Bear with me, I know this is a totally mindless and silly thread but there's been a raging battle in our house today...should cookies be chewy or crunchy? Or does the answer lay somewhere in between?

It's fall and that always means I haul out the cozy, comfort food recipes. Today, it's cranberry walnut and oatmeal cookies. The recipe is unimportant, the texture is EVERYTHING.

I think cookies should be crunchy. If I wanted chewy, I would eat a damn brownie or a piece of cake. My boys say chewy. They insist chewy. To the point that they will nuke a crunchy cookie and give me dirty looks.

I will only concede this - cookies should always be chewy straight out of the oven... but then they should firm up.

Thoughts? No hate mail please. I realize this topic might trigger childhood memories or election 2016 level partisanship.

When you say 'crunchy' are we talking Chips Ahoy crunchy?

I personally prefer just a little texture on the outside but chewy in the middle.

I'll go with "soft". The only crunchy cookie I want is a biscotti, or something with a crunchy outside and creamy filling.

BOTH

you need chrunchy ones for dipping in instant coffee

and chewy ones for munchies

i must confess - that if it come sto it i dont actually make my own biscuites - i buy chrunchy ones - when needed

and make more flapkack stylee reciepies with lots of " extras " for energy and nutrients as i now use these as ` mid meal fillers ` when i is out and about

What about folks who have trouble chewing ie: teeth, gums etc? Should they be denied? I think God made the chewy ones...so they can dunk 'em in milk too.*

*Obviously...the crunchy ones kinda hold up better with the milk when dunked

PS YUUUUUMMMMMMM!

Only the very, very middle. Like just a hint of chew. It's that exact, fleeting moment that should make you want another cookie.

As much as I like the cookies in the "alert section" they are ever so tasty and I'm not complaining either but for a change of pace, like on Thursday, could we have chips and salsa?

But to answer the question......I don't know

Sure. If beetles were also cheesy and salty, they would be the ultimate addictive food...according to science.

Then we are both in cookie concurrence.

Well, I like them chewy-ish.

I don't prefer a cake like cookie.

My Dad used to love the cookies that were left in the oven just a little too long. H also liked the edges of the brownies.

I guess everyone likes what they like but, for me, it's chewy.

I usually just feed them to the dog. He thinks the cat box is a cookie vendor.

From what I have gathered 'gooshing' is in fact the scientific term used when ice cream is forcibly expelled from a poorly constructed sandwich.

If i buy store bought cookies (oreos or chips ahoy) i prefer crunchy. If fresh baked i prefer soft. But all my cookies come a big glass of ice cold milk haha

Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip cookies, chewy out of the oven but
perfect later when they crisp up to dip in milk...and the next morning in coffee or espresso!

Yumm.......
