Cookies!!! Umm-num-num-num-num!


Published:

November 10 is a day that changed my life forever. Why? On November 10, 1969, the beloved television program Sesame Street was first aired. Now, I’m not saying I was alive in 1969, but Sesame Street was a staple of my childhood, and continues to be popular today. Did they know in 1969 that Kermit and Big Bird would become international stars and heroes? Did they know that so many of us would share a kinship with a monster who ate cookies?

So, in honor of Sesame Street’s 41st Anniversary, today’s blog will be devoted to one of my favorite monsters and his favorite treat: cookies. The cookies I’ve highlighted here are whipped up in Twin Cities bakeries, where traditional cookie flavors are combined with sustainable practices for a tasty result.

• Iced Ginger Cookie at the French Meadow: Yes, they have chocolate chip for Cookie Monster as well, but I like their frosted ginger cookie, big enough to share.

• Short bread at Salty Tart: While Cookie Monster would probably prefer their heaping platters of Double Chocolate Chunk cookies at Salty Tart, I go for the simple shortbread cookies when they’re available.

• Molasses Cookies at Trotters: A classic, spiced cookie, great with a glass of chilled milk or a hot cup of Peace coffee.

Have you got a favorite cookie spot in the Twin Cities? Please share! And in the meantime, now that we’re all thinking about cookies, anyone want to sing a song with me?
