Cookies for your inner geek

Science Cookies

Cookies are not generally geeky things, they fall more into the “all around” category of things that can be enjoyed by anyone. But once you move away from chocolate chip and peanut butter and into more complex cookies, it’s only natural that things will sometimes go to far. Besides, didn’t anyone ever tell you that baking was a science? Today, The Huffington Post celebrates all of the Geekiest Cookies Ever with a big gallery that features everything from Periodic Table Cookies to gingerbread men clad in lab coats.

Most of the innovative cookies featured come from the very creative Not So Humble Pie, who has been putting a nerdy twist (in a good way!) on cookies for quite some time now. I am particularly fond of the containment suit cookies and the gel electrophoresis cookies, although of course the Wii controllers look very tasty, too. You can also find two more big galleries of Science Cookies on her site.
