Making cookies with little kids always seems like a good idea until clean-up time. That's where the skillet cookie comes in. You don't get any bowls dirty because you mix all the ingredients directly into a cast-iron pan.  I originally saw this on Sophistimom.com, who recommends using high-quality ingredients because: "That would lessen the flavor, lessen the experience, and still make you fat. " Ha! And point taken. We had a bar of lemon-pepper dark chocolate and the last of a bottle of Madagascar vanilla -- and no regrets with the result.

Sue Sober of Baltimore was in search of the recipe for the potato chip cookies that were sold at Hutzler's department store. The last of the legendary department stores that provided goods and services to Baltimoreans for 132 years, closed over three decades ago. Many people still have fond memories of not only of the merchandise side of the store but its restaurants, tea rooms and bakeries. As luck would have it, Joyce Smith of Arbutus, who worked at Hutzler's in Westview until it closed in the late 1980s, sent in a recipe for the potato chip cookies.

First came the food trucks. Now, there's a cookie scooter. Back in June, Columbia resident Casey Dyson launched CookieRide, which sells home-baked cookies from an environmentally-friendly scooter. Dyson has been bringing CookieRide to Columbia gathering spots like Lake Kittamaqundi, office parks and outdoor pools. CookieRide also deliver cookies -- as well as pastry platters, brownies and gift baskets -- to homes and businesses year-round, but curbside sales will wrap up in November and resume next March.

Thousands of miles on the road this summer and fall have afforded me the opportunity to observe a variety of political ads from across the spectrum. Herewith, observations from the heartland: I assume the relentless Democratic campaign to demonize the conservative Koch Brothers and their "Americans for Prosperity" organization has been poll tested, but I still don't get it. Driving negatives against someone (or something) that few people recognize violates a core tenet of political advertising.

Chris Kaltenbach has a story about Berger cookies. Hurriance Irene didn't cause any damage to the production facilities or the iconic little chocolate-topped cookies themselves at the Berger plant in Waterview, but all of the company's delivery boxes were totaled. Now, the cookies are rolling out again.

Picture 7,000 gingerbread cookies. Yes, 7,000 of those sweet creations all packed into one place, looking absolutely sugary and scrumptious. Sounds like something out of a story book or Hallmark holiday special for kids, doesn't it? But it'll be reality starting Nov. 24 when Pennsylvania's Longwood Gardens unveils its Gingerbread Fantasy, a holiday-themed exhibition that runs through Jan. 8. Longwood, about 70 miles away in the town of Kennett Square, has had holiday displays before, but none like this.

More than 22 years ago, Leona Smith came to her church family at Mt. Nebo United Methodist Church in Delta, Pa., to ask the congregation to join with her in providing cookies for the York County Prison at Christmastime. Those choosing to participate in the Cookie Project would bake cookies and bring them into church by a certain day. About seven years ago, Sandy Thacker designated a day in December for anyone who wanted to join her at church to bake cookies for the Jail Ministry. Over the years, Thacker has developed the process into having anyone make the cookie recipe at home and then bring the mixture into church with the instructions for her crew to bake the cookies.

Last year, Baltimore beer drinkers were introduced to Full Tilt Brewing's Berger Cookie Chocolate Stout. Less than 11 months later, Frederick's Flying Dog Brewery has announced its own collaboration with another Baltimore cookie institution, Otterbein's Bakery. Four types of beer resulted from the partnership: Imperial Hefeweizen (inspired by Otterbein's sugar cookies), Oatmeal Raisin Stout (inspired by Otterbein's oatmeal raisin cookies), Oak-Aged Hazelnut Scotch Ale (inspired by Otterbein's ginger cookies)

Sylvia "Cookie" Harris, the wife of Rep. Andy Harris and a prominent anti-abortion advocate in Annapolis, died suddenly on Thursday, a spokeswoman for the congressman said. Mrs. Harris, who would have turned 58 this weekend, was a frequent presence in Annapolis, where state lawmakers said she was a forceful advocate for causes she believed in, particularly anti-abortion policies. "She was an amazing and wonderful woman, a fabulous mother and very supportive of Andy in all that he did," said Diana Waterman, chairwoman of the Maryland Republican Party.

There's nothing different about your Berger cookie. It's just the nutritional label that's changed. A sharp-eyed shopper wrote in to tell us that he had tried the Berger cookie that has 0 grams of trans fat, and that it tasted just as good as the 1-gram fudge-topped classic that's been produced and enjoyed in Baltimore for generations. We went out and bought a pack of trans-fat-free Berger and we also couldn't see or taste anything different about the new Berger cookie.  That's because there is no difference.

A late-night cookie store will open in Charles Village in late July. The store will be open every day until 3 a.m. Insomnia Cookies, a Bryn  Mawr , Penn.-based bakery and dessert cafe that delivers warm cookies to the customer's door until the wee hours of the morning, will open its first Maryland location in the Charles Commons building at 3301 N.

Firefighters from the Rivers Park Fire Station had only one question for Casey Dyson as they sampled home-baked cookies from her fledgling delivery service: Does she pack cold milk on her scooter? Dyson, a Columbia resident who launched CookieRide in August after four months of paperwork and preparation, carries six varieties of cookies - but no beverages. The firefighters at the Old Columbia Road station gave their approval to her quarter-pound chocolate chip cookies and smaller Power Bites - an original recipe made of nuts, flax seed, and dried blueberries and cherries that was inspired by a physical therapist seeking a snack high in antioxidants.

It's also considering expanding locally beyond the seven stores it operates mostly in Baltimore-area malls. Online customers can choose from more than 30 predesigned cookie cakes or customize a cake with a personalized message.

I would like to support the fight to save the Berger cookie ( "Don't take away my Berger cookies Nov. 29)! Why is the government trying to invade every aspect of our lives? Yes, people should eat a more healthy diet, but when were cookies ever healthy in the first place? Berger cookies are not responsible for the obesity problems or the cardiovascular problems in the country. People eating too much and not moving are the issues here. The government needs to allow good, hard-working people like the family that makes Berger cookies to earn an honest living!
