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!

Why, yes, I was *just* craving some cookie action.

favorite type of cookie: oldie but goodie: dark chocolate chip with toasted walnuts

Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips?: CHOCOLATE!

Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess?:
Supreme deliciousness, but you've gotta do it quick--dunk and immediately slurp the excess soymilk (Vitasoy, unsweetened please) up off the cookie, then proceed.

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

Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough? Depends.

Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? : They're from, like, another solar system.

Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked?: Always underbaked, I like them gooey.

Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right?: It's a must do.

I am (literally) waiting for paint to dry so this is a welcome diversion!

What is your favorite type of cookie? That's like asking me to choose between my children....but, if pressed, I'd choose a crisp, buttery gingersnap.

Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips?
Raisins all the way, baby!

Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess?

Depends on the cookie and the drink. In coffee = yes. In tea= yes. In milk = no.


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

I make my own slice and bake dough.


Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough?
Totally depends on the size of my ass that day.

Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? They are squares (and no, I don't mean nerds).


Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked?

Depends on the cookie. If it has add-ins slightly under baked. If it's supposed to be crisp, slightly over is better.

Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right?

You mean some people think it's wrong?

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterDana McCauley

What is your favorite type of cookie? hmmmm, molasses or a really good chocolate chip.

Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips? I like both, but not at the same time!

Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess? eeep! soggy mess, unless they're Oreos

Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever? I used to in college to get my cookie fix, but now... never ever!

Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough? too much, I always find they're stale or too overbaked.

Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? hmmm, different category.

Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked?
I love my cookies gooey. yum.

Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right? oh so very right!

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterCoco

Fun! Love to think/talk about cookies!

1. Chocolate chip all the way
2. Both
3. Soggy mess, unless they're biscotti
4. Guilty pleasure - so great for make-ahead
5. Just enough
6. Still cookies! Although there's a fine line...some slip to the brownie side (which isn't a bad side either)
7. Recently changed my stance on this - I'm now a crispy fan, so I err on the slightly overbaked side
8. Oh so right!

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterPaniniKathy

Cool fun. Like me. Thanks.
I like http://www.przepisy.rzeszow.pl/content/torty" REL="nofollow" TITLE="Pieczenie tortów">to cook very at home. Greetings from Poland.

1. chocolate chip - forever and always
2. chocolate chips, of course
3. oreos only! because it's like being a kid again
4. perfect for when i am lazy and will not find making the dough fun
5. a perfect occasional treat!
6. same category because they are half cookie - kind of like the offspring of a cookie and a blondie
7. underbaked because then you get a delicious doughy center
8. soooooooooooo right and so yummy

August 29 | Unregistered Commenterjenna

1 What is your favorite type of cookie?
chocolate chip with frosting
2 Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips?
craisins (dried cranberries)!
3 Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess?
dunking! (in soy milk)
4 Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever?
never ever ever
5 Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough? just enough
6 Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely?
different, but just as good
7 Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked?
underbaked, without a doubt
8 Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right?
so very right (vegan cookies = no raw egg fears! yay!)

August 29 | Unregistered Commentervegancookies

1. I'm torn between ginger snaps, biscotti, and sugar cookies.
2. Soft with raisins, all the way!
3. Dunking cookies into a nice hot coffee or tea = amazing.
4. Tolerable, but never the same
5. Way too much.
6. A cookie is a cookie, no matter its shape.
7. Depending on the cookie, I'd say slightly under.
8. So wrong.

1. Chocolate Chip Cookies
2. Both
3. Soggy mess
4. Guilty pleasure
5. Too much
6. Different category
7. slightly over baked
8. So right

August 29 | Unregistered Commentercndymkr / jean

1. cinnamon sugar
2. raisins
3. soggy mess
4. guilty pleasure
5. too much
6.completely different catagory. Either the shape or the bulk create a different consistancy from a regular cookie.
7. Overdone- but my mother burnt most everything from meat to baked goods, so that's how I learned to eat 'em.
8.Chocolate chip cookie dough- so right! Some other cookie dough- probably wrong...

August 29 | Unregistered Commenterfeathermar

1. Ricotta cheese cookies--to die for!
2. Raisins--gotta get your fruits somehow.
3. Delicious! ?
4. Cookie batter is the easiest batter to make--why fudge it with premade dough? They don't taste that good, anyway!
5. A bit much for me.
6. Hmm more brownies. Still great!
7. Always, always, always underbaked. Overbaked cookies are an atrocity.
8. Mmm best part of cookie baking...

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

1. It's probably a tie between chocolate chip and peanut butter. Regardless of the cookie, though, I like mine soft!
2. I prefer raisins in oatmeal cookies, but I wouldn't turn down chocolate chips.
3. I don't dunk cookies. Since I like soft ones, they break in the glass and make nasty cookie sludge at the bottom.
4. It only takes 10min to whip together a batch of dough, so why not go for homemade?
5. Is it really possible to have too much cookie?
6. They're cookies. I like them... Magic Bars (aka Hello Dolly Bars and Seven Layer Bars) are my favorite bar cookies!
7. No question- underbaked. I don't like crunchy cookies.
8. If eating cookie dough is wrong, then I don't wanna be right.

