Those little pink-and-white-frosted animal crackers with the sprinkles are pretty addictive. Unlike a lot of other people, I didn't have them growing up. (We were Oreo people.) But once college hit, I was exposed to the glory that exists in those little cookies. They're like crack.
Unfortunately, crack is going out of business.
The Mother's Cookies company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. It all happened incredibly fast. Employees were left in the lurch. Not a sweet deal. And now those magic little cookies are gone forever.
Fortunately, Dessert First has developed a homemade stand-in. Hurray for the internet!
