Yesterday I got a package from my friend Joyce who recently made a short yet fulfilling visit to New York City. In the package were a quite bit of fun and yummy stuff from NYC, along which she had included bags of cookies from La Brea Bakery. She apparently remembered that both he and I loved their ginger cookies that she had sent me before; this time she'd kindly sent me other kinds for us to sample: oatmeal raisin, maple pecan hearts, and peanut butter cookies along with the ginger cookies. We couldn't do but try them all upon arrival, and all of them proved to be delicious. I particularly liked peanut butter cookies (real peanut butter sandwiched with chunky peanut butter cookies) and maple pecan hearts (short-bread-y cookies with a golden combo of pecans and maple syrup) besides ginger cookies (not a hype, only for true ginger lovers-kind of ginger snap cookies, really gingery), although oatmeal raisin cookies were very tasty (more oatmeal-y than most of other commercially available fellow cookies). Well, basically, they were all really good, if you know what I mean. Plus, all of them were quite big and filling that we were pretty satisfied after sampling one of each kind.
Thus we had some more cookies left for today, which I had for breakfast - who said you can't have cookies for breakfast?
