C Is For Cookie. That’s Good Enough For Me!



I haven’t had a cookie in a really long time and I think I must be nearing my breaking point because at this moment in time I can only think about one thing – and that one thing is ALL THE COOKIES!

I blame all the posts about Holiday Baking that keep popping up in my timelines.

I know an awful lot of Cookie Monster enablers, I fear.

I am at once thrilled and disappointed that most of them are far away.

Clearly, I am conflicted.

So what is a Cookie Monster who’s gone right off cookies, to do?

How can I get my thoughts out of my head while keeping my cookie cravings at bay?


I’ve got it!

I can share some of the delicious theoretical cookies with you! Then you will be thinking about ALL THE COOKIES and I won’t have to bear this burden all by my cookie-denying lonesome.

*thumbs up*

So, without further ado, I give you my current cookie obsessions.

First there was this little Toblerone enhanced gem from Rebecca at A Little Bit of Momsense.

Then, this beauty popped up in my Facebook timeline, shared by Candace from Life in Pleasantville. It is sure to be a hit with the kids. Especially if you go for the giant cookie technique that Kelly shares!

Finally, (Well, for now at least, but I’m not making any promises!) Momstown Halifax shared this very easy, yet very pretty cookie that would be so fun to make with your Things! It came from the lovely people at CBC Parents.


And here’s a little something to do during this upcoming Holiday season. You know, in your spare time.

Whew! I feel much better now.



Sorry**, for dropping all of that on you at once, but I feel so much better now.

Wouldn’t you agree these are worthy cookies to share?

If you’re a smart cookie, you will!

Either way, now you can have all my cookie thoughts and hopefully I will have fewer.

It’s a devious kind of kindness, but it’s ultimately out of love that I share these things.

If you don’t like it, well … I guess it’s true what they say.

That’s the way the – wait for it – COOKIE crumbles! *wink*

About Peadyhttp://temperedwithkindness.comI’m sensitive and I’d like to stay that way.

  1. Cookie monster is my fav sesame street character. I may just be like him. I wrote w post about me being the real cookie monster. Hehe.

    Now I want a cookie…

  2. He’s my second favorite muppet…Super Grover being my first. You can have a cookie in moderation, just buy one at a bakery or Tims. Just own one and get it out of your system.

    • I love Super Grover, too! 😀

      I can’t actually. I just can’t.

      Eventually, I’ll make a mean GF one and be doomed all over again, but for now I’ll just keep ogling recipes!


    • They are very pretty and extremely easy. The best combo!

      I think if the sprinkles were replaced with sugar crystals they’d be so grown-up and gorgeous!

    • Honestly, the key factor is a gluten intolerance. 😦

      I’d rather eat a cookie, trust me.

      On the cookie-free upside, I bought jeans today and they are size smaller than I expected them to be. So, YAY!

    • Sooooo many cookies to make! I can’t even eat your shortbreads, but I am absolutely making them to share with friends and family.

      That is a fabulous recipe!

      Happy December, Bitsy!

    • Same, here!

      Sugar is so problematic, but I think I am learning how to have a small amount now and then.. as opposed to all of it all the time. 😀

      I agree, though, Christmastime is for happy holiday memories and a LOT of mine are attached directly to sugar via delicious baked goodies. So, I try to bake some memories of my own from the past and make new ones for my kiddos.

      It is helpful to bake and take to give away! 😀

      We will be making treats for teachers this week! It’s better than “stuff” and hopefully it makes for some happy tummies.

      Thank you so much for visiting! It really means a lot!
