COOKIES!


I think that tea and cookies can't be endlessly discussed, how sad. Smiley: frown

Sure it can. Somebody make a chart of tea and cookie pairings and we'll debate.

Shortbread requires Earl Grey.

I really only drink earl grey and lemon tea, both pair well with just about any sort of cookie, or I just don't know enough about tea nor cookies to have much of an opinion.

Smiley: cookie
mmmm Cookies:
Shortbread and Earl Grey:2 (20.0%)
Chocolate Chip and Milk:4 (40.0%)
Oatmeal Raisin and Coffee:2 (20.0%)
Oatmeal almond white chocolate chip with chai tea:2 (20.0%)
Total:10

Please suggest additional pairings.

Oatmeal Raisin is the best cookie ever. Especially when there's enough cinnamon to sink a battleship. Also, what's the point in all the different flavours of tea? I tried Earl Grey for the first time yesterday, and it make me want so wash my mouth with soap. What's wrong with a regular old cup of tea? Eugh, I feel English now. But even still, I'm a bigger fan of Coffee

Fresh orange juice, a cup of cappuccino, croissants with cheese and jam and a good newspaper.







Wait, we were talking cookie pairings and not the ultimate breakfast...

Oatmeal cookies are delicious but should never be made with raisins, only with toffee chips or, if you must have fruit, dried cranberries. Anyway Dadanox ruined that option with his disgusting suggestion of coffee.

And, what's the point of different flavors of tea? For reals?

First of all, you must have black tea for morning, green for afternoon, and red for evening, so right there you're already splitting up.

Then, who wants to drink the exact same hot beverage every single morning for eternity? Boringass coffee drinkers, that's who.

And then, of course, there are the pairings. Earl Grey with toast or shortbread. Irish Breakfast or English Breakfast with eggs. Orange spice green tea, hot or iced, with meals that aren't breakfast. For after the meal, mint if you've eaten too much (such as Thanksgiving), otherwise something mildly spicy like ginger, cinnamon, or tumeric. Chocolate teas and chais are delicious with dessert.

oatmeal almond white chocolate chip with chai tea

It's my new favorite cookie which I'll tire of after making so many.
Don't you hate when that happens?

I wish I could make my own stroopwafels, and no single cookie can ever beat stroopwafels, ever.

/thumbs up to anything with 'waffle' in it's name.

looked it up. mmmmmmmm. Yeah, I'd bet those are tricky to make at home (and get right).

You need a special waffle iron for them, other than that I think it's not too complicated.

Wow, I got stickied in the Tradeskills forum. I feel honored. Next best thing to some cookies.


I sent Xsaurus a PM about it. :-) It seemed like a much more useful sticky than the random outdated profession leveling guides.

To be honest, the only reason I drink coffee is for Caffeine. If I have Rockstar/Monster/Relentless/insert your energy drink of choice here, then I'll drink that instead. Although, One thing that I'll drink over anything else on the planet is Irn Bru. I would bathe in that stuff if I could afford to(it's 6 dollars for 2 liters over here, or do I mean up here? either way, in Canada.) It's got enough caffeine that you don't feel like sleeping after a whole bottle, it's cheaper (back home) and it tastes as if it came from almighty science itself. And what I wouldn't do to get my hands on some Black Pudding. I really miss home now.

Really? What kind of tea is normal tea? Y'know, the one you put 3 sugars and some milk in. ***** all that fancy stuff.

I like coffee. I even have a French Press and bean grinder at home so I can make it fresh.

Fresh coffee is the best.
Instant coffee is the very very worst.

But luckily for me the coffee machine at school doesn't use powder but makes some fairly decent coffee.
Or lucky, it's a little too easy to drink way too much coffee.

Nothing wrong with a little variety in life. I drink normal black tea (I think of normal tea like an English Breakfast) and Earl grey on a daily basis, sometimes Lady Grey, Redbush, Green, Ceylon (that one's not my favorite). I'm English and I love tea, but still I voted for choc chip cookies with a glass of milk. Yum.

In the US at least, normal tea, as in the standard teabag they'd give you in a diner, is plain orange pekoe. It's black tea, which has about half the caffeine of coffee. It's also gross.

Not sure if it's that way everywhere. PG Tips is also black tea but I don't know if it's the same grade or sourced from the same places.




Edited to clarify my question about PB Tips.

I think earl grey is kind of the standard here, and I don't like green tea nor any of the fancy teas I've tried.
Especially with all sorts of fruit flavours and what not, the exception of course being lemon tea.

No idea whether PG Tips is the same all over the world, I'd hope so.

It seems every culture has their own idea of what normal tea is. In Britain, you'll get a pot of black tea - something like a PG Tips, with a jug of milk. Cross over the sea to the rest of Europe, you often have to make a point of asking for the milk as 'normal' is without milk. Last time in Northern Africa I got mint tea (yuk). Expect in Japan (I've never been), you'd get Green tea.

The best thing to eat with tea is not cookies, but scones with jam and clotted cream.

It's the same here as it is in the UK. I can get it at my local supermarket in the "British foods" section right next to the Jaffa cakes. :) I just wasn't sure if your PG Tips was the same as our, say, Lipton or Tetley. Tastes the same though.

Reason #2 why I adore British food. Mmmm... scones. (#1 is meat pies. Mmmm... meat pies. This list goes up to at least 15. British food gets too much bad press.)

Meat pies? Do you mean scotch pies? or Pork pies? and, though it's not quite a pie, the Steak Bridie. I remember back in in school I used to eat two of those for lunch, with a bottle of Irn Bru to wash it down, then a Fudge doughnut... and people wonder why Scotland's the most obese country in Europe. Strangely, after five years of that and a half pizza supper twice a week, I'm still relatively skinny.

ETA: Jaffa cakes are awesome.
Edit 2: This is closer to what I used to get.

How can you eat pizza twice a week?

Because it's deep fried and battered.

Also, there was a time when I lived in Dundee where I ordered pizza about 5 days in a row. But, I was really unhealthy last year, I can't cook, so I lived off of microwave meals, pizza, pancakes, cereal, bread, and crisps (chips for you crazy 'mericans) and Irn Bru. Lots of Irn Bru.2-4 litres a day.

I wouldn't last a week on that diet, I want my varied and semi healthy food. Occasionally I get a strong urge to eat some fast food and then I'll get something at the burger king or Mc donals but even that onyl happens once every two months or so.
