Did you know that we're in high cookie season? No, it's not Christmas; those powdered and jeweled cookies won't come around for a few months yet. As much love as cookies get during the winter holidays, I feel that that's only one moment of glory. Full cookie season is right now, in the fall, as folks go back to school and work, lunchbox in hand. A cookie, you see, is my idea of a lunchbox mash note.
Today I have the sweetest of all lunchbox love notes for you — maybe my all-time favorite cookie recipe — a buttery, chewy oatmeal cookie topped with a dollop of chocolate fudge. It's almost as good as a kiss.
