official cookie of Prairie School architecture

I hereby declare Pepperidge Farm Milano Cookies to be the official cookie of Prairie School architecture.

Milano Cookies and Prairie School architecture share common characteristics including long, simple, slender, elegant horizontal forms.

So the next time you are enjoying the work of Frank Lloyd Wright or Walter Burley Griffin, be sure to snack on the official cookie of The Prairie School: The Milano Cookie.

Ha! I love this! Thank you for declaring an official cookie for the Prairie School of Architecture. Too bad I prefer the Brussels cookies from PF though

Do you think Frank Lloyd Wright ever got upset and threw a handful of Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies at his workers?

I swear that when I visited the FLW Dana Thomas House down in Springfield I saw Milano cookie crumbs in the carpets

Do you think the Prairie School architects ate the cookies straight out of the bag or did they first put the cookies into a special tin?

The next time I visit a Prairie School house, I’m gonna leave a bag of Milano cookies. Oh wait. Mom and dad’s house already had a bag of Milano cookies on Sunday. Moose, your theory has proven true. Milano cookies and prairie school architecture does go hand-in-hand, both in theory AND in practice.
