I hate this. In an attempt to give them that "freshly baked chewiness" cookies nowadays are so loaded with shortening that the whole experience is corrupted. I bet some kids don't even know what it's like to have a real freshly-baked and soft cookie, vs. one that's been artificially softened. Hell, I bet they don't even know what a real cookie tastes like, some of them.
Damn, this is a travesty. A TRAVESTY I SAY!
We must remedy this.
First step: get Subway to stop making its cookies with 99% shortening.
