at a very basic two-story farm house in Marysville. To this day I do not know for certain whose house that was or who the lady was that took the time and patience to teach me how to bake these cookies but I am forever grateful. Talk about comfort food! This is the cookie I always make when I want to get back to basics and bake in the kitchen with the oven on and ingredients are all over the counters. Then I measure and mix and shape and bake. Then I eat them warm from the oven and cold from the pantry until they are all gone. Did I mention the dough is my very favorite to eat? It is no wonder my recipe never makes the three dozen it says it will make.
Do you eat cookie dough or wait until the cookies are baked or both?


  1. I used to eat raw cookie dough when i was a child, but it sends my stomach into convulsions these I am therefore forced to wait until the cookies are done! thanks for asking!

    love the scrapbooky cook bookie, cookie page!
    carmelina...have a nice weekend!

  2. I don't do it anymore because of some food allergies...but it the dough was always the best part.

    The "oreo" is so cute!

  3. I didn't know it was possible to bake cookies without sampling the dough....

  4. I always wait until they are baked but as soon as they are out of the oven I start eating them. As my children do as well. Your cookie page lokks really yummy.

  5. Hey, new to your blog but saw where you had visited me and had to come over.. Wow,, that's all I can say.. Your work is fantastic and lovely.. I do not eat the dough but my kids and grandkids love it.. Have a great Sunday and thanks for stopping by.

  6. Hi,

    Have a great day.
