Soft Cookies

This is the yummiest, spiciest, tastiest ginger snap cookie you'll ever see, much less eat.  It is currently residing in my small intestine.Apparently I’m on a “which do you like better” kick. I am a BIG fan of soft cookies. In fact, I mean BIG in a literal sense because eating cookies has that effect on me. I never knew anyone that preferred hard cookies until the other day I was approached with the idea that soft cookies don’t maintain their structural integrity while being dunked.

You know, that’s actually a good point.

I always considered cookie-dunking a workaround designed to facilitate the consumption of hard cookies. I never really thought of it as a preferred method. Don’t get me wrong, I like to dunk cookies, but I always do it because they’re hard in order to soften them up.

Have I been to quick to judge the crumbly ones? Are the crumbs all over the table worth it for the joy of drowning them in a beverage of choice? Does anyone actually prefer hard cookies?!!?

  1. I like crunchy things, so the hard, crunchy cookies are my preference. I don’t dunk often, but only because I don’t like crumbs in my drinks, though the flavor of a crunchy cookie dunked in coffee is very yummy.

    Soft cookies are okay if I’m having a cookie craving and nothing else is available. But they will never be my first choice.

  2. Soft cookies, definately. Soft cookies are great w/o dunking, and depending on the cookie, sometimes the edges are a little firmer, so they could be removed and dunked if desired.

  3. I’ve never understood dunking either, because I like my cookies to be dry, thanks.

    And hard, of course. Crunchy pwns gooey any day.

    Note: the above only applies to cookies. Biscuits should NEVER be hard and dry.

  4. MWT, you are correct about biscuits – soft and flaky are the only way to go.

    And Shawn, those Star Wars people are just wrong – they’re living a delusion.

    *ducks and runs*

  5. Cookies. Freshly made, still warm and thus soft, cookies. They’re best. But good cookies can be either hard or soft.

    And no dunking. I never understood dunking, except maybe to make hard cookies or other objects soft. And if you wanted it soft, why not start with the soft version?
