After I made cookies last night I was curious about why cookies are named cookies and where they originated from. I have been out of school for 5 months now and I decided to stimulate my brain and share it with you. I love learning random facts and being able to share the few bits of knowledge that is stored in my brain. This information comes from http://whatscookingamerica.net/History/CookieHistory.htm.

I work with a girl who first told me about these chocolate crinkle cookies. I am so glad I was able to finally make them.
This year was a little hard for me because Dennis and I had our first Christmas away from home. It was nice to start our life together with our own Christmas, but at the same time it was a little bit lonely. I don't know if you have ever been to a college town during a holiday, but there is almost no one here to the point there were only 12 couples in our ward yesterday. I did not feel the desire to make Christmas goodies when there was not any one here to give them to. Thank goodness for the LDS Church because it was there that Dennis and I found there were actually several couples in town who felt the same way we did, so with my nature to throw parties we had two couples over for games last night. It was a blast and I was able to have an excuse to make these yummy cookies! I am so glad this Christmas turned out so great and we were able to make some new friends.
