Goodness, these Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies (photographed and shared by VeryCulinary, created by Picky Palate) certainly do look like cookie perfection, don’t they? Expert multi-taskers, they’ve streamlined dessert by combining two cookies into one, neat, organized little tidy package.
Actually, when I think about it that way, these cookies sort of make me feel like a slacker. I mean, they’re just cookies, and yet they’re already being more productive than I am just by sitting there on a plate.
I sort of prefer this deflated double cookie, or better yet, this entire TRAY of melted, mushed-up chocolatey non-perfection sent in by reader Alissa:
Now THAT is a cookie I can sink my teeth into. It isn’t intimidating, and it isn’t making me feel inferior just because I’m eating a whole tray of cookies while (still) wearing my PJs at 4 PM. In fact, Alissa’a cookies look exactly how I feel when I sink into the couch to watch some TV for eight or twelve hours. Laid back little lumps – just like me.
