Hello all you imaginative bakers/decorators. I'm desperately trying to come up with a clever cookie to make for my Philosophy department. I can't come up with anything other than apples or brains. There are great examples of both here on CC, but I'd like to come up with something "philosophical." I'm graduating and want to show my appreciation to the department in a clever and tasty way icon_smile.gif. Any thoughts?

hmm - I voted for other because I think there is something better - I will think about it and get back to this thread! icon_smile.gif

Also voting for other. LOL don't think I'd want to eat brain cookies icon_smile.gif

Someone else asked about relax/spa cookie ideas earlier, and I suggested just cookies with words on them, like conversation hearts sort of - would something like that work. Great philosophers names or key words or phrases?

Good luck.

Or even books with philosophical phrases or philosopher's names? I'm still thinking.

Thanks for the ideas. I'm still undecided. I do like the brain cookies, but I have a science background. I don't know that the philosophers will appreciate them the way I do. Like LeckieAnne wrote, I don't know if too many people would like to eat brains. Still thinking...

Serious suggestion: "The Thinker" statue.

Warped suggestion: a goblet of Hemlock icon_lol.gif

But serious again....Philosephers don't associate with "brains" or "apples", that says Teacher or Scientist, not Philosipher. (ok, I can't spell tonight)

Other ideas I can think of are maybe Books or Quill pens.

I think you should make QUESTION MARK cookies. Pondering the universe..human behavior...they question everything!!!

Hemlock...ha ha. I love it. Maybe some froth at the top icon_smile.gif. All these suggestions are great. I haven't thought of a lot of them. The brain idea comes from a philosophical question..."Are we just a brain in a vat?"
