Remember when I made Jason the Giant Mall Cookie for his birthday?
I had a craving for one yesterday. One we could enjoy while watching The Office series finale. Jason and I have watched this series from the beginning, way back in early 2005.
I ended up baking this cookie in a pie dish, so it’s wedges are a bit more… hefty. We split one.
Then we split another one.
With the oatmeal and the cashews and the dark chocolate, these are practically a health food. Not that I care – I wanted a comfort food cookie to distract from the fact that there will be no more Jim and Pam, no more hilarious Creed, and no more weekly Ed Helms.
and a reminder of Deangelo Jeremitrius Vickers. I like everything Will Ferrell does.
