Dawn, a really cool reader (and now a real-life cookie tester) from Charlotte, North Carolina, emailed me to say that she was going to make my Golden Girls cookies for the teachers at her son’s school. She made an ingenious twist on my original recipe and used chocolate graham crackers instead of the standard cinnamon grahams. (Seriously…how cool is that!?) She wrote back to let me know how they turned out:
"In big letters ‘THANK YOU!’ is what teachers had to say! Another girlfriend that I shared some with said it was her favorite of all time (and I bake for her a LOT!). Well, well, looks like I've got another induction into my ‘Winners’ notebook! Thank you, Greg [Oatmeal Cookie Guy]! Next up, I'm trying that German Chocolate yummy!"
Three cheers to you, Dawn. You did an awesome job, and the pic you sent (below) proves it!
