Stolen quarter for cookie? Who bought the cookie

If I stole a quarter and exchanged it for a cookie, did I buy the cookie?

Yes you bought the cookie. A better way to say it is that you bought a cookie with a stolen quarter. It's the act of stealing that's illegal regardless of what you do with what was stolen. If the person that sold you the cookie knew the quarter was stolen, they could possibly be charged with receiving stolen property also.
