A guilty pleasure, we call them cookies, the Brits call them biscuits, but those little bits of flavor make your day at times.

 

My favorites:

 

My grandmother's gingersnaps (not hard, but slightly soft)

 

The peanut butter chocolate chip cookes made by the director of our Children's Advocacy Center- you can't eat just one no matter how hard you try.  

 

Ok, tanknetters name your favorite....

As I've become more purposeful about diet and health and controlling sugar intake, my cookie tastes have diminished. An occasional oatmeal/raisin cookie for a snack, or a small sleeve of cheap vanilla cream cookies for an energy boost while driving. I have otherwise completely lost my taste for rich, sweet pastry.

My grandmother's, RIP, oatmeal raisin were always my favorite.  My mother's (RIP) molasses, always chewy, were a very close second.

Oh man, think I could corrupt you with a NY style cheesecake with zesty lemon and orange threads throughout, topped with a fresh strawberry and whipped cream topping?

I had this boss who at Christmas would give us plates of homemade Christmas cookies. One of the cookies she would make was a chocolate cookie with a Rolo baked into the middle. It was fantastic.

Oh, I do have a weakness for cheesecake. ;)

I'm in a similar boat.  My diet and fitness routines really fell into line the last six months and I'm in the best shape of my life (even better than my Army days despite the age difference).  I haven't cut sugar out of my diet but I've discovered a lot of the sweets I used to enjoy just don't taste good anymore. 

 

The only sweets I find I still enjoy are from a local artisan bakery about 20m away.  So every 1-2 weeks now I stop by at the end of my work week and pick up a chocolate chip cookie and black and white cupcake.  Good stuff and well worth the price.

Most of my favorite sweets are from my childhood. My mothers Texas sheet cake with walnuts, and her carrot cake. Then one of my sisters would make banana bread with walnuts on a regular basis. A piece of that slathered in salty butter and a glass of cold milk was a treat. And my great grandmother would make Cornflake treats that included peanut butter, butter scotch morsels, and corn syrup in the recipe,. They were a handful of diabetes, but they blew any old boring  rice crispy treats out of the water.

A lady friend makes pecan pie with about half the normal amount of sugar. Others don't like it, but to me it's really good!

I feel the same way, my favorite sweets are those from my childhood: My great grandmother's pound cake, my grandmother's gingersnaps, and fudge pie.
