This code defines a function `cookies`

that takes an integer `k`

and a vector of integers `A`

as input. It initializes a count variable to 0 and creates a min heap using a priority queue. It then pushes all elements of vector `A`

into the priority queue.

The code then enters a while loop that continues as long as the top element of the priority queue is less than `k`

. Inside the loop, it removes the top element `a`

, and if the priority queue is empty, it returns -1. Otherwise, it removes the new top element `b`

, calculates a new value `a+2*b`

, and pushes it back into the priority queue. It increments the count variable in each iteration of the loop.

The function returns the final count value after the loop exits.
