National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day

“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.” - Barbara Jordan

It's National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day!

Sponsored by: 13th Cookie

Curious as to what the difference between an oatmeal cookie and a lacy oatmeal cookie is? Oatmeal cookies are usually chewy and thick; and, they're considered "drop cookies" because when they're dropped on the cookie sheet they don't spread out too much during baking. A lacy oatmeal cookie is much thinner, crispier, and a more delicate cookie though. The batter is very loose and spreads out during baking. Visually, they tend to look like lace because of the holes that appear in the cookie.

And now you're all the wiser, foodies!

My friend Nicholas believes that EVERYBODY should be able to enjoy cookies.

He and his incredibly unique company, 13th Cookie, are doing just that. Creating the "most delicious, delectable, palatable, ambrosial sweet joyness imaginable and making it available to everyone, despite desired or necessary dietary alterations."

Which means you and I can both enjoy a sweet treat regardless of the fact that I like to eat vegan and maybe you don't. Maybe you have a gluten allergy. Or maybe you eat everything but prefer something a little more organically crafted. Whatever the case may be, 13th Cookie is catering to everyone without being exclusive to anyone.

And, you know, its kind of nice when something as simple and wholesome as a cookie can unify people. It's as if they're making a statement like, "whatever you can eat, I can eat too. Were really not all that different, you and I."

Maybe 13th Cookie isn't manufacturing sweets at all.

Maybe they're secretly making world peace.

One cookie at a time.

Happy National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day!
