Bonus Batch: Our Favorite Cookies Through the Year
Rachel: Hey Lu, what’s your favorite Girl Scout Cookie?
Luisa: I’d have to say Thin Mints...but Samoas are a close second! What about yours?
Rachel: Peanut Butter Patties. Your favorite supermarket cookie? Mine is Oreos or Milanos.
Luisa: I would also have to say Milanos! I could also inhale an entire tin of Danish cookies though. Rachel, what’s your favorite Christmas cookie?
Rachel: Oh that’s hard….either a chocolate chai or linzers. I like using up leftover jams. Apparently I have a jam issue. Yours?
Luisa: It’s another tie for me (is that getting annoying yet?) between a classic rolled sugar cookie and raspberry jam thumbprint cookies. What about if someone asks you to bake cookies...what do you bring?
Rachel. Giant chocolate chips….you?
Luisa: I would also go for a chocolate chip or a snickerdoodle, both are usually crowd pleasers.
Rachel: What do you think….are macarons patisserie or a fancy cookie?
Luisa: Haha! Now I’m not sure about that one...
Rachel: In America, I’m going to go with a fancy cookie.
