The simplest dessert which can bring the most happiness has to be the cookie. It can be eaten with your hands and there is no limit to a cookie baker's imagination.

I am a terrible baker so if I am planning a party the dessert portion of the meal has to come from somewhere other than my kitchen. Over the years I have been known to rely on local bakeries to bail me out. You can't believe how many times I get asked to bring a dessert to a party. I have decided that it's because I know how to hunt down a good dessert and that includes a good cookie.
