The cookie thief

A few days ago, my dear daughter made a batch of oatmeal cookies, and at my request, put pepitas in them; roasted, salted, dehulled pumpkin seeds. I like the little extra crunch and subtle saltiness they add. (And I love having my DD home, but it does make it harder to kick the sugar monster!)

I had set up a few cookies in my high tech studio (aka, a bench from the kitchen table, pulled up close to the sliding glass door so as to catch some indirect sunlight). I stepped away to get something from the office, but when I came back something wasn’t quite right.

Hmm… One cookie seems to be missing. Now, who could the culprit be?

Oh, I just can’t get mad at that adorable face!
