Cookie Monster

Meet Jacob's newest purchase / hobby.
He wanted a "Cookie Convection Oven" to take to work for his team. So he found a steal on Craigslist and had it shipped to him.
He's made several batches of cookies with different recipes and froze the remaining dough.One morning, I woke up to this. Not too bad right? Within a few days Jacob had turned my freezer into his cookie dough locker ... over 250 cookies and 7 different kinds of dough. Slight obsession?
(These are my favorite kind. Peanut butter with melted mini Reeses Pieces, mini Rolos, and mini Hersey drops. )Last Thursday, he asked me to bring the cookie oven to work. I have to admit I wasn't ready to part with it. I made the excuse that I wanted to try the banana / walnut / chocolate chip cookie recipe that I had since I had some ripe bananas. Truth is, it's just been so nice and simple to make cookies when my kids have their friends' over and when they want a snack in their lunch. Three dozen cookies in 12 minutes with no clean up.  I'm thinking maybe I'll have to find a way into talking him in keeping it here.

super super awesome. I didn't even know these existed. Jake is definitely going to be everyone's bestie now.

I love peanut butter cookies with Hershey kisses in the middle - I could become addicted to a machine that produced them quickly!!
