A while back I saw a cute idea on Pinterest for milk and cookies - but the cookies were store bought, which doesn't really matter except I wanted home-made cookies. Oh, the cookies had to have a hole in the center - so I thought I'd show you how I did it - in case, you know, you ever want a cookie with a hole in the center!
You will need a big straw. I have some large "smoothie" straws I purchased at a kitchen store and they worked great. They are made of plastic so they didn't bend, do not use paper straws, they won't work with hot cookies! You will also need some fresh-hot-from-the-oven home-made cookies; I made chocolate chip cookies. As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, insert the straw into the center and lift - that's it! Instant hole! The cookies will still be soft so you need to work quickly, making the holes before they crisp up. You don't need to worry about extracting the cookie part from the straw - just keep making holes and the centers go up into the straw, which you can squeeze/rinse out later.
There is a reason for all this hole-making...and why I used a large straw for the hole instead of a regular-sized one...the cookies need to fit over a straw...
On top of cute little milk bottles with spoon-straws in the bottles (so chocolate or strawberry syrup could be added and stirred in later) these made fun treats for my girls. Straw cookies and milk...for what ails you at 3:00 in the afternoon.
(Several of the girls didn't come for our cookie and milk event...but I promise that no cookies were left uneaten or milk undranken. Yes, undranken, as one 12 year old said, and who am I to question?)
