In the Kitchen: Pie Are Round, Cookie Are Square*

Admission of the Day: I can't make a round cookie, no matter how hard I try. This is my latest batch of mint-chocolate chippers and they're once again squareish because I can't gauge the amount of dough to put on the pan correctly.

I know if I gear it down, put them a bit further apart (and bake two batches of nine and six that I'll have round-er cookies, but I'm still not sure they will be, like really round.

But they taste good. Damn good. And no, I'm not eating them. Diabetes says "no." They're a bribe for somebody.

(*With apologies to the late commedian Brother Dave Gardner who said, "Pi are square; cornbread are round.")


  1. Put 'em in a muffing pan. Voila, round cookies.

  2. Damn, I said muffing. That definitely wasn't what I meant.
