To celebrate 30 years of baking SUPER cookies, we asked our loyal cookie lovers to show us what it would look like if one cookie rose above the rest and became a SUPER HERO cookie. The creator of the best cookie super hero would win one dozen cookies each month for one year.
Now a hero has emerged… from the mind of Alice Grunstra came Samantha Greene a.k.a. Mint Condition.
Here’s her story:
What are Mint Condition’s powers?
Icy cold breath and a superhuman ability to keep her cool under pressure.
How did she gain her powers?
After eating a particularly dense and chocolate-y brownie, Samantha Greene brushed her teeth before going to bed. Unbeknownst to her, her tube of toothpaste contained extract from a magical mint plant. The flavors of mint and chocolate combined to make her the super-cool super hero she is today.
Does she have a weakness?
A severe allergy to nuts.
Does she have an archenemy?
The crafty Cahootz, whose unpredictable (yet delicious) crunch never fails to keep her on her toes.
Congratulations Alice! Thanks for bringing us a wonderful cookie super hero!
We had many great submissions and also chose four honorable mentions.
