Day 49- Made Cookies for the Police

Made Cookies for the Police
I like cookies. I assume everyone likes cookies.

I wanted to make cookies for the police in Howard County, but I was very afraid they would be thrown out. I doubted if the police would trust a stranger dropping off food at the station. I didn't want them to think they were poisoned or something. Hmm how to get my cookies to the police.

Good News: One of the Do Good Crew- Megan works for the Police. YAY. And Megan is in my writers group and promised to deliver the cookies.

One my last free day off due to the snow, I baked 48 pillsubury break and bake cookies and 16 other cookies. Not all the cookies made it into the container. Some were too yummy and I had to taste them for quality control. Others didn't look pretty.
The first batch was very soft and smooshy--- my favorite kind.
The second batch was a littler crispier.
The third batch was the most crispy but not burnt-- that's a big fear of mine.

I wrote a note thanking the police for all their hard work and explaining that the cookies get softer the further down in the container you go.

According to Meghan they were a huge hit. People stopped by to say thank you. Very cool.

Would I do it again: Sure.
Cost: $10 in materials- the break and bakes were not on sale according to my husband.
Effort: Preheating the oven and carefully placing them on the cooling rack without breaking them
Time: About an half an hour.


  1. Cookies are the best. Everyone loves cookies. =-)

  2. I've never met a cookie I didn't like. ;-)
