Happiness is a Warm Cookie

Posted on: September 20th, 2011 by Anthony Rapino 9 Comments

Sometimes I think the thing to do is open a cookie store.  I don’t have any formal business or culinary training, but somehow I don’t think it matters.  It’d be like a doughnut shop, only with cookies.  I’d have a dozen different kinds that are made each day, with a few seasonal ones that change.  Like pumpkin spice and apple cider walnut.  I’d call the place Cookies and Milk.  There’d be a little stage for open mic night and literary readings.  Every Halloween I would throw a huge party and give out goodie bags.  It wouldn’t make me rich, but it would be a living.  And it would be my place.

Sometimes I think that’d be the thing to do.  Because everyone likes cookies.

    Tired of the writing gig already? :o)

    A cookie shop sounds good. How many variety of cookies would you have?

    • Tire of writing? Never. 🙂 Oh, soooo many cookies. 2 dozen varieties. 3 dozen?

    I’m too round around the middle to really enjoy a cookie though that obviously doesn’t stop me. ☺

    Actually sounds perfect for you! If I know you though, you’d still be writing alongside the baking.

    You could even off ice cream cookies in the cooler months. (Hugs)Indy

    • Oh heck no, I couldn’t stop writing. In truth, I think the only way I’d ever be able to open a cookie shop is if I made obscene amounts of money from writing. So two impossible goals. :-p

  4. Pumpkin spice and apple cider walnut? You’ve got me drooling!

    • Ha! Yeah, this time of year, autumn themed food is all I can think about. Well, that and Halloween. And horror movies. And…okay, okay. I lied. it’s not all I think about.

    What a Mouth watering idea. I’d definitely have to jump over that small lake between us to sample your hospitality – and it has absolutely nothing to do with the the pumpkin spice and apple cider walnut…lol

    • You’re welcome any time! 🙂 Cookies are a constant.
