Is it burnt or burned - Scott wants to know


This photo really has nothing to do with the question...Scott just pointed it out to me as a really great photo that he took in Orlando. I guess it has some elements of burning.
-------
So Scott keeps worrying that my blog name should be Burned Cookies, not Burnt Cookies. So we googled it and came up with the answer that it could go either way. But burnt sounds cuter. Is cuter a word?

BURNT Adj. -use interchangably with burned- 1. burnt - ruined by overcooking; "she served us underdone bacon and burnt biscuits" burned cooked - having been prepared for eating by the application of heat 2. burnt - treated by heating to a high temperature but below the melting or fusing point; "burnt sienna" 3. burnt - destroyed or badly damaged by fire; "a row of burned houses"; "a charred bit of burnt wood"; "a burned-over site in the forest"; "barricaded the street with burnt-out cars" burned-over, burned, burned-out, burnt-out

I also prefer "burnt", but unfortunately cuter is not a word. LOL! That's not going to stop me from saying it though.

I like burnt too. It sounds more old fashioned!

Now mom, "Cuter"? Really? I am always looking to you to lead me through vocabulary and syntax hiccups. But this one's an easy one! I believe the true phrase should be "the cutest".

Love the photo dad. You are an awesome photographer.

I prefer Burnt Cookies.. As opposed to Burned cookies.. Burnt Cookies is also the name of my blog.. Great minds think alike, perhaps?
