Seagoing hockey pucks

Things have changed since my seagoing days. It looks like Seaman Zannone is panning frozen cookie dough, affectionately known as "hockey pucks" in the trades. Into the 1970s, almost everything was scratch-baked at sea.

ARABIAN SEA (July 25, 2011) -- Culinary Specialist Seaman Elizabeth A. makes gingerbread cookies in the bake shop aboard the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77). George H.W. Bush is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility on its first operational deployment conducting maritime security operations and support missions as part of Operations Enduring Freedom and New Dawn.
