Happy Epoch Day!

Ingredients Rise, minions! Stacks of Joy Beta Testing A snack
Today, the UNIX time counter will reach 1234567890. To honor this consequence of the number system, celebrations are being held all over the world. We had some debate at my workplace about the proper sort of ceremony to perform (I suggested setting up a token ring network using old machines), but in the end I decided to bake some cookies. The cookie recipe I followed is from allrecipes.com, and the frosting is from the Better Homes and Gardens 1978 edition (its just 6tbsp butter, 16oz powdered sugar, milk and 1.5tsp vanilla).

Note: 12345678990 in decimal = 499602D2 in hexadecimal.

Serving size: 4 bytes per cookie
