My mother was a baker and as soon as the weather started to turn cool in the autumn season she would bake cookies for mid-day snacks.  I always looked forward to the chewy chocolate walnut cookies and recall thinking about them on way home from school.  Sometimes I would eat the cookies when they came out of the oven, other times they were served at room temperature. It didn't matter these cookies were always mmm good.
