The State of the Cookie: A Delicious Debate
Round one was posted on Slate today; round two will be up tomorrow. When you get to the debate, you’ll be able to read Sara’s letter, then click on the number 2 to get to David’s and the number 3 to get to mine.
I’d love to hear your take on the questions that are raised. What defines a cookie for you? What does the perfect cookie look like? What size is it? What’s its texture? What makes a cookie American?
While it’s the season to bake cookies, it’s the perfect season to think about them, too. I loved the questions that Sara and David raised and I loved pondering them. For all the cookies I’ve created, baked and eaten, I don’t think I’d ever stopped to define the little sweet. Okay, I just gave away one of my prejudices — I like my cookies small. Do you?
Let me know what you think after you’ve read round-one of our debate.
