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.

    A sub-trope of Comfort Food.

    ^Ah ok, that would cover cake and pie then, lets see if this warrants a page for just cookies.
