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.

    I never cared for those big mall cookie cake things – well, I didn’t like the icing on them I should say. Something weird about it. These look fantastic. Part brownie part cookie. Happy Friday – been thinking about you. I hope things are ok for you and your dad.

    Holy YUM!!! This is spawning an idea for Scott’s upcoming birthday! I think I’ll create a cookie concoction in a pie dish too and put a big ‘ol scoop of homemade ice cream on top! Last year I did the ice cream sandwiches, this year it’s the mall cookie — thanks to YOU!! I’ll let you know how he reacts, it’s a couple weeks away :)

      Jason LOVED his birthday cookie last year – when I asked what kind of cake I could make him, he said “giant mall cookie” :)

    Oooooooooohhhhh this looks lovely! I’ve been on a big cashew-love trip lately, especially since the cashew butter arrived which I ordered from Amazon. Peter loves cashews as well, we always have a big jar in the shelf from which he likes to snack. :)
