Episode Summary

Crunch! Maria, Luis and Elmo are picking apples from the tree Maria and Luis planted many years ago when Cookie Monster gets a brilliant idea—a chocolate chip cookie tree!

Cookie Monster plants a chocolate chip in dirt and tries to help the "seed" grow. It doesn't work, so Abby grants him a wish. Poof—a bunch of cookie trees pop up right around Hooper's Store! But Abby's wand spins out of control, and now the cookies are too high for Cookie Monster and Elmo to reach.

Abby says a rhyme to get rid of the cookie trees, and they disappear. Just then, Maria and Luis give Cookie Monster a freshly baked apple cinnamon cookie made from apples they picked from their tree. Chocolate chip cookies are delicious, but these cookies are just as yummy!

Enjoy a healthy treat with your child as you watch this episode together.
