The best part of the cookie is what is in the middle!!! It gets all soft and gooey when baked. It has to undergo the heat of the oven to melt the inside.
Oh how often I feel like that cookie!!! I am baking in the heat, God melting me on the inside. Changing and growing all the time.
I would much rather be the cookie baking in the oven, then the dough just sitting in the bowl in the refrigerator!!
