Cookies Are Comforting
Are you sad you didn't think of this trope first? Have a cookie, you'll feel better,
Ok, I think I've seen this enough to be tropeable (it's cliche grandma stuff, and there's the ol' "jilted girlfriend downing a bag") but I can only think of the Matrix example. Before I flesh out a proper description, can anyone think of more? Other sweet treats like cake or pie might qualify, but aren't as iconic for this as a cookie, not sure how narrow this should be.
- In The Matrix, when the Oracle seemingly tells Neo he's not the One (actually leads him to falsely concluding it for his own good,) she gives him a cookie telling him it'll make him feel better.
