Yesterday, as I was waiting for my iced soy hazelnut latte at my local coffee shop, the Barrista behind the counter had a bag full of “cookie crumbles” he was about the throw away. The broken pieces of cookie were still in perfectly good condition, they were just not whole enough to sell. And so, he willingly gave me two bags full of cookie pieces, as to avoid wasting the delicious desserts.
I brought the mixture of cinnamon-raison and double chocolate chunk cookies back to work with me, and my fellow employees devoured them without a second thought. This got me thinking: cookies are almost impossible to turn down.
There are so many delicious kinds of cookies: from classic chocolate chip to chunky peanut butter cup to minty milano melts.
But the one cookie that gives advice, and has a tasty cake-like crunch, is the fortune cookie.
Whenever I get Chinese food I look forward to the fortune cookie for dessert. The little message inside is bound to make me smile in some way, whether it be because it actually makes sense, or because it’s so far off that I just have to laugh. My latest fortune I found inside a fortune cookie: “warning, do not eat your fortune”.
