Cooking Corner: Students Stunned by Spunkmeyer

The typical beaver student, always equipped with exemplary taste buds, is often found wondering: “Where do the Beaver cookies come from?” Ice Cream Wednesday is the only day that shares the 3rd course fame with the smell of Otis Spunkmeyer cookies wafting down the hallway. Temporary food service director, Faizul has told the Cooking Corner Crew the truth about Beaver cookies. He says that the cookie dough is ordered from Sysco and made by a company called Otis Spunkmeyer. The cookies are precut and come in various sizes and weights. The weight of each cookie varies from a half an ounce to four ounces. A four-ounce cookie produces a final baked circumference the size of a typical Starbucks cookie. Beaver uses the one to one and a half ounce cookies because they are much more manageable and easier on the tummy. The cookies are baked for about fifteen minutes until the centers reach a nice semi-soft consistency, giving the outsides a nice, “crunch”. Now that the secret is out, Beaver cookies can be eaten at your convenience in your own home. Drop on by your local grocery store, pick up a tub of Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough, and pig out.
