    This idea came from watching The Best Thing I Ever Ate on the Food Network.  It has been in my memory for over a year, but never came to fruition. The opportunity to prepare a Cookie Bomb presented itself after the holidays this year.

    My mother brought both chocolate and butterscotch chip cookies for Christmas.  But so did my sister, her boyfriend’s mother and her boss!  Cookie overload!

    While they were all delicious and we ate more cookies than any one person should eat in an entire year,  hard as we tried, it was impossible to finish them all.

    The idea came from a bakery that used a combination of their day-old cookies in a trifle.  Slightly stale cookies mush up a little when layered between creamy vanilla custard and freshly whipped cream.

    No leftover cookies at your house?  No worries, you can always whip up a batch or buy some at the local bakery.  Not in the mood to make a homemade batch of vanilla custard?

    Buy a few boxes of french vanilla pudding.  No time for fresh whipped cream?  Visit the frozen food section of your grocer and pick up a tub.
