PhD in Delicious: The Science Cookie Project

Not So Humble Pie

My husband is a bona fide scientist, so I have a special place in my heart for geeky science projects in the kitchen. The most delightful one that I've seen lately is this growing collection of science cookies from Ms. Humble, the proprietress of Not So Humble Pie. From white lab mice to petri dishes to containment suits, she's baking up quite a few science tropes in cookie form!

A petri dish cookie — this simple design might actually be within my grasp!

I love all the cookies (and cupcakes — check out the jumbo binary cupcakes) in this series. Ms. Humble is quite talented with her pastry bag and apparently accomplished in the physical sciences as well. Here are a few of my favorites, although it was quite difficult to choose favorites!

Atom Cookies
Laboratory Mice
The Periodic Table
Containment Suits
Gel Electrophoresis
