What reason do you need to make these celebratory cookies? Why, none at all – for the cookies themselves are reason to celebrate.
Not only are these colourful treats from Smitten Kitchen a cinch to prepare, but let us also remind you that the cookie is one of humanity’s most overlooked achievements. Sure, people may have saved lives with cures for diseases and breakthrough vaccines (and we thank them for that). But how many times has a cookie made someone smile? Probably billions of times. And that’d be a conservative estimate. So where’s the cookie’s Nobel Peace Prize, eh?
We’ll continue paying tribute to the crumbly snacks the only way we know how: by eating them by the fistful.
