cookie question

Going back to work after the holidays sucks. Especially when you spent most of said holiday ill.

Granted, I’m still at my parent’s home in Seattle, but I am working darn you! Not all that well though. I have to keep pausing to cough for several seconds at a time, the evil book of hell keeps freezing up my screen and my mom’s cat is now sitting on my shoulders, trying to get my attention. (I think she wants some love.)

And now the real reason I am blogging… an argument with my dad over how long cookies should be baked—I want to note here that he killed some oatmeal cookies. They are hard and ridiculously crunchy… seriously, you can crumble them up and use them as granola. He thinks they are the greatest cookies ever—”the crunchier, the better.”

I ask you my people, soft or crunchy? Don’t you love that gooey center?


  1. Crunchy.

  3. soft…as my boyfriend puts it, ‘just barely cooked’…with a warm, gooey middle. that gets all warm and gooey again when you reheat it. or dunk it in coffee. or tea…..

  5. could always crumble the dry ones in a bowl, add some milk and call it breakfast?

  6. Eh… I suppose. But that totally defeats the purpose of a cookie. My dad loves to eat them all crunchy and hard. Gag.

    Cute blog URL, LOL.

  11. Kerry… LOLOL… less baking and more taking the mix out of the box and smooshing in milk and eggs. :) He just really wanted some oatmeal cookies and I was supposed to make them.

    G.. Don’t make me come out there and just beat you with a stick Jackass.

  12. Oh there’s a 9-hour difference with France, the first test was long done yesterday… And I’ve just finished the second one. You mean you crossed your fingers at the wrong times…?!
