When they come out of the oven, you have dozens of yummy cookies just waiting to be shared. Most people won't refuse a homemade cookie when it is offered them, and it almost always brings a smile to their face. :)
So let's recap.
- We have happiness in sharing the cookie creation process.
- Our kitchen smells better than any fancy scents you can buy.
- We multiply happiness when we share the cookies.
What's not to like? Cookies are happiness that you can eat. :)
Apparently, I am not the only person who knows this secret. The governor of North Carolina, a Republican by the name of Pat McCrory obviously recognizes the Power of the Cookie. When pro-abortion protesters demonstrated outside the governor's mansion, he came out, walked half way across the street to meet a protester, handed her a plate of cookies with the wish, "These are for you. God bless you. God bless you. God bless you."
Obviously, this was not the response she expected. It's nearly impossible to hate someone who just gave you cookies. The protesters were in confusion....the protest spluttered...everybody went home 8 hours early.
Behold! The Power of Cookies. :)
