“Kitchen-sink cookies,” Trishiffany proclaimed. “Sounds disgusting, right? But I’ve always been so torn about chocolate chips versus butterscotch chips, but here you don’t even have to choose. Walnuts and peanuts! Oatmeal and cornflakes! Raisins and dried cherries. Not to mention the shredded coconut. Sometimes we just need our little freedoms, you know?”
– Helen Phillips
“In the cookie of life, friends are the chocolate chips.”
“If I had any choice in the matter, I’d stay in my comfy bed and eat warm chocolate chip cookies all day.”
“They’re like chocolate-chip cookies, though. Can’t have just one.”
– Steve Berry

“When life gives you lemons, make chocolate chip cookies and make the whole world wonder what you’ve been up to.”
Lou pushes a plate of cookies
in front of us.
Chocolate pieces tease
like jewels in sand.
Please, she says, have some.
I don’t want to be impolite,
so I take five.
– Katherine Applegate
