Residents and staff at the La Porte City Nursing & Rehab facility were the recipients of a big cookie, a REALLY BIG COOKIE, last week, courtesy of Rick Foss and Dale Widner of Pizza Palace.  The chocolate chip cookie measured three feet in diameter and took just five minutes to bake, albeit in a 500 degree oven.

Foss said he and Dale were just messing around and wanted to try it out.  Following the chocolate chip cookie, the duo baked an oatmeal raisin cookie, enjoyed by residents and staff. While the super-sized cookies are not part of the Pizza Palace menu, The Progress Review has it on good authority that the treats scored high on the tasty meter!
