Okay, folks, it’s time for you to declare — Not whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, an Obama fan or a McCain supporter. It is time for you to declare your cookie allegiance.

October is National Cookie Month. But if ever there was a food that could support an entire year of tributes, it is the versatile and delightful cookie. Three hundred and sixty-five different cookies could easily be named for every day of this proposed National Cookie Year. And then some.
In fact, if I started naming cookie types now, it would probably take me about as long as it took Forrest Gump’s pal, Bubba, to name all the shrimp concoctions he knew.
