To me, a lot of food (both sweet and savory) tastes best at room temperature.

But I like certain cookies right out of the fridge (some friends even tell me they're better out of the freezer, too).


Thin Mints

What others?

Out of the fridge? Mallomars and Thin Mints? I've never tried them IN the fridge, but I see fun new experiments in my future!

I do like partially frozen marshmallows. Don't ask me how that was discovered.

I eat almost all cookies frozen--if they're left at room temp I will see them and eat them Keeping them in the freezer will extend the life of the batch...er, somewhat.

Milky Way bars frozen solid. You must have strong teeth and jaws, but so yummy.

Frozen brownies are the best.

I like Teddy Bear biscuits out of the fridge.
It's almost never bad to feed someone.

Brownies most definitely. In fact, I don't like room temp brownies at all.

Uno Bars, for the candy bar category. If you can find them.

Chocolate chip cookies. But I have to disagree, ruthcooks. They're not any safer in the freezer than in the cookie jar, as I think you know! :wink:

I used to like Hydrox sandwich cookies frozen, some candies, like Milky Way or Kit Kat, and homemade chocolate chip cookies.

My wife makes bourbon balls for Christmas http://southernfood..../r/bl81212f.htm


They're an uncooked cookie that has a dose of boubon in them.  We keep them in the freezer and the booze keeps them from freezing solid.  Fantastic right out of the freezer.

Ruby Mae's sugar cookies!


My daddy's cousin gave me her recipe for her thin crisp sugar cookies. They are great at room temp but crispy ice cold with a glass of lemonade...on a hot summer's day...bliss.


There is another thing I like frozen but I'd like to try and sell it in some fashion one day. I won't say what it is.

I love to eat cookies and I am fan of them . I have to suggest you that Cucidati is a traditional Italian cookie its proper Italian cookie having mixture of figs and other fruits, nuts, and seasonings. Some people having different recipes for Cucidati but typically includes figs, dates, raisins, and walnuts and is bound together with honey and orange marmalade also having cover of color full candies


Just try eat once and you will get best cookie for tasting

Kit Kat Dark!

Gene Weingarten, writing in The Washington Post about online news stories and their readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

"A vasectomy might cost as much as a year’s worth of ice cream, but that doesn’t mean it’s equally enjoyable." -Ezra Dyer, NY Times
