Halloween Monster Cookies


Last year, our house was on the market and whenever we’d get a showing, I’d try to leave some warm cookies. It made the house smell good, sure, but I remember looking for houses and it was EXHAUSTING. I might’ve bought any house that offered me warm cookies, even if the house had been totally wrong for us.

So, yes. I was totally trying to bribe prospective buyers with cookies.

Anyhoo, one day we had a showing and I left two dozen of these on a tray with a big pitcher of lemon water. We were leaving just as the family pulled in — the parents and their two kids gave us a friendly wave.

(Remember that, two parents…two kids.)

You guys, when we got back an hour later EVERY SINGLE COOKIE WAS GONE! That’s 24 cookies. Grated, they were small cookies, but STILL!!! Did they eat them all? Stuff them in their bag for later? Give them to passers-by on the street? Oh my goodness!

We never did find out what happened, but they must’ve been good, right?
