That's the Way the Cookie Crumbles

Saturday, after grocery shopping at Harris Teeter, I stopped by the in-store Starbucks to use an about-to-expire gift card. I don't drink coffee, so I bought two slices of coffee cake and one molasses cookie, all of which I intended to share with Ben. But I was really hungry on my way home, so I broke of my half of the cookie and ate it. Then I broke of half of Ben's half of the cookie and ate it. I think you know where this is going.

This was the best molasses cookie I have ever had: soft and chewy and very evenly baked, with a very mellow flavor. Some molasses cookies can be kind of harsh and bitter, but this one was very rich, smooth and gingery, and yet not too sweet. Also, it was perfectly circular, which is impressive, I think.

I'd intended to post a picture of this masterpiece confection, but by the time I got home, there was no cookie left to photograph. Except for this crumb here. Which I ate as soon as the picture was taken.

Sorry, Ben. You can have the next one.

The food: Starbucks Molasses Cookie
The verdict: Two crumbs up!

Ha! I second the welcome -- is this going to be solely a food critiquing blog? Very intriguing. ;) I also am now craving some cookies... sounds yummy! I haven't had a molasses cookie in so long -- they're not one of Matt's favs (and trust me, there are not that many cookies he doesn't like.) LOL.

Love ya tons and miss you more. Hope things are going well.
