Cookies and Milk #milkdrinkersmilk
Cookies and milk, probably one of the most iconic pairings of food and drink. A classic snack time - the soft sweetness of the milk coupled with the crunchy goodness of the cookie. The two work perfectly together.
I have fond childhood memories of dipping my cookies in milk, normally after school in the winter months or late-night. A soothing combination, making it the perfect wind-down time snack.
Some people have a preferred cookie, I don't mind as for me it is all about the milk, the milk has to be light and fresh, which is what you get with Cravendale.
Cravendale milk is filtered much more than regular milk and it not pastaurised, therefore, it has less bacteria, and it stays fresh for seven days after opening it.
Nowadays I prefer to eat my cookies dry and drink my milk without bits of cookies in it, whereas when I was a child I used to dunk - My children love to dunk their cookies into the milk, eat them soggy and drink the milk afterwards with bits of crumbs in - They say cookies taste so much better when dunked into milk.
My kids love the combination of cookies and milk and have it most days.
And, when it gets colder, we will heat the milk to a nice warm temperature and drink it warm, which always takes me back to the cold winters we had as a child. A ritual by many is to drink a warm glass of milk as is said to help you wind down to sleep - it's not just an old wives tale. Milk is rich in the amino acid tryptophan, which helps in the production of the sleep inducing brain chemicals, serotonin and melatonin.
How do you prefer to drink yours? are you a dunker?
