We like our sweets here at Capstone. Don't believe me? Just come around sometime right before an office-wide email is about to go out, letting us all know that there are cookies and milk in the break room. You would see people dashing around corners, elbows out and hair flying. Okay, okay, I exaggerate. But now is the season for cookies, and the point I'm trying to make is this: At Capstone, we don't mess around with cookies.
This is, after all, the inaugural year of the Capstone Cookie Club in the Twin Cities office. Each Monday, one member is relied upon to provide cookies for the entire Cookie Club (and, I hear, some interlopers . . . but I'm not naming names). These cookies are intended to last throughout the week, but they are usually gone by Wednesday — and sometimes even earlier! Capstone's Cookie Club members are an inventive bunch. We've had everything from pumpkin-white-chocolate to salted-double-chocolate-olive-oil cookies. And we always appreciate the standard chocolate chip.
Wondering whether our weakness for desserts was properly represented in the books we publish, I took an inventory and was quite impressed. If your sweet tooth is tingling now, take a look at some of these sweets-filled gems I came across in our library. I just might consult them on my next turn to bake for the Cookie Club.
A happy cookie season to you!
