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?
