Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies have a beautiful graham cracker cinnamon topping. Lovely.

I have so many questions about life.

Like why do mattress stores always make people stand outside and hold up signs? Does that even work?

It just seems like mattresses are one of those very specific things that people go out to buy very intentionally.

Does anyone actually buy a mattress spur of the moment? I feel like mattresses are awful enough to have to buy on purpose, let alone spontaneously.

Awhile back I actually began composing a letter to my state representative, proposing that mattresses, tires, and stamps be free to all constituents. There are some things in life that just really shouldn’t cost any money, you know?

I also need some information on LinkedIn. Mainly, is it really still a thing and why do people keep inviting me?

Is there a referral kickback for getting people to join? Do you get credits to use on Amazon.com?

Every time I get a LinkedIn invitation, I immediately delete it, convinced that it’s actually a Nigerian man who wants to lure me in so he can tell me about his dead aunt’s millions.

And who on earth decided to let those dudes selling remote control cars and helicopters set up kiosks at the mall? This is so not cool; it might be the not coolest thing ever.

Oh hey, dude…thanks for driving your super fast racecar in circles around my 11-year-old-son. Oh wow…only $100? You don’t say!

All I wanted was to get a slice of cookie cake. How about you stop assaulting my head with your helicopter? This is so not okay on so many levels.

Also, did you know that people exist who don’t like cheesecake? It’s true. I have a friend who will not eat cheesecake and I chalk it up to dark magic.

Perhaps one day, I can break the spell. And I’ll start off with these strawberry cheesecake cookies.

These chewy, flavorful cookies are full of strawberries, white chocolate chunks, and cheesecake flavor. A dusting of graham cracker crumbs is the perfect touch.

We love them, and I think you will too!
