Kookie. Kookie. Kookie.

The past couple of weeks, it feels as though our house has been filled with every germ imaginable.  

Fevers, Ear infections, Sinus infections, Laryngitis, Vomiting and Pneumonia.  And of course... Very. Little. Sleep.

I knew the kids were beginning to feel better when they started asking for cookies again... Or should I say, I realized how sick they were when they stopped asking for them in the first place.  

Either way... they were finally on the mend.  And I was overjoyed to fulfill their request for cookies.
I'm going to tell you a secret.

My two little Kidlets LOOOVE Cookies!

I am not sure if I should be proud, or embarrassed to tell you this, but the THIRD word my Son learned to say was Cookie.

Yes.  His third word...  

Our mornings usually commence something like this:

Sam wakes in the morning and runs out to the kitchen with a huge grin on his face.  He bends down in front of the oven, points to it and says Kookie.  Kookie.  Kookie.
One night after he realized I had turned on the oven to bake salmon (and not cookies), he dropped to the floor and cried. 

And I realized I may have a problem on my hands.
My Sister-in-Law {Zarine} said it best: 
"Jen, that boy may look like his Daddy, but the kid is all yours"  

She's right! 

I didn't tell her this, but after I pulled the salmon out of the oven that night, I dropped to the floor and cried too...  I also, really wanted cookies for dinner.
I love having freshly baked cookies in the house, but I can't bake an entire batch without having them disappear into my belly.

So, this is my solution

I make a batch cookies.  Portion it onto a cookie sheet.  Freeze for approximately 15 minutes until the cookies are semi-frozen.   Transfer the cookies into a Ziplock bag and return them to the freezer.
Bingo Bango.  

You can now have freshly baked cookies in no time.  They may still end up in  your tummy but just not all at once.

Unexpected guests?  No problem.  pull out half a dozen cookies.  Thaw for 15 minutes and bake. 
So go ahead.  Pour yourself a glass of milk.  Grab a cookie.  Eat.  Laugh.  Love.  And Enjoy!

Happy Tuesday!  :)
