There are all kinds of cookies of course – the delicious kind and the computer kind. I suppose you could call the latter, virtual cookies.

Computer Cookies are bits of personal information stored on your computer’s web browser. Some cookies are helpful, such as those that store your passwords or user names with your permission. Others are useful because they allow your favorite sites to tailor certain website data to your preferences.

HOLIDAY COOKIES – THE REAL THINGS!

Yes, cookies are all different and the diversification is never more evident than in the weeks before the holidays.  I have begun my yearly Battle of the Bulge by baking and then trying to ignore the aromas in the kitchen and the grumblings in my gut.  Determined to exercise the ultimate will power, I continue making macaroons and ginger snaps and chocolate chip delights, and put them all up in lovely tins for my lovely family and friends.

“Just one taste,” I think – “to make sure they are all right.”  And that leads to two or more tastes and then at least two or more whole cookies guiltily devoured.

“This one broke so it would be a shame to throw it away. Boy, those are good.  One more won’t hurt!”  Do you know the drill?

THE UN-COOKIE SOLUTION

I will now let you in on a monumental secret.  It’s a cookie minus a key ingredient – an ingredient shunned and banned by beleaguered dieticians and health food experts.  This deadly ingredient in most other cookies is guaranteed to vastly increase the caloric value of a holiday treat and especially guaranteed to generate guilt in the holiday chef who is accustomed to “tasting.”

What is it you ask?

FLOUR!

I wonder how they would turn out with fake sugar instead of the real thing.  Then I could enjoy the whole tin!

HAPPY TASTING!  HAPPY BAKING!  HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU TOO!
