Recently I took an online quiz on what cookie my personality is most like.
I was pegged as a Christmas Cookie.
While I absolutely love Christmas, I’m not sure I completely agree with these results. In my opinion, if I were a cookie, I would be a chocolate chip cookie with a dash of cinnamon.
Chocolate chip cookies have been my favorite type of cookie since I was a little girl. (In fact, I’m low-key enjoying a chocolate chip cookie dough Quest Bar as I type this.) They’ve got the perfect level of classic, decadent flavors (ie. chocolate and vanilla), yet can be easily altered with the addition of walnuts or oats to transform them into an entirely different tasting cookie.
Additionally, like me, chocolate chip cookies require a balance. Just as I’m a mess if I try to wear myself to thin or do two many things at once, chocolate chip cookies can only be made with so much of every ingredient before you’re left with a crumbly glop.
And when I get down to it, I really wouldn’t ever prefer another cookie more than I would a chocolate chip- after all, it contains chocolate!
And on that note, who wouldn’t want to enjoy a big bowl of chocolate chip cookie oatmeal in the morning?!
Especially if it only had 150 calories and was made with plenty of chocolate chips? 😉
Show me a Christmas Cookie that has that going for it!
