Today is Cookie Monster’s birthday! Most of us are familiar with that wonderful muppet, Cookie Monster, whose main focus in life is eating cookies. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to show you 12 yummy cookie recipes that will be a blast to make with the kids this summer!
The Cookie Monster, created by Jim Henson, was actually first drawn as a cookie eating monster for a General Foods Commercial that never aired. He then appeared in an IBM training video, and then on the Ed Sullivan show.
He debuted in the first episode of Sesame Street with Kermit the Frog, where he interrupted Kermit’s “W lecture” by eating the letter. And history was made!
