Converting Cookies

I've got a box of stale chocolate chip cookies in my kitchen, and I need to get rid of them. I'm hoping to repurpose them rather than simply trash them. Is there a dish or baked food that can make use of stale cookies?

Tragik? I need you.

smash em and use them as the base/crust for a pie

Ooooh! Apple pie. We've got some rather old apples too!

This is what I was going to suggest. Not sure I would recommend going with the old apples, though. Might be best just to turn those to hooch. lol

Conversely, if you'd like to "unstale" your cookies, you can boil water in a cup and then place it under a bowl with the cookies for a few minutes. It will steam the cookies and rehydrate them.

Stale popcorn mixed with cookies doesn't sound good to me.

How 'bout some stale caramel to go with them?

How big are the cookies? If they're not real big you could line a bowl with them and fill it with "real" pudding. (The kind you cook) I make a vanilla/banana dessert using 'Nilla wafers for a "crust". I don't see why it wouldn't work using a different flavor. but the pudding needs to be hot when you pour it in, the mix, refrigerate, serve stuff doesn't work very well.

Food recipes always call for the freshest of ingredients. I wouldn't use them for making/cooking something else.

Just like when you deglaze a pan, use a wine that you are willing to drink.

Reduce, recycle, reuse.

I tried that with diapers when the kids were little - didn't work so well.

Never tried with cookies but you might bake them again. Maybe make brownies and put them under or in them, etc. Old potato chips and old bread make for great cooking items when you bake them.
