    A police officer held a golden Leibniz cookie in front of the Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany today. It is still not clear if the cookie belongs to the Bahlsen House, which reported theft in January. The thief demanded that cookies be delivered to children at a city hospital.

BERLIN » German police have recovered a cookie sculpture that may have been stolen by someone impersonating the Cookie Monster.

Spokeswoman Jacobe Heers says the 44-pound gilded sculpture was found this morning outside a university. It was hanging from the neck of a horse sculpture with a red ribbon.

The century-old cookie was reported stolen last month from the office of a bakery company in Hannover.

A local newspaper later received a letter demanding cookies be delivered to children at a hospital. The paper also received a picture of someone dressed like Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster holding what appeared to be the stolen cookie.

The Bahlsen company promised a reward of 52,000 packets of cookies for a charitable cause if their emblem turned up.

No suspect has been apprehended.
