I'm eating a bad cookie* right now, and I'm really mad about it. I'm at work, hating work, stressed out, and what do I do? I reach for the too-hard, plastic-wrapped cookie that came in my boxed lunch (yay for office food, huh?), and I start to eat it.
I know it's bad. But I can't stop eating it. Damn you, stress.
So to prevent any of you out there from making my mistake, please, please for the love of god go check out these recipes and make one of them ASAP. That way, when stress attacks, you won't succumb to bad cookies. The horrors!

*Ok, so the inside was sort of moist and not that bad. But overall, I could do much better.
