Why cookies? This is the clip that inspired me to bake. The actual baking did not start until I returned from Oxford Prep and missed my daily Ben’s. At that point I was determined to make Ben’s-worthy cookies (I have yet to succeed and don’t think that this is in fact possible). I would bake a new batch of cookies every Sunday morning. I later changed my routine to Friday evenings to take a tin of cookies to the kids I tutor in Boston (I have now forced upon them the rule that they have to all complete their homework in order to get cookies). I don’t have time to bake every Friday night, unfortunately, but I do make the occasional batch (triple chocolate is my favourite to make, with oatmeal as a close second) when I need a break and some freshly baked cookies (and dough).
Here is the clip. It’s from ‘Stranger Than Fiction,’ which is one of my favourite films.
