About This Quiz

Some people will tell you that baking is a very precise science in a way, but cookies are not. Other people tell you the best kind of baking is baking that comes from the heart. So which is it? While it's true that you need to follow recipes very closely in baking, and proper proportions, timing and temperature are all key to ensuring a perfect product, any chef will tell you that baking is a whole different ball of wax when it comes to what you're doing in the kitchen.  At the same time, if you've ever compared a batch of your grandma's cookies to ones that you bought at the grocery store, you can tell right away that there's something to be said for baking that's been done with love.

 When it comes to decision making, it seems like everyone is either using their head or using their heart. Since baking is one of those few places where you can really see the two come together, it makes sense to determine whether you're the kind of person who's more emotional or logical based on nothing more than the way you bake cookies, don't you think? Sure you do! Grab your cookie cutters and take the quiz to find out if you're more emotional or logical.
