That's the Way the Cookie Crumbles!

Right off the bat I'm going to say, this is a nit picky post, but I'm going to do it anyway.  Yesterday was a cold day.  I mean, bitingly, bone crushing COLD.  The high was -4.  So I made a crock pot full of bean soup and two loaves of homemade bread for dinner.  It was a good day for that.  So, along with my domestic brainstorm for dinner, homemade cookies sounded good. 

The problem with homemade cookies, however, is that one batch makes way more than we can usually eat.  I've taken to buying those "scoop and bake" tubs at the warehouse stores.  They're freshly baked, and are really good.  Normally I buy them at the store closest to home, but last week I bought a tub at the other store because I was there that day.  A different brand, but a nationally known and good brand.

And here's the problem: these cookies crumble all over the place!  They taste good, but the texture is not the same as the ones I normally buy and bake.  Now maybe a crumbly cookie isn't a big deal; no one is going to have their lives irrevocably altered by a cookie that crumbles too much, but I was disappointed.  And, if you are like me, thought you might want to know!

Nothing more disappointing than that! How frustrating! Now you have to tell us what kind so that we don't make the same mistake!

I usually get the Nestle cookie dough at Costco, but this time I got Pillsbury at Sam's Club. Won't do that again.
