COOKIES! What can I say - I LOVE them!!! I loved them so much as a little girl that Mom called me her "cookie" girl. My love of cookies knew no bounds. When Mom was heading to the grocery store I would tell her to get my cookies. When she returned I would not let her into the house until she showed me the package of cookies!
My favorites back then were Fudge Stripes, Chips Ahoy!, Deluxe Grahams, Oreos, Pinwheels, and Lorna Doone. A couple others I loved but I don't remember their names. One had a vanilla wafer-type base, with a little raspberry (strawberry?) plopped in the middle of the base, then on top of that was mashmallow covered with coconut. Anyone remember the name of this cookie? Another exists today but the formula seems to be different than when I was young. It's Archway's Dutch Cocoa. These used to have powdered sugar on top. I would crumble these cookies up in a glass of milk - oh YUM! I'm drooling just thinking about it!
And guess what! Even today I'm a cookie girl! Love 'em! I think my favorite store-bought cookie today is the original Chips Ahoy!. It has changed little over the years, whereas the other childhood favorites just don't seem the same.
Oh darn, now I need to head to the store as I'm suddenly hungry for cookies!
