The Great Cookie Cake Debacle

Last night, I had my girls group over and we discussed our book & celebrated Sarah's 25Th birthday with cookie cake. I found the recipe online- well the cookie cake wasn't a recipe- you just got a roll of slice & bake cookies and pound it out on a pizza sheet. But for the icing you mix cool whip, cream cheese, and powdered sugar. It was good on the cookie cake but even better for dipping fruit into! In case you need a fast recipe for a delicioso dessert.

The unfortunate thing about hosting an event at your home with tasty treats is that you end up picking off the leftovers after everyone leaves until you're quite certain that the button on your pants will pop off and take someone's eye out. This morning Adam says, "I can't believe I had cookie for supper."

I say, "Please, it's the top rung of the food pyramid- which is the most important." Duh, that's why it's on top, people. That's what the Egyptians intended when they built the pyramid, after all. Plus the fruit that we dipped cancelled out the bad stuff.

The best desserts are those you can justify by thier ingredients (i.e. carrot cake ...healthy right? has carrots in it and nuts for protien!)And dipping fruit in any sort of chocolate is automatically ok, because it's fruit!! C'mon people!

Mmm...yum! My mouth is watering just thinking about the delicious goodness of cookie cake. Unfortunately, I just ate a Lean Cuisine for lunch - boo. Maybe that means that I can have a cookie cake for dessert!

LOL, I had to laugh at your post on the other site.....Everyone is freaking out about some song that was sung on American Idol and you say "Snoop, bringing the folks together"..........LOL, meanwhile everyone else on there is having a stroke over a song???? I didn't see it but people are apparently quite hot and bothered..........Leave it to the dog-father.
