Tonight Johnnie-Girl is going to see a movie with a bunch of fellow fun-loving young adults. At their last 'get-together' it was reminisced how they had previously snuck an entire pie into the movie theater, divided it up onto plates and handed it out to their group.
Illegal ? - YES
but also daring and wildly diabolical
In an attempt to continue tradition, Johnnie-Girl baked up a big batch of contraband movie treats.
And being a smart young thing, it soon dawned on her that cookies do not last very long in this household. What's a girl to do?
A simply constructed warning sign was soon atop the cookies
It worked like a charm ... but did have us all wondering ...
For those who dare here is the recipe that she used. It has been modified slightly from the 'Company's Coming' cookbook entitled Cookies.
