Right about now you're probably up to your eyeballs in sweets. Here's one way to off-load some cookies by transforming them into a magical sweet bread pudding. I used Becky's Persimmon Cookies here, but any cake-type cookie will work (crispy cookies are too dry to use). Since these already had raisins, almonds and spices, I just added a little more cinnamon and...Grand Marnier!

Ingredients
