On the inside, I am secretly a chubby little kid. I love treats, the sweeter the better! This is probably why I never purchase snack food to keep at home. At first I would want to devour it all, and later I would totally forget I bought it. Not a good use of calories or money. The one thing that I do love, and always keep in my freezer, is Cheryl’s Buttercream Cookies. My mother-in-law, such a dear, sweet woman, introduced these to me shortly after Robbie and I moved in together while still in Maryland. I’ve been in love ever since.
Although not a great contributor towards health benefits, Cheryl’s cookies are always delightful and delicious. The texture is perfect and the frosting is sublime. The best part is a trick that the hubs showed me. Freeze the cookies shortly after getting them (if you have more than you
could should consume in one or two days), and when you want to pull one out as a snack, place them on a plate or paper towel, stick them in the microwave, and heat for about 15 seconds. It warms them up just enough but maintains the consistency. It’s the perfect treat (and I mean treat, not everyday snack)!
Every Friday Cheryl’s has a weekly cookie giveaway. Check out their Facebook page tab labeled Free Cookie Friday for more information, but even if you don’t win one, I recommend sending yourself a little $5 box of cookie love. You get a cookie and a coupon, and no one needs to know that you are your very own secret admirer. Eat up! Num num num…
