I love the idea of crispy cookies on top of a steamy cup of apple cider. The steam will soften up the bottom of the cookie just enough to make it chewy, but the top will still be crispy. Mmmmmmm... hurry up, Autumn!
When times get tough, the tough get fancy. Or something like that. Seriously though, a handle on a cupcake is pretty seriously fancy. I don't think I could maintain that level of fancy for long. I'd end up with a frosting mustache or something.
