This week’s cookie choice explanation written as an equation:
a request for shortbread cookies + the arrival of Girl Scout cookie order forms = Classic Shortbread cookies dipped in chocolate
So another suggestion leads to another idea – recreating (as much as I can) Girl Scout cookies. The Girl Scouts call their shortbread cookies with chocolate the Thanks-A-Lot™. I doubt they’ll be saying that once they find out I don’t work at Shaws anymore and won’t be buying a box every time they set up shop by the exit.

Melt some baking chocolate and dip the cooled cookies.

I couldn’t find a good youtube video about shortbread cookies (what a surprise). So instead, some heavy metal Cookie Monster!
