A Different Holiday Tradition

All this time, I thought cookies were meant for eating.

There is a wonderful food truck near here that serves up some amazing cookies. I’ve tried a couple of them out, but nothing, and I mean, nothing compares to their peanut butter and jelly cookie sandwich. It involves two peanut butter cookies held together by peanut butter and jelly in the middle. Greatest thing ever? Yes–it’s the greatest thing ever.

But a couple of dudes have found another reason for cookies–beyond eating them. Every December these two brothers make a gingerbread cookie house that replicates a great moment in Jewish history. This year, they made a replica of Sandy Koufax’s perfect game in 1965.

The picture to the right is the finished product. But if you press on that link above you can see pictures from the entire process. It’s pretty cool, and seems fairly eatable too.
