Cookies


Cookies & Milk
Freshly Baked
Frozen
Holidays
Frosting
From the store

The List Goes On

Some I like
Chocolate Chip
Macaroons
Thin Mints
Peanut Butter
Snicker Doodles
Scotchies
Haystacks
Oatmeal Raisin

The List Goes On

You eat them
With milk
With tea
In your lunch
At celebrations
After school
In the Park

The List Goes On

You share them
Family
Friends
Classmates
Strangers
By yourself
With your children

The List Goes On

You make memories of
Shared times
When they baked
Who made them
Whose recipe
Who ate them
Where they were

The List Goes On
Until the memories stop.

  1. Indeed! There is a cookie song in the Frog & Toad Musical I took Ingrid to last weekend. You will like it, Ruth! I like that 'broader' concept at the end! Thanks! (I have a wonderful recipe for gingersnaps, if you'd like it.)

  2. I would love your gingersnap recipe. One of my favorite kids songs is "Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar."

  3. My sister gave me Martha Stewart's Cookie book with 175 recipes, and a friend brought Southern Cookies with 50 recipes. My girls and I have fun trying out new cookies, yet there are some recipes from childhood that we keep baking more often than others.

    There is something about cookies! I remember the first time my Mother got the recipe for Mexican Wedding Cakes. I loved them. I ate too many and got sick. Oh they were so good though.

  5. I have not had a homemade cookie fragrance at home since my daughter left for England. Perhaps I need to bake some....

  7. This is such a fun poem about such a real-life item! The students would surely love this, and it made me drool as I miss all things made with real flour since having to transition to gluten-free living. GF cookies are just not quite the same. My list of types of cookies I can eat has shrunken exponentially. It was fun to be reminded of some of my old favorites through your words!

  9. Love this post - the act of baking, in our house, always connects to memories...just as your poem captured.
