The kitchen is not functioning and I can’t bake. Luckily, I like store bought packaged cookies. No matter what those copy cat recipes say, you can’t duplicate packaged cookies, especially the sandwich kind, in a home kitchen. Only loving robotic arms, belts, pulleys, conveyer belts and crème shooters can make the perfect Oreo. And I’m pretty sure that I, nor Paul Newman himself, could replicate a Newman’s Ginger Crème “O” at home.
Fuzz is enjoying the packaged cookies as well. I’m trying not to be bothered by the fact that she seems to like them more than homemade. Last week she was really into Lu brand “Little School Boys“. Her enthusiasm has dropped considerably now that we’ve told her they are not made from real school boys.
Those three, Oreos, Ginger Cremes and Little School Boys our favorites. Today, they were joined by a new cookie on the block called “Cheekys”. I found the Cheekys on the Hebrew Foods aisle at the new H.E.B. grocery. Okay, I’m exaggerating. There’s not a whole aisle of Hebrew Foods but rather about 1/8 of an aisle with some foods from Israel. The Cheekys label is written in Hebrew, so I have no idea what’s in them. Whatever they’re made of, it can’t be that bad since they are made under strict orthodox supervision….right? If you’d like to buy your own package of Cheekys, click here.
