The Gender/Cookie Theory

During this cookie season, my husband’s theory always comes up. To wit: women prefer crispy cookies, while men prefer chewy, soft ones.

At a holiday party the other day, a lady fell into the appropriate demographic. When I offered her one of my home-baked chocolate chip cookies, she asked if it was soft. Yes, I said with pride, because at my house that’s the preferred answer.

She shook her head and waved her hand at me. No thanks, she said. Ah! I said. You prefer crispy? She nodded.

What do you think? (And we’ll consider this poll scientific.) Soft or crispy? Does your preference fit your gender?

    Wait a minute! Doesn’t anybody care about what FLAVOR cookie it is?? Choc chip, peanut butter, oatmeal are best chewy! Cinnamon, sugar, lemon are best thin & crispy! What’s up with everyone?

  2. I will eat and enjoy any good cookie, crispy, chewy or anything in between. Gender…schmender!

    CHEWY! Tell Dad I still think this theory is absurd.

    I like soft and crisp cookies… matter of fact, I can’t remember eating a cookie I didn’t like at all. Hmmm… am I transgender or bigender?

    Chewy! I rebel against gender stereotypes.

    Any cookie will do me just fine!! I love all cookies. However, just like everything else I can think of, Gregg is different … he likes ’em crispy or hard so he can dunk them in milk! And for me, if someone else is doing the baking, I would never turn down or complain about a single cookie!! ♥ Happy Holidays!!!
