What Kind of Cookie Are You?

Perfectly suited to create such an assignment, Zac Young of Bravo’s Top Chef Just Desserts challenged the YouTube Next Chefs, “Make a cookie that shows your personality.”

I briefly contemplated a few of my favorites like White Chocolate Macadamia Nut and the nearly legendary Holiday Disco Cookie. But when it came down to a cookie that really explains my personality, I had to go with the Sugar Cookie. And no. It’s not because I’m so sweet.

“I’m going to eat the X.”
“I’m going to eat the head first.”
“I love the sprinkles!”
“Is that coconut?”
“Can I have the T?”

Sugar Cookies are conversation starters. You see, I make all kinds of cookies. And I always bring them to parties. People expect them. And no matter what kind of cookies I make, it’s always the colorful, fun shapes and messages spelled out in Sugar Cookies that gets the party talking… Talking about the cookies; talking to one another.

Sugar Cookies are artistic, creative, expressive and versatile. The dough is super easy to make and work with. The cookies are firm enough to hold their shape but soft and buttery enough to satisfy a real cookie-craving. And did I mention versatile?

I make Cookie Ornaments with this dough. I roll the dough into balls and fill them with jam or lemon curd. I roll them up Cinnamon Bun-Style kinda like this and I use them for ice cream sandwiches.

But I think the most important thing to note about Sugar Cookies: I never make them for myself. I don’t cut out shapes and decorate cookies for myself. I do it for others. I’m the most happy when I’m doing things for others. Communicating with others. Sugar Cookies make people smile and laugh and that’s exactly what motivates me.

I am a Sugar Cookie. What kind of cookie are you?
