Putting a ratchet strap around the outside edge of a cookie will allow you to ad pressure while it dries. Every so often, tighten it up as it shrinks. This prevents major splits during drying process. It still may split after you take it off. My success has been good.
The 1" rule of thumb is a poor one. Plus a cookie will dry much faster than a board. Much faster.
If we remove the core by drilling a large hole, it is now possible for the radius to decrease, and large cracking is prevented.
