Paula, a reader from Maryland, left the following comment on my United States of Oatmeal Cookies post:
“I LOVE reading your blog! It is one of my food favorites, mostly because I have a weakness for great cookies! I am from Maryland, and I hope you won't attempt crab cookies. (MD is famous for its crabs.) I'm sure we must be famous for something else, but I can't thing of what it would be that would make great cookies. Anyway, just wanted you to know, and only wish I lived closer so I could test out your cookies!”
Thanks, Paula! You really, really made my day.
Maryland...that's another M state! I just did a little research, and it looks like mixed berries would totally work for a Maryland-themed cookie. But I have to admit that a savory cookie filled with crab and Old Bay seasoning could be really tasty. Hmm...
If you're ever in NYC, I'd love for you to become a real-life cookie taster!
