leave the cookies alone

August 21, 2009

Okay, I don’t want to get off on a rant here, but seriously, WHAT is the deal with cookie dipping?

I’ve seen my son, Ian, dip his cookies in his milk before, and I haven’t said anything because, you know, to each his own and all that crap.

But the other night I made cookies, and my cookies are largely acknowledged as the best in the world. It’s one thing to dip an Oreo. It’s another thing to dip a Rembrandt. And it’s an entirely NOTHER thing to dip one of MY cookies into MY milk.

That is, he grabbed a cookie, then grabbed MY glass of milk, and started to dip.

I came undone.

Why? WHY would you want to ruin a yummy cookie by both gooping it up and soaking it in milk? And why would you want to ruin a perfectly refreshing cold glass of milk by dipping a cookie in it? WHY?

He’s grounded for like a year.

    Are you still baking your cookies on the pampered chef stone? If so, it must be very seasoned by now!

  2. Jenny-Jenny Says:

    AMEN! My husband is a dipper… even with fresh, warm, gooey cookies right out of the oven. Nope, you just don’t do that.

  3. Eric Says:

    Hold on. There are exceptions here. What kind of cookie?

  4. Mike J Says:

    I hold the belief that it’s proper to dip any cookie at any time but it has to be in your OWN milk. Dipping in someone else’s milk would be a trip to the penalty box at our house. “That’s 1 year for improper cookie dipping”

    cookies with milk, yummy. cookies in milk, yucky. no exceptions.

    what’s next? ketchup on breakfast?!?

    • stevenbpt Says:

      Let’s hear another AMEN! Sometimes I have to leave the table at breakfast since my wife has taught my kids the ketchup on scrambled eggs yuckiness. Fortunately, we don’t have scrambled eggs much. Dug’s cookies and milk I would arm wrestle for (or just steal) but Dug’s cookies IN milk you can have. Maybe that’s what Ian is up to!! That way no one kipes his cookies, or milk for that matter.

    Nothing better than warm cookies dipped in milk. It’s like fried ice cream but in reverse. You’ve got the warm center that stays warm, even post dipping. But the dipping causes the exterior to get crispy with just a hint of sweet creaminess from the milk. It really is exquisite.

    Ian, you’re welcome to come to our house for cookies if your dad won’t give you any. You won’t be disappointed.

    Tohellandback1st, ketchup was invented for breakfast. Hash browns are naked and blase without it.

    • dug Says:

      mark, i’m going to go with the “to each his own” and dictates of your conscience and all that.

      but come on. that’s not what ketchup was invented for. ketchup was invented for french fries.

      hash browns are naked and blase without SALSA.

    • KanyonKris Says:

      Sacrilege. Good hash browns need nothing but salt, maybe a little pepper. Why bury that potato goodness? Golden brown and crispy outside and soft and warm inside – needs nothing else.

  7. KanyonKris Says:

    Worse, you know where that dipping hand has been. (BTW, how’s ‘the bargain’ holding up? I predict Ian caved.)

    Not much cookie dipping at our house. Probably because the kids satisfy their goopy cookie craving with cookie dough.

  8. bikemike Says:

    it’s why most parents eat their young in the wild…of course, they dip them first.

  9. You are entirely justified to rant…I would not dunk your cookies in milk so if you want send some my way…

  10. Rick S. Says:

    did you know chocolate milk is made from the blood milk?…..it’s true. I read it on the internets.

  11. Liz Says:

    Milk is icky. Ketchup goes with everything.

    • Bethany Says:

      Thank you! Ketchup should be it’s own food group. No matter what you put it own that thing just becomes a ketchup delivery mechanism.

  12. Karin Says:

    Coming off the success of the recent lifetime ban on PDAs (parental displays of affection), he’s probably testing the waters (or milk) to see what sort of deal he can secure with this latest indiscretion.

  13. Tim D Says:

    In Switzerland yesterday I saw a man dunking his croissant in his coffee at breakfast!

  14. Phil Says:

    Laying down the law, nice.

  15. linfin Says:

    Just curious, but if you will drink the milk with the remains of your cereal, how come you won’t drink milk with the remains of yummy cookies in it?

  16. dug Says:

    i figured someone would make this point.

    all i’m gonna say is apples and oranges.

    or maybe fujis and delicious. but still.
