Being it is my friends birthday today, I opted to get him a special cake. Normally this would mean I drive down to the nearest Nestle and place an order for the largest cookie cake they have (he's a bit of a cookie fiend), but today I just felt like baking. And what's better than a healthier, better tasting version of the real thing? The fact that no one can tell it's a "healthy" cookie, you know what I'm talking about. Cardboard cookies. These are definitely not cardboard cookies.
