Cookie Questions

1. Do you eat Oreos?
Not regularly 

2.  If you eat Oreos, which are your favorite – original, double stuff, golden original, golden double stuff, Oreo brownies, Oreo ice cream?
Home made Oreo Ice Cream

3.  Do you twist your Oreos apart?
Yes, most of the time, if and when I eat them; I just like the cookie parts.

4.  Are you able to pass by a plate of cookies and not take one or are you a bit of a 'Cookie Monster'? 
I like cookies.  But, if there aren't many left, I'll leave them for the others.

5.  Tell us about your favorite cookie. Crunchy, soft, chewy, crumbly, other?
My favorite cookie is a brownie.  And then there are the soft and chewy Oatmeal cookies.

6. Have your tastes changed since you were a kid?
No, except that I don't crave as many sweet things as when I was a kid.

7.  Enquiring minds want to know if you are a dunker and, if so, do you dunk in milk, coffee, or tea?
I'm just not a dunker.

8.  It is that time of year and they are selling them on every corner and in front of every store!  Do you buy Girl Scout cookies and if you do, which is your favorite?  
When our cutie pie little nieces were selling them we bought them - otherwise, no. And I have no favorite.

9.  Raw cookie dough.  Yay or Nay?  
Nay.. It's the raw egg.  Can't handle that anymore.  Too Risky.

10.  Do you like cookies with filling?
Only one.. (Though other people's answers will probably jog my memory.)
My Great Aunt Becky used to make cherry preserves cookies.  Those are the only ones I've ever made on my own.  She and my mother both made them with mother's preserved cherries.  I loved Aunt Becky. She tried to take up the slack, for both me and my mom, when Grandma died way too young.  Same age as Laura.

11.  Do you prefer organic cookies?
Yes.  I prefer everything to be Organic.  Even soap!

12.  Large cookies, or small cookies?
Size doesn't matter, as long as I can have twice as many little ones if they are little.

13.  Do you like familiar flavours in cookies?
I will try any cookie that smells good.  

14.  Do you make your own cookies, or buy them?
Anymore, I don't bake or buy cookies unless we are on a road trip, and we get them at a bakery.  The last time that I baked cookies was in a parking lot at Lake Tahoe, in my rig on a very cold day.  I packaged some up and left them as a present on the door knob of a tiny two person van for some kids who were also traveling and had parked overnight where we were.  

15.  Please tell us something random about your week!! 
I finally mended two sheets, and took more pictures of the backyard bunnies, tried to come to terms with how willfully ignorant people can destroy the only planet with chocolate and baby animals, and fretted a lot about the mess in Washington D.C..   
I thought about those out there giving each other nice parties and presents, and living in complete confidence that they got it right........  I have a lot of other random things to say about this, because I am determined to care about other people's children.  However, I stripped it out.  


  1. Pity about the cookie dough / raw egg thing - raw biscuit dough is the best bit about making biscuits.

    1. Oh Pandora, I couldn't agree more! yes! Bring back the healthy egg! 😊

  2. Cherry preserves cookies sound yummy! Have a great Sunday!

    1. They are yummy. Sadly, I only made them once for my own kiddies.. Hope you day has been great! 😊

  3. I ignore the warnings about the eggs and eat the raw dough anyway, if I am making the cookies. I had more to say in my last answer too that I removed. Sometimes I have keep it to myself.

    1. Yes, if you are eating the cookies, and the eggs are not factory farmed, you are safer... I just don't know how much. lol.
      I've got this ultra umbrage taking physical form that cannot stand, apparently, a single little microbe out of place, so I've stopped eating anything with raw egg in it.
      About the "less said.. thing"... At this point, I just want to help save the children, and I'm focused on that. Bone Headed people and Greedy Guts are a bad mix. I can still hear the mooing from here, and it sickens me.

  4. I don't bake often, I kind of miss it but not the mess and hassle that goes with it. :)

    1. Mess and hassle. Oh yes. *slaps forehead*
      I'm thinking that I'll do it in steps. Like, maybe, I'll make the dough, roll it up, scoop it up, and then stick it in the freezer. Then...I'll clean up the mess. Go rest and a few days later, go bake a half dozen cookies in the toaster oven whenever we want a treat. 🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪 Otherwise I can't handle it.

  5. I do not get to bake much anymore, it just takes too much time and I am usually so tired after work. I am on Spring Break, it would be nice if I could bake this week, but we have to be somewhere almost every day. UGH! Loved your answers! Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!


    1. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, too! Baking is a big mess, but worth it if you can rest between rounds. lol
      Oh ouch! Wish you some Rest from all the running around you have to do this week. That's not fair! Ugh is right. 😬

  6. Sometimes I think that it's my responsibility as an adult and a voter to keep up with world events. But the other morning, after New Zealand, I discovered a rerun of the original Magnum PI and I watched that instead of the news shows. I needed that respite, you know?

    1. I know Exactly how you feel.
      I will keep hoping and praying that the people sowing these seeds of hatred and fanning the flames of destruction will not succeed.
      They mean to keep us at each other's throats so they can steal the rest of our children's futures while our attention is elsewhere.
      It's time they were stopped. They are not that hard to thwart. Every eligible voter should be asking themselves if they can afford to blow off another election. We have to make sure that, say, another 10,000 eligible voters aren't stricken from the lists by some crooked officials in the dark of the moon.
      This is our Country. We need to stand up and ROAR for it. Otherwise, we deserve what we get. But, the Kids sure don't. So think of them when you are electing a brigand by stealth. I'm sorry to go off on you like that.. I need to go watch Magnum PI.

  7. Oh, you've made me hunger with the talk of cherry filled cookies. Dad loved raisin filled ones and I think those are awful so Mom always made some with cherry filling and apricot filling. Those cookies mean Christmas to me.

    1. They were like little pies, and so good. I need to bake and eat a few thousand cookies! Yummy stuff... I'm going into retreat most of the week. Need to get my heart settled so as to not feel so sick all the time. Maybe a few dozen cookies would be just the ticket. Hope you have a good week. Don't work too hard Stacy.

  8. The meme at the end there, about profit over the world, man, that's so freaking accurate. Good post.

    1. Thank you. J. I swear all Trump has to do is take a violin, and it will complete the full picture. Or, perhaps he will start wearing an olive branch "tiara". God what a criminal enterprise... Handmaiden of the Russian Mob that he is.

  9. Brownies sound quite yummy right now. I will have to make some this weekend.
