I’m trying to re-create one of my weaknesses here: Subway’s version of this cookie!
I love fast food. There – I said it. I’ve gone through phases (years even!) where I didn’t touch it, but now I just admit it – I really love it. It’s just delicious. I adore a good Big Mac, or a Chubby Chicken Burger. Don’t even get me started on onion rings and poutine (and if you follow me on Instragram, this is no surprise).
Here’s a secret though – I like Subway more! I’ve always LOVED Subway. I’m not sure what it is, but there is just nothing like it. I feel like asking someone what their go-to Subway order is can tell you a lot about a person. I have a few go-tos, actually, depending on what I’m looking for.
If I’m looking to splurge calorie-wise and money-wise, I get the steak & cheese with southwest sauce. If I’m watching what I’m eating, I get the sweet onion chicken teriyaki on whole wheat. If I’m looking for a cheap lunch, I get the pizza sub (which is surprisingly awesome!), again, with southwest sauce. And always, without exception, I get ALL the veggies. Seriously – when they get to the veggie part, I’m simple: “Everything, please!” Both olives and hot peppers and onions and EVERYTHING. I love it.
And I always get a grapefruit juice and two white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. Always.
What does this tell you about me?! I wanna know. My Other Half gets the Italian BMT and I just don’t get it.
So that was a long-winded way of telling you I really love Subway’s cookies and so I decided to try and make them myself. Success! These are so so good. Just like Subway (although probably slightly better for you).
