You can find these cookies in 2 places. The first is on a Delta flight but if u r not traveling right now like Gregg and me you can also find them in Walgreens! Much easier! And trust me, buy extras because these cookies are yummy! I had never heard of them before…have u???

3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar

Mix cookies and sugar together.
Add butter and stir until combined.
