Here's What We Think About Choosing Between a Cupcake and a Cookie

By now we are sure that you have heard how trendy cupcakes have become but have you heard the recent rumour that cookies are making inroads into the territory that cupcakes are currently holding? That cookies may become the new cupcakes?

What do you think? Which is better? A delicious vanilla vanilla cupcake (yes that's two vanillas) or a just-out-of-the-oven, ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie? A rich double chocolate cupcake or a chewy fudge cookie? That brings us back to our basic question...which is better a cupcake or a cookie?

What do we think? Well, there's no question in our minds that CUPCAKES rule. They are a decadent treat and cookies are just so, well, everyday. That's not to say that we don't LOVE cookies, because we do but they are, in our minds, well, a bit ORDINARY.

What do you think? We thought it would be fun to hear what YOU have to say. Whether it is cookies or cupcakes that you love, we want to hear what you have to say!

It's Your Turn! What Do You Think? Are Cupcakes Better Than Cookies?

The choices? Well, whatever cupcake you like be it a double chocolate cupcake, a marvelous maple syrup cupcake, a vanilla vanilla or even a lemon meringue cupcake versus a fresh-from-the-oven, ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie, an mmmmm good M&M Cookie, a spicy ginger cookie or whatever cookie comes first in your mind...

So, what do you think? Are cupcakes better than cookies?

You Do Not Have To Decide Between Cupcakes and Cookies

What you need then is a good cookbook with both like The Weekend Baker.

The Weekend Baker is one of the best combination cookbooks available through Amazon. It is rated 5 stars by the Amazon customers and includes "irresistible recipes, simple techniques and stress free strategies for busy people." The author, Abigail Johnson Dodge, defines the weekend baker as anyone who loves to bake but does not because they feel it is too time consuming...or for any busy cook!

Has this page given you any food for thought? Will it be a cupcake or a cookie for you? - Is it really necessary to choose?

Just like Jerry Seinfeld, I like the Black and White Cookie. It is the Yin and Yang of all cookies! ha!

Way fun! Thanks for putting all the recipes in one place!

They are both fabulous, but why not have a small one of each? I'm hungry now, thanks ;)

Jennifer Sullivan from Chicago, IL on June 03, 2010:

This is an impossible choice, I love both! But I'm a cookie loyalist first I guess! :) blessed.

I always thought they were the same thing. Comes of not having a sweet tooth. Although if you twist my arm a bit I may have one.

beautiful lens on a yummy topic. *-*Blessed*-* and featured on Sprinkled with Stardust and added to charity-lenses-for-summer-sunshine-giveaway

Both for me too please - would go great with my coffee right now :)

justholidays on May 27, 2010:

Ah... hm... er... hard to make decision! I don't like to have to choose, so I'll take both!

This lens made my tummy groan. I do like cookies but I prefer cupcakes more.

anonymous on May 25, 2010:

What a fun lens, Brenda! I would have to admit that it is a very close race with me...cupcakes nudge out cookies but only by a tiny little bite. Off to nominate this for a Summer Sunshine Award!

Nancy Tate Hellams from Pendleton, SC on May 25, 2010:

I thought it was a sad day when our public school started forbidding parents from bringing cupcakes to classroom parties but rather just healthy stuff. I think a cupcake is very healthy both physically and emotionally. I have such fond memories of classroom parties with brightly sprinkled cupcakes. Great debate for a great charity. This lens will be featured on Squidoo's Summer Sunshine Award Nominees

Hooray for cookies and cupcakes! and off to nominate this lens for the Summer Sunshine contest! Congratulations to all the charities and the super lensmasters who are participating!

Dianne Loomos on May 24, 2010:

I love the cupcake and cookie jigsaw puzzles. I do love cookies but if all that was available was cupcakes, I suppose I'd have to eat one.

Susan Deppner from Arkansas USA on May 24, 2010:

I just can't possibly decide between the two. A cookie in one hand and a cupcake in the other, that's my motto! I do love the yummy pictures on this lens! Best of success to Food for Everyone - and this lens - in the Summer Sunshine contest!

I admit I prefer cookies ... but I won't say no to a nice homemade cupcake!
