... Cookies.

Get your mind out of the gutter.

Do you think cookies should be hard or soft?

Now, bit of a stupid question because it could depend on the type of cookie, but let's just use Chocolate Chip, the all time classic as our example.

To me, a cookie should be more on the soft side, chewie.

What say you?

Actually was thinking Taco's from the title.

But soft is better.

Soft cookies are the only way to go.

If I'm eating a cookie, I better not suddenly feel a chip in my tooth after I swallow.

I voted "hard," but I would prefer to use the term "crisp," like those buttery thin-baked chocolate chip cookies. Those are my favorites.

Its not even a comparison to me. Cookies should be soft and warm. When I think of hard cookies I think of those disgusting cardboard mass produced cookies.

Home made molasses cookies, out of the oven with butter and a glass of milk

It depends on the cookie. Some examples:
-- I like hard ginger snaps, but if they sit out too long and get soft, I'll still eat them. LOL
-- I like soft chocolate chip cookies.
-- I like hard Pepperidge Farms' hard and soft cookies, but I mostly go for Pirouettes, Bordeaux, Brussels and Milano cookies from them, so more hard than soft.
Frankly, though, I care more about how a cookie tastes than I do about whether it's soft or hard. There's likely no cookie I wouldn't eat on account of its being hard.

You can keep your cakes and pies and ice cream, I'll have a good soft chocolate chip cookie any day over most desserts.
Maybe too good though, I find it hard to stop eating them.

Take chocolate chip cookie dough, and bake it in a brownie pan.








You're welcome.

Not at all, always hated them growing up. never understood why anyone likes them.

Oh, okay. So you weren't being sarcastic. Fine, more for me.

I like them because I think they taste good....There's little I don't like about the combination of ginger and sugar...the flour in the cookie is merely a base that carries those two elements to my tongue.

Not too soft, but more chewy.
My mind is on the upcoming holidays.

My family's favorite... Molasses cookies

1-1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup molasses
4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons baking soda
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup coarse sugar
Directions
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and molasses. Combine the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Fold in pecans.
Shape into 2-in. balls and roll in coarse sugar. Place 2-1/2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 13-15 minutes or until tops are cracked. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Preach it. Eliminates all those thin crispy, wasted edges.

We do a blonde brownie for Christmas that is essentially just what you described.
I do special occasions on the pizza pan making a round one like the shops in the mall. Perfection.
