My thoughts
These were mentioned in passing as a favourite cookie and I just took note and filed that info away until the right time. Reviews were “these are awesome and you’re the best” and “I never expected these on top of dinner.” I also tucked one away for a co-worker who loves sweets. The review was “surprisingly soft; as I was expecting a firmer cookie”. I enjoyed a halfie (half of a sandwich cookie) and it was soft and very tasty; as my first time making this it came out so good.
