So I was sitting here thinking about dream jobs.  Number one was veterinarian, but number two was bakery owner.  Neither of those is probably surprising, but alas, obviously I have way too much time on my hands. So going along with my daydream, being a vet is out. The closest vet school is  A&M.  Can’t just pack up my family and move closer.  So that leaves dream job number two. Which would also require moving. I live in a very populated city and I honestly don’t think a private bakery would do well in this area.  However, I have the perfect place picked out and I’d be moving to a smaller town.  YAY!  Bonus! 

So assuming I did this, which I’m not going to do because again…moving….family…etc. I decided I’d serve only cookies since that is my specialty. So my fictional menu would consist of:

  1. Oatmeal Raisin Pecan Cookies
  2. Oatmeal Cranberry and White Chocolate Chip Cookies (with pecans of course)
  3. Evil Cookies (my version of chocolate chip, so named because they are so evil you can’t eat just one, did I mention these too have pecans?)
  4. Peanutbutter Cookies
  5. Thumbprint Cookies (peanut butter and chocolate)
  6. M&M Cookies
  7. Chocolate Cayenne Cookies with White Chocolate Chip and Pecan 
  8. Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies (of course you know there are pecans in there, right?)
  9. Frosted Sugar Cookies
  10. Snickerdoodles
  11. Plain ole Chocolate Chip Cookies
  12. Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies (with white chocolate chips and you guessed it…pecans)
  13. Puppy Cookies ( for puppy’s, no pecans 🙂 )

Hmmm…  I’m seeing a pattern here.  I seem to be prejudiced towards those with nut allergies 😉 

All kidding aside, it’s nice to dream  and since I cannot open my own bakery, I’ll just have to write some characters that are cookie chefs.  🙂

I’ve included links to recipes for several of the cookies I’ve listed here. If you’d like to see a recipe for any of the others, drop me a line in the comments.
