When we were young, a full cookie jar, with cookies nestled tantalizingly inside, meant having more than just cookies. It meant that someone—Mom, Grandma, a friend, whoever—was there, caring about us. We knew that whenever we needed it, a comforting bite (whether soft or crunchy) was just a reach away. And we felt nourished, in ways both physical and more essential.
