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!

1. Hmmm… Good question. Its like cupcakes, I can’t exactly choose one but they are all good. If I had to pick one, it would be black and white cookies.

2. Chocolate chips please! I hate rasins.

3. Deliciousness! All time fave Oreos and Soy Milk(can’t drink regular milk)

4. Hmmmm… Guilty pleasure.

5. One can never have a too much cookie nor just enough…

6. A cookie is a cookie isn’t it?

7. I like mine on the crispy side so I can dunk them in soy milk. Slight overbaked please. I do have one exception and that’s Toll House’s Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip cookies. Slightly underbaked goodness.

8. Oh so right! I’m a sucker for cookie dough..

1. I'd have to go with the classic Chocolate Chip Cookie. But not ANY kind of chocolate chip cookie: Thick and soft is a definite.
2. With raisins OR chocolate chips? How about BOTH? But if I had to choose, I'd say chocolate chips.
3. Dunking is a DELICIOUS soggy mess.
4. Slice and bake cookies are good if you transform them into something new: I made dark chocolate ganache filled sugar-cookie-dough that is rolled in turbinado sugar. But just plain slice and bake... I'd have to go with never ever.
5. Jumbo bakery cookies are PERFECT. No such thing as too much! You can always save the 2nd half for breakfast the next day! :)
6. Hmm...I'd have to say they're a different category entirely.
7. DEFINITELY without a doubt - slightly underbaked.
8. Cookie dough is so, so right. SO right.

August 31 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

1. Oatmeal with chocolate chips and walnuts (or pecans)

2. I could give or take the raisins, but choc. chips, yes please!

3. Soggy mess, unles it's an Oreo.

4. I only bought them when the kids were little, you know the slice and bakes with the Halloween or Xmas centers, they made a great after school treat.

5. Bit too much.

6. I say COOKIE!

7. Unabaked - give me chewy!

8. I don't like it.
