I almost called this post something punny like "Excidered About Cider" but reconsidered...
It turns out people l-o-v-e-d my Mulled Apple Cider Cookies. In fact, the three dozen or so I brought in to work disappeared around noon. Here's what a few of my real-life cookie-eating coworkers had to say:
“These were SOOOOOO good!! I'm going to have to try to make them at home. Yummy!”
“btw, i LOVED the cookies today. i think i'm a sucker for anything apple-related...apple cider, apple pie, and now apple cider cookies! mmm sooo gooood.”
And here's what Laura and Chris, neighbors, readers, and real-life cookie tasters had to say:
“Jason [our doorman] just buzzed me and I got the cookies! Ran downstairs, thought the good cookie delivery man [Jon] might be downstairs but he was gone. Oh my gosh Greg, these Apple Cider Cookies are amazing! I absolutely LOVE them! Ate one in the elevator and will leave some for the Cookie Monster who I recently discovered (because of you) lives with me [Chris, Laura’s husband]. These are so delicious, they were almost wet inside from the applely (a word?) goodness and were crisp and sweet outside. Now I have another one to add to my list of favorites.”
Thanks, everybody! I'm so glad you liked them. You've really got to try making these cookies--especially around the holidays. Your house will smell soooo good and Thanksgivingy or Christmassy. Forget the scented candles; bake cookies instead!
