The thought has occurred to me..."what if the cookies taste terrible...or I get food poisoning...or what if they arrive in crumbs...?" Can you tell I'm a worrier? If they taste terrible or arrive in crumbs it just means less junk in my trunk if you know what I mean. And if I get food poisoning....again...looking at the positive - a few pounds lost is never a bad thing.
I'm sure it'll be fine. And I'm SURE they will LOVE my cookies. In fact I'm so sure they'll get addicted to them that I'll be sending the recipe along with them. Believe you me (I've always wanted to say this....but what does it mean???) they are scrumptious.
'Tis the season to eat cookies - so go on now! Get your bake on!
