If you're like me and you often find yourself longing for past that you were never a part of—days when a trip to the movies could be payed in change, juice was actually made with fruit, and milk came fresh at your doorstep every morning without fail. That last one is something I've dwelled on for years, having grown up in a house with an abandoned milk drop box, I never understood where all the milkmen went, and why no one appreciated fresh milk anymore.
Today we honor those long lost lactose liaisons, and the ice cold milk they brought the kind folks of way back when, with the milk's best friend: homemade cookies. Whether you are a dunker or glugger, there's no doubt that cookies just aren't the same without a glass of milk to wash them down.
Fresh out of the Celebrations oven we have these Cookie Bars from baking queen Patti Allan. Jam packed with chocolate chips, these gooey, square-shaped cookies are perfect for bake sales, potlucks, office parties, and lonely nights in front of a television!
These Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies are sure to bring back fond memories of after school snacks and midday recess, or perhaps help you make some new memories with your own little ones. Peanut butter loves milk just as much as cookies love milk, so when the two are combined in these sweet and salty treats, you better have a gallon or two on hand.
Coryanne Ettiene offers a subtle, yet flavorful twist on classic chocolate chip cookies. These Chocolate Nutella Cookies are a double whammy, offering the bittersweet taste of chocolate, and the creamy, slightly nutty, European style Nutella. Pair with an ice cold glass of milk—if they even make it off the cookie sheet!
Patti Allan strikes again with this recipe for S'mores Cookies that both kids and adults will enjoy. No bonfire necessary for these camp-inspired cookies, though I wouldn't be surprised if you suddenly got the urge to sleep out under the stars after snacking on a few of these marshmallow topped treats.
