This month’s Cookies and Kindness selection from Dorie Greenspan is the very last one of the series, though Dorie hopes that everyone who bakes her recipes will continue making sharing and goodwill part of the mix.
This is a cookie that will be welcomed by just about anyone – even those of us who are usually fussy about raisins (like me) and those who really only care for milk chocolate, like my niece and reportedly, the entire Republic of Ireland.
Which is fitting, in a week when kindness is the very least of what should be expected of us. My suggestion is to take some cookies to one of the anti-racist marches and rallies that are being held all over this weekend, or eat some with your kids while you answer their questions about nuclear proliferation, or bring them to your grandparents (or great-grandparents) who remember the fight against 20th Century fascism.
There is power in sharing food, just as there is power in standing up together, talking about what’s important, and learning how to make a world that truly does move toward justice and love.
August’s Dorie’s Cookies goodness can be found here and here at Tuesdays with Dorie.

The cookies look great. I love your post. Someone I really respect once said to me “There is only one rule in life…. Always be kind.” We could use more civility and kindness these days.
Beautifully said, Teresa. And beautifully baked, too! xoxo
These look great Teresa. I have to say I loved the Crash-O-Cookies.
There is a lot of power in those sentiments, Teresa. And the cookies look amazingly delicious too.
Good suggestion. I try and bake and share all the time but maybe to some of my adversaries.
