    "A half-baked cookie is better than a raw cookie" is the sentence idiomatic?

    does it mean "something is better than nothing"?

    Default Re: A half-baked cookie is better than a raw cooki

    Welcome to the forums.

    I have never met this particular saying, and I am not sure I like the idea of a half-baked cookie any more than a raw one. It seems to be some modification of the saying "Half a loaf is better than none". and yes, the intended meaning is that something is better than nothing.
