One should never underestimate the power of a sugar cookie.
Mere proximity to these cookies compounded with the frustration of being unable to open the puppy-proof container they were in drove my dog to devour an entire container of hermit crab food as an unfortunate replacement (the cap of which she was somehow able to pry open). I kid you not.
So while they may not be “fancy”, they are pretty much chewy, outrageously vanilla-infused cookie perfection. Certainly the kind of cookies that intense cravings are made of.