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterPumpkin

1.Well i have many favorites. I like Snickerdoodles because that is my dog's name and i like any chocolate cookies.
2. Definitaly with chocolate chips!
3. Soggy mess! They get to wet and then all you taste is milk. And i'm 16 so milk is yucky to me!
4. NEVER EVER, Homemade all the way. It i the cheating way to make cookies.
5. JUMBO COOKIES ROCK. I say the more the better.
6. I'd say differnet catagory, they are more like brownies. And for some reason they include brownies in the cookie section. THEY ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!
7. Slightly underbaked or not baked at all, COOKIE DOUGH IS GOD"S GIFT TO MAN!!!!
8. As i said before a blessing from god. And the smarty pants who put it in ice cream, they are one of the smartest people i'll never be able to meet.
GO COOKIES!!!!!!

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterCaitycake

1. What is your favorite type of cookie? Chocolate chip, fresh from the oven!
2. Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips? Definitely chocolate chips. Both aren't bad either!
3. Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess? Absolutely delicious. The mess only adds to the decadence.
4. Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever? Guilty pleasure, for sure.
5. Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough? Just enough! I'll take a dozen!
6. Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely? They're not cookies, they're bars!
7. Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked? Slightly underbaked for maximum deliciosity.
8. Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right? So, so, so so right.

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth

1. Chocolate chip, made with Skor bars.

2. I don't mind raisins, but would prefer chocolate chips! They're really good with dried cherries, too.

3. A soggy mess :(

4. I've used them before when my kids were small, but now if I can't make them myself I'd rather not buy the dough. There's too many weird things in processed foods these days.

5. Mmmm...they are too much, but that's what's so good about them, isn't it?

6. They're a little bit of each...when thin, it's a cookie! When made thick, they're more like a squished brownie/blondie than a cookie.

7. I like slightly overcooked and crisp cookies. But there is also a soft spot (hahaha) for the occasional underbaked cookie.

8. It's never been my thing. I don't even like cookie dough ice cream.

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterOwl Chick

1. Snickerdoodles. I LOVE snickerdoodles.

2. While raisins are traditional, I love chocolate chips in just about everything.

3.Definetly delicious.

4.They're convient and some kinds are really good, so, guilty pleasure.

5.Sometimes not enough. Sometimes
you just want more sugar than they're willing to give you.

6.I think they're cookies. They're loaded with sugar and all sorts of goodies. How could they not be cookies?

7.Slightly overbaked. Underbaked cookies can sometimes be gooey, and that's not always a good thing.


You have no idea how right it is. Salmonella is just an excuse made up by people who never understood the joys of unbaked goodness.

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterCillanoodle

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterPeabody

What is your favorite type of cookie?
a) HOMEMADE

Oatmeal Cookies: With raisins, or chocolate chips?
a) chocolate chips, please

Dunking your cookies: Deliciousness, or a soggy mess?
a) gross and soggy

Slice n' bake cookies: Guilty pleasure, or never ever?
a) not for me--they are too sweet

Jumbo bakery cookies: too much, or just enough?
a) Too much when they're bad, and not enough when they're good.

Bar cookies: are they really cookies, or a different category entirely?
a) depends. Lemon bars, brownies and the like are kind of different altogether. But if you just smear cookie dough in a pan...it's just a square cookie.

Which is better: Slightly underbaked or slightly overbaked?
a) slightly underbaked so they're a gooey mess inside.

Eating cookie dough: so wrong, or so right?
a) if it's wrong, I don't want to be right.

oh, these are such fun.

1. oatmeal scotchies.

2. either golden raisins or none at all.

3. soggy mess--i'll take my glass of milk on the side.

4. never ever...yet.

5. not enough. or never enough. :)

6. different category, but no less delicious (and way easier)

7. underbaked, definitely.

8. so right. so very right.

1. Snickerdoodles....mmmm!
2. BOTH!
3. soggy mess, so not my thing!
4. never ever! no transfat for me!
5. too much....
6. so totally a different category :)
7. Tough choice there, I'd have to say slightly underbaked... a little gooey never hurts!
8. so wrong, so why does it feel so right?!

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda Sevall

So, bummer...I had to take my blog private for a while, but I emailed you with an invite. Do you have a Cake Gumshoe in Chicago already?

1. Choc chip, no nuts

2. No raisins, choc chips optional

3. Dunking is Deliciousness

4. Nope, not so much.

5. Too much and often look better than they taste.

6. I love a bar cookie, but not really a cookie...they're a bar.

7. Slightly underbaked

8. So wrong and yet so tasty, but as I get older I get grossed out just a little.

August 29 | Unregistered CommenterGeggie

1. Ooh, this is hard. Probably the no-bake chocolate-oatmeal-peanut butter ones that my mom calls Preacher Cookies.
2. I actually like them plain, without either, and then it's probably a tie between raisins and chips.
3. I lean toward soggy mess, though an occasional dunk is OK.
4. Oh, guilty pleasure for sure.
5. Too much for one, but perfect to share.
6. I think bar cookies are really cookies.
7. Underbaked, for sure.
8. The most right thing in the world. :)
