"While many rail against cookie-cutter design, it is only with cookie-cutters that we get lots of cookies."
-- David Levinson, in an excellent post on why transport investments cost so much.

Remember the hallowed PCC was/is a cookie cutter design.

Also remember that you typically need to forge a new, American-made cookie cutter if you want to sell even a small batch of cookies in the US.

You can also make drop cookies. Instead of rolling out the dough and carefully cutting each one to shape, you just grab a lump and plop it on the baking sheet. They come out lumpy and unique (like most chocolate chip cookies).
This would be emergent urbanism; like traditional cities (London, Cairo), as opposed to central planning, whether of the unique masterpiece variety (Paris, DC) or the cookie-cutter variety (Soviet cities, developer-built suburbs)

Yay for drop cookies! Drop cookies rule. (I've never liked having to roll the dough, then cut out the cookies, then smash up the half-of-the-dough that got left over and REROLL it...)
