The promise of the summit...
One of the sweetest traditions in the explorers guild is the consumption of victory cookies from the top of a summit. These can be any kind of cookie, though a favorite of Dr. Professor's is one that combines the heartiness of oatmeal with the sweetness of chocolate chips and cinnamon. It's a straight forward recipe that will delight any explorer on any summit.
