Makes Me Smile: Busch Cookies

Share something that makes you smile.

I love cookies. Crunchy cookies, cakey cookies, chewy cookies — all kinds of cookies make me happy. Some cookies, however, are not only delicious but are also close to my heart for sentimental reasons. Busch cookies are a prime example. 

Busch cookies are a very specific kind of chocolate chip cookie, and they are fantastic. I discovered my first Busch cookie through theatre when I was in high school — over the years, the Busch family has had a number of children in theatre department of my old high school, and Mrs. Busch would supply us with Busch cookies. I’m not entirely sure what it is about them that sets them apart from other cookies, but they really were delicious. There was also just something about them — Mrs. Busch would bring big platters of them, and everyone would gather around and wait eagerly for a cookie (or three). They were Busch cookies, and that was that. Everyone knew about them.

I was feeling sad one day, during one of the first few months I was at college — a bit lonely, perhaps, just generally out of sorts. I stopped by the campus center to check my mail, and I found a package addressed to me from Mrs. Busch, full of Busch cookies. It is, to this day, one of the best things I’ve ever received in the mail — partly because it was so unexpected, partly because it came at the perfect time (and partly because Busch cookies really are that good). I was in a fabulous mood for the rest of the day.
