I agreed to bake for a social event. There will be about 40 people there, though the amount is not predictable. I thought about what to prepare and decided that cookies would be a good choice. Other desserts were not finger foods, and with other food being available at this event, I did not want people to have to take a plate and fork.
I looked through my recipe box for a recipe. Favoring chocolate myself (in fact, being close to requiring it in a dessert), I looked for a cookie with chocolate. I decided on a recipe that yields many cookies and they tend to hold well, not easily breakable.
As I participated in this process, I found myself moving to the refrigerator, opening the freezer, and taking out a container of cookies I have baked that I keep for guests. Note that last word.
I took out a frozen cookie and ate one.
Doesn’t everyone do that?
