I've had more cringe-worthy moments than I care to admit in the past couple of days.
Today I was out shopping and noticed an intriguing item on a clearance rack, buried under other a number of other items. You see what's coming, right? I grabbed the item I was looking at and sent a penguin cookie jar flying. I watched in slow-motion as it arced up, hit the ground, bounced, and then shattered.
I felt terrible (still feel terrible), found an employee, apologized profusely, and walked away hanging my head in shame.
What does this all have to do with cookies? (Aside from the sacrificial cookie jar.) Nothing. Other than that I over-analyze and hang onto trivial things for far too long, and cookies make me feel better. Maybe they make you feel better too.
If so, you should try making Springerles. They are tasty little tiles, lightly licorice flavored, and perfect for dunking in your morning coffee or tea.
