    I can haul through a pack easily, which is why I don't. For some reason, when my late wife passed, I got into them. I stopped though.

    Perhaps they were comforting, or reminded you of happier times.
    They're dangerous! I can't even explain the pull they have...but it's dangerous.

    When I was sick, I lost a lot of weight, too much, actually, so I had to put some weight back on--and those were words I hadn't heard from a doctor in decades! I quickly found out that there are certain things I have trouble limiting. Knowing from before that I lose all control over Oreos, my already-standing ban on them remains! :)

    Ah Those good old days of eating Double Stuffed Oreos too, too bad we do not have anything of that nature either.
    I almost stopped eating cookies for the lognest time.

    Perhaps I'm weird but I never was a big Oreo fan. Hydrox was more my medicine of choice.
    I make a killer chocolate chip cookie that I can't say no to. I made them often when my children were young. Now that they have left the nest, once or twice a winter I bake some.
    I would make them more often but can't quit eating them. The answer is to not make them.

    Oh, dear. I hear you on the Pecan Sandies. (Nutter Butters I can take or leave.) I wonder if Sandies are vegan like Oreos. :thinking: I haven't bought them since I was still vegetarian, so I don't know.

    It's probably just as well, since I can easily down ⅔ of a package of those, too.

    I open a chip bag, once I like to eat the entire thing in two sittings, I am a foodie and a candy junkie, trying to cut all the way back.

    You know what? Hydrox always sounded medicinal to me.

    Also, I don't know if there was a regional element at play, or what, but I don't remember Hydrox from childhood, just Oreos. The first I really recall of them was when I lived in the south.
    You're a good parent, making yummy cookies for the kids. :)

    Do you have your own recipe?
    I understand... but wait! How about baking a double batch, keeping some for yourself, and taking the rest to the nearest homeless shelter, abused women and children's shelter, soup kitchen, etc.? Win-win all around! :D

    Don't get me started on chips! I mean that literally--much like Double Stuf Oreos, once I dive in to a new bag of chips, watch out! :eek: (That's why I'm not buying chips right now either.)
    Ditto...

    The chocolate has a hint of salt to it... making it more intense in my opinion. I ate both as a child but preferred Hydrox. They are near impossible to find around these parts nowadays.

    My CC cookies don't vary much from other recipes. I use Bakers Best chips and Crisco shortening vs butter. I use two eggs vs one and the key ingredient is real vanilla from Mexico. I remove them from the oven when they are still very soft. I eat them until I'm near ill. :)

    When someone saids facebook, they really mean "I scroll throughout all my time on there, honestly and make a post every once a while." Then why do you have an account on it?
