I think these cookies may be one of my favorite things. I have a cousin that as a kid I absolutely adored. I still love her! She was 5 years older than me, but she still played with me and my sister and her two little sisters every day in the summer when we were kids. We would canoe in my grandpa’s pond, ride bikes on the “Roller Coaster”, take long walks to the Love Bridge where we would write the name of the boys we loved, climb every tree at the family park, and run around without combing our hair all summer long. I learned from my cousin that lemons and rhubarb were delicious with salt, and every Fri. night we’d watch Solid Gold, Love Boat and then scare ourselves to death watching Fantasy Island. I had the best growing up.
A few of my all time favorite foods like cheesers, and tuna patties were introduces to me by this cousin. But the one food that always brings a smile to every one’s face is Pooh Cookies. I realize that technically these cookies should be called No Bake cookies, but that is just boring. They taste 10 times better if you call them Pooh Cookies. It makes you feel a little scandalous. All of a sudden plain becomes extra ordinary. I made these cookies for some Achievement Day girls last week, and the name brought smiles and giggles to every face. Shock someone the next time you make these cookies. Call them what you know you’ve been wanting to call them forever, but you just felt a little too modest, and refined. Pooh Cookies are perfect! Thanks Netty and I love you’re stinking guts!! PS you better come to the family reunion!! I’ve missed you!
