Cookies are happiness. Cookies are magical. And cookies are life. You can make anything into a cookie. I wasn’t sure why this warranted explanation, but my brother-in-law seemed to be missing out on one of the finer points in life.
Not EVERYTHING . . . he smirked at me in that I’m-the-big-brother-I-know-better-than-you kinda way that makes me want to prove him wrong, no matter the ridiculousness. Either that or punch him in the nose, but I generally frown upon violence. Even if it is in the pursuit of advocating for cookies.
Yes. EVERYTHING. Even crazy stuff. Like . . . I floundered around for a bit, trying to think of something out-there . . . corn dogs cookies. Corn dog cookies would be delicious. Debate broke loose in the car. A car filled with two lawyers, a brother-in-law who likes to stoke the fire, and one peace-making preschool teacher so supportive she belongs in Hufflepuff.
Kaela, corn dog cookies would NOT be good.
Oh, yes they would, dear sweet disbelieving husband.
Not even a little bit. You can’t put hot dogs in a cookie.
Why not, Pete? Corn dog batter is sweet. A cornmeal based cookie dough could crisp up just like a corn dog. You could even dip it in mustard.
That is the most disgusting thing I’ve ever heard.
I glare at my husband, communicating with my eyes exactly how much space he will have on his side of the bed, tonight.
Now, now . . . maybe she can make a corn dog cookie. I mean, I’m willing to suspend judgment and try anything at least once.
Thank you, Andie, for being supportive. If only my HUSBAND could manage the same.
I will NOT support corn dog cookies.
Dear readers. I know you may be sitting on either side of the corn dog cookie fence. Just stick with me for two shakes. Think about everything we loved about a corn dog as a kid: slightly sweet, slightly salty corn meal coating. crispy exterior. soft, light interior. grilled, juicy hot dog. How does this not beg for a cookie experiment?
Let me know what side of the fence you decide to step down on and even if it’s not on my side, please please please promise you’ll still come back and trust in all my other fantastic cookie recipes. 🙂
