I promised the boys we would make molasses cookies about a week ago. When we didn't get a chance to make them, Elijah asked me later, "Mom, when are we going to make those Alaska cookies?"
"Alaska cookies??? Oh, they're molasses cookies. Maybe tomorrow."
The next day, "Mom, are we gonna make those malasakiss cookies?"
"Yes, but they're called molasses cookies."
"Oh. I forgot."
After the first batch came out of the oven, "Mama, can we have one of those malaskin cookies when they're cooled off?"
"Yes, but they're called...oh, never mind!"
Later, after eating one and asking for another, "Mama, thanks for making these cookies. I can't remember what they're called."
"You're welcome and you can call them whatever you want!"
