Em, a reader and real-life recipe user, wrote in to say this about my Fourth of July Cookies:
After seeing the pictures of the process of making them, I had a dream that I made these cookies. I was disappointed when I woke up and there were none actually made! Darn.
Hey, Em. Darn, indeed! Check out this analysis of cookie-related dreams from the Dream Interpretation Dictionary:
To dream that you are eating, giving, receiving, or stealing cookies signifies that you will let trivial problems and minor disputes annoy you. To dream that you are baking cookies, signifies feelings of optimism or an increase in productivity. You may also experience a rise in status.
That, or maybe you just really wanted some cookies!
