Carol’s Cookie Recipe

AMC has posted Carol’s Cookie Reciepe for those of you looking to bake the delicious treats. Just remember not to tell anybody you saw it. Or you’ll find yourself ‘Outside. Tied to a tree, and you’ll be so sad. No one will hear you. But something will hear you. The monsters out there’. Hopefully, that’ll keep things clear. I know what choice I would make if I was you.
