Cake Poll: Oops, Make that a Cookie Poll!

Time for another poll!
It's that unique time of year that summer starts to fade into early fall; the skies are a piercing blue, days are getting shorter, and school's back in session. Even those who are long out of school are not impervious to the allure of this season, nostalgically recalling the excitement newness of a new school year, punctuated by freshly sharpened pencils and maybe a brand new trapper keeper. And what else goes better with back to school time than milk and cookies at the end of the day? 

And so, this month our Cake Poll is not about cake, but rather cookies--and the winner will get the framed original painting, featuring Cuppie and Robot making cookies, featured above! Responses may be entered in the comments section or emailed to jessieoleson@gmail.com.

 

 

  1. What is your favorite type of cookie?
  2. Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips?
  3. Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess?
  4. Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever?
  5. Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough?
  6. Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely?
  7. Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked?
  8. Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right?

The fine print: The poll will be closed at 2 p.m PST on Thursday, September 4 (we're leaving it open for a week since we hope many of you are avoiding your computers over the holiday weekend!). As usual, the winner will be chosen at random. Entries from the US and beyond are welcome. Your info will never be shared and these questions are solely motivated by our nosy spy tendencies. Of course, if you don't win, you can always buy Cakespy artwork and gear at jessieoleson.etsy.com!


Time for a new poll--and a new prize!

I love your polls!

1- Favorite? The one that is closer to me.

2- I don't have nothing aginst using both. ;)

3- Deliciousnesssss (but only when we're talking about plain cookies, not with fillings)

4- Only if I make the dough myself!

5- Too much and cookies never should be aplied in the same sentence.

6- I would say they're cousins with the cookies.

7- Under! You can always bake them again if you want, but if they're overbaked they're no salvation...

8- You've gotta taste it before you bake it! Imagine it tastes nasty, you'll save the energy you would spent on the oven to bake it!

# What is your favorite type of cookie? Quadruple chocolate cookies (white, milk and dark chocolate chips and dark cocoa)
# Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips? Definitely chocolate chips, because I don't like raising. But I'd rather have the oatmeal cookies without added goodies
# Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess? Depends on the type of cookie. Speculaas must be dunked, other cookies not...
# Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever? Guilty pleasure. I'm a student, so not enough time...
# Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough? Too much, I don't understand the overload of sugar you Americans seem to like...
# Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? Different category, since I've never seen them in the cookie-isle in Holland, only in the same isle as the cereal bars...
# Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked? Underbaked, I love a bit of uncooked cookiedough in the middle :)
# Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right? So right!! Sometimes I just eat all the dough instead of baking it (miniportion of dough of course, don't overdo it ;) )

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterMiri

What is your favorite type of cookie? - Oatmeal - chewey, nutty and full of raisins.

Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips? chocolate doesn't belong in an oatmeal cookie!

Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess? only if it's a crunchy cookie

Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever? good for a quick craving fix (for baked or unbaked alike!)

Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough? often the crispy/cakey/chewy ratio is all off, so i'd prefer more little cookies over one huge cookie

Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? just not the same

Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked? under under under

Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right? half the reason to bake cookies!

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterAmmy Lea

What is your favorite type of cookie? Shortbread or custard creams

Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips? Raisins

Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess?
Necessity!

Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever? Don't know what these are!


Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough? Usually too soft for me - I like a crisp biscuit.

Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? Don't know what these are!

Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked?
Slightly over - a biscuit has to be crisp.

Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right? I'd have to be pretty hungry to think this was a good idea!

What is your favorite type of cookie? Chewy Molasses Ginger

Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips? Definitely with Raisins!

Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess? Dunked in Tea = very good

Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever? Just once...

Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough? Just enough to share

Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? Whole different category, but still tasty

Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked? Underbaked

Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right? I think that this is actually better than eating the fully baked cookies

What is your favorite type of cookie? Spritz Butter Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips? Neither!

Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess? Depends on the cookie: chocolate chip or sandwich cookies? so delicious. Most others, not so much.

Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever? Guilty pleasure.

Jumbo bakery cookies: Too much, and they rarely get the texture right because they are so big. The edges get overdone while they are cooking the middle, or they are too crumbly to hold their big shape.

Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? Not cookies at all.

Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked? Slightly underbaked.

Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right? So right! I get upset every year because my husband's family makes Christmas cookies, but my mother-in-law won't let me eat the dough. That's the best part!

August 29 | Unregistered Commenterelemenopea

What is your favorite type of cookie? It's a peanut butter, chocolate, pretzel, caramel cookie that my son and I made up together...if you want the recipe, just let me know. It is AWESOME!

Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips? Chocolate chips, I have bad childhood memories of raisins...lol

Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess? OH SO good in ice cold milk or steaming hot cocoa.

Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever?
I am an equal opportunity baker, but I LOVE fresh homemade and simply will tolerate slice and bake.
Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough?
too much for me. I want the option to stop eating...I can't leave left overs when it comes to cookies.

Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? I think a different category, but if they want to be called cookies...let em...they still taste great!

Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked?
OOoooooo, SLIGHTLY UNDERBAKED! (and raw of course :))
Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right?
Oh and look at this question...YOu HAVE to eat the cookie dough! It is a requirement....didn't you know that???

Looking forward to the results...I hope I win! (doesn't everyone??) If ya wanna throw in the cuppie geek, I would be ok with that too...I am sooooo in love!

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterC.L.

1) Chocolate chip!
2) Chocolate chips, no question.
3) Soggy mess.
4) Guilty pleasure, but I have a hard time getting past the slice part to the bake part before eating them...
5) You can never have too much cookie!
6) More of a sub-category, I guess.
7) Slightly underbaked is the best way to eat a cookie.
8) So right!

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterBrittany

1. Really Close between Mocha Walnut and Peanut Butter AND Oatmeal Raisin
2. Both! Plus Chopped Walnuts!
3. Totally Circumstantial. Depends on the cookie and the drink...
4. Never Ever, unless you're just eating the cookie dough itself
5. Big is better, but Bakery is bad. I'm all about Homemade.
6. In between, not exactly a cookie, but still fits in under the umbrella term of cookie nevertheless.
7. Slightly underbaked- Gooey is best!
8. So, so right!

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

# What is your favorite type of cookie? Snickerdoodles
# Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips? Raisins!
# Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess? Mmmm....yummy.
# Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever? Never tried 'em
# Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough? Too much, these days. Of course, if the kids see me...then it's just enough, after they take their share!
# Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? Entirely different category
# Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked? This depends on the cookie!
# Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right? As in eating it with a spoon?? Never tried :) I prefer them baked!

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterI Wonder Woman

1) So many cookies to chose from! But it has to be the classic Homemade fresh from the oven chocolate chip cookie
2) Oatmeal cookies with raisins-to make it nice and healthy after adding all that butter and sugar...
3) I LOVE dunking my cookies, especially Oreos! The mushier the better!
4) Guilty pleasure- I don’t have time to bake all the time. I work 40 hours a week and sometimes I want a nice hot cookie. Nothing to feel guilty about!
5) Jumbo cookies are just enough- I love to share them with my husband.
6) I don’t think bar cookies can be considered cookies. Anything where you bake and slice should not be considered a cookie.
7) Slightly under baked-I love the soft buttery texture that slightly under baked cookies have.
8) I LOVE RAW COOKIE DOUGH!!!-sometimes when I make cookies I eat more raw dough than cooked cookies.

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterThe Sugar Flower

What is your favorite type of cookie? **chocolate chip, such a classic!

Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips? **raisins

Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess? **a soggy mess, unless we're talking about fig newtons, I can't eat them unless they are dunked in milk!

Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever? **Never ever

Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough? **way too much

Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? **I think they're different

Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked? **slightly underbaked, I love the gooey middle

Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right? **wait, some people think it's wrong?!

1. What is your favorite type of cookie? Oatmeal raisin, I think.

2. Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips? Both, and also some coconut for extra magic.

3. Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess? Depends on the cookie - really crisp ones, definitely, while really soft ones are meant for gobbling whole.

4. Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever? Exceptionally rarely, and generally only those sugar ones that have pictures in the middle.

5. Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough? Too much unless you can share with a friend!

6. Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? Definitely cookies, in which case maybe I need to change my favorite.

7. Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked? Underbaked. Gooey is almost always better than burned.

8. Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right? If it's wrong, I don't wanna be right.

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterMiss E

1. Really soft butter cookies. Yum.
2. Chocolate chips, as I find raisins vile.
3. Deliciousness!
4. Guilty pleasure
5. Way too much, but fun to split with a friend!
6. Bar cookies are their own category, I think.
7. Underbaked. Yummm, soft gooey cookies.
8. If it is wrong to eat cookie dough, then I don't want to be right.

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterRebekah

1) soft and slightly salty chocolate chip cookies
2) chocolate chips of course!
3) soggy mess...unless the cookies are biscotti...then yes you dunk!
4) if you are referring to anything store bought...then never ever! Slice and bake homemade - sure!
5) Jumbo cookies are great - if the cookie is good!
6) Bar cookies are not cookies - but still tasty!
7) slightly underbaked, refer back to answer #1
8) Cookie dough is the only thing that got me through University! I rarely ever eat baked cookies...I never get that far!!!

1. Snickerdoodles, especially when my sister makes them.
2. Chocolate chips. Oatmeal cookies are healthy enough without adding raisins.
3. Depends on the cookie, but I'm very partial to the Tim-Tam Slam, myself.
4. Slice-and-bake cookies are an abomination.
5. My issue with jumbo bakery cookies is less one of quantity than it is that most of them have no flavor.
6. Bar cookies are their own category. We don't group brownies with cake, right? Same thing should go for bar cookies.
7. Slightly underbaked. Give me a gooey center any time.
8. Eating cookie dough is only wrong when so much dough gets eaten that no actual cookies get made.
