And don't say I shouldn't eat dessert, 'cos I'm gonna =)

I usually eat a few cookies after my main meal, and I was thinking, should I take a half-hour brake after my meal before eating the cookies, or would it matter? Just thinking about the sugar and all...

Anyways thanks

I would eat them right before or after my workout.

The only advantage I see to waiting is perhaps that "full" feeling will kick into effect and you wont eat so many cookies

the fats and protein from the main meal would slow the absorption of the sugars. i don't know how long this effect lasts, but waiting (like it was suggested) might temper the urge to overeat.
