The Nemo Cookie


I paint so many cookies, today I decided to design one! When I have time I may actually make a cookie mold and make a bunch.

The Nemo, named for my favorite anti-hero, would be a toasted vanilla bean cookie with a raspberry creme filling. It would contain no nuts or dairy of any kind. Half the thickness of an Oreo, with a crisp baked cookie (tapered like the new iPod!) It would also be wider than an Oreo.

It would feature a submerged Nautilus submarine on the top cookie amid waves for texture and grip and on the bottom, an art deco squid!

Of course I don't own a cookie company, but who knows? Isn't there room in this world for a cookie that anyone can eat and that encourages reading?

Hi Chris,
I just discovered your blogs this past Saturday, thanks for all the years you have made laugh with Haggar and his crew.
Funny... On the Nemo cookie, Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea was the first book I ever read as a child in Cuba, a present from my father and I have been hooked on reading ever since.
Best regards,
