Cookies to die for

We Energies is giving out cookie cookbooks again. Here’s a recipe Wisconsin’s worst polluter omitted:

Coal Cookies

  • 2 cups “coal dust”
  • (sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon “mercury”
  • (vanilla extract)
  • 3/4 cup “arsenic”
  • (cocoa powder)
  • 2 cups all-purpose “fly ash”
  • (flour)
  • 2 1/2 sticks “coal slurry,” at room temperature
  • (unsalted butter)
  • 2 large “coal chunks”
  • (eggs)
  • 1 teaspoon “lead”
  • (baking soda)
  • 1/2 teaspoon “bottom ash”
  • (salt)

More coal dust, for garnish.

This may help us keep in mind what We Energies is really feeding us. Every day.

Carl Lindner, Racine
