I would do half and half.
I love my own home made biscuits and they are far healthier in that I use coconut sugar instead of refined sugar.

However I always keep a few packets of biscuits in case I have nothing.

I often bake a cake but then sometimes freeze half of it as I am on my own and love cooking/baking.

I rely on shop bought. I would like to have the time to make my own though

I only buy these on the rare occasion when I do not have the time to bake. Home bake is always nicer.

I rely on shop bought. Both the old favourites and some imported delicacies.
I'd like to think home made were better for everyone and tasted better - but in my opinion, the don't. Certainly isn't any cheaper to make your own.
I prefer to bake my own because i think transfats, high sugar content , high salt, chemicals, are in commercial biscuits and cakes, I prefer to use a little honey and organic high quality products that i can be sure are healthier.
Also i like to make and try different recipes, taste is better and the time is well spent to.

I stopped baking 9 yrs ago, I now just buy shop bought ones.
Too easy :)
My son loves chocolate digestives, so those have to be bought! But equally he is very fond of shortbread and that is best made at home. He is very good at helping make it!
Ooooh!!! Chocolate Digestives! Yummmmmm!!! I also LOVE these,and always treat myself to some when I see them on special!! As you say though,some biscuits are far better to make at home. I'd make my own shortbread and wrap it for gifts at Christmas time. As I mentioned in my own reply,having an egg allergy,I find that making biscuits has always been a sensible and easy thing for me to do;however,there are some which I feel are beyond MY baking skills!!! An example? Chocolate Digestives!!!!!

No one here really eats biscuits so it's normally the shop bought ones stored in the cupboard.
I do buy biscuits but only very high quality ones! The ones I make at home are totally egg-free as I have a bad allergy to them!
I prefer store bought ones, but I'm afraid I like to pretend I don't have time to whip them up myself.

I meant, I prefer home baked ones! It's getting late. Time for me to turn in for the night.

I buy mine, don't have the patience to bake
Buy. No longer interested in baking.
I rarely bake and occasionally buy biscuits as a treat but mostly I try not to have them in the house. I only like a few types anyway - Arnott's Orange Slice and Malt O Milk and TimTams.
Yes, I like the biscuits I make much more than shop bought ones. I learnt to make biscuits from an Afghani friend. She adds cardamom and pistachio ground with a little sugar that makes them different and more tastier than other bought biscuits.

until recently, it was "Shop bought" biscuits. BUT because both Coles & Safeway are removing more & more good favourtie brands & types, I have started baking my own again out of sheer frustration. I've even improved in varieties using different essences, dried fruits and spices we now have available to us, that were unheard of in my mother & grandmother's time.
Supermarket's cost, quality, & variety are so disappointing now. I have found their own label bics unworthy - missing good flavour, awful texture, smaller sized, less in packet and more chemicals than ever before. Many varieties do not deserve their shelf space. It makes a mockery of the horrendous prices which they keep putting up.

I wanted to make a Choc. Ripple Cake last week, only to discover this wonderful biscuit has SHRUNK dramatically, to the point that it rendered my intended cake a Sweet Nibble now instead of the substantial results previously achieved.
Biscuits imported from NZ, China, SthAfrica, Yugoslavia, Chile, UK & USA are NOT what I want to buy.
Many imported bics are far too sweet - sickly sweet, and have some very odd additives. Why should we buy their products at the LOSS of our own? Including the LOSS of our JOBS.
I only buy good ol Arnotts. Yum !!

We are not big biscuit eaters so I keep a packet of biscuits in the cupboard, in case we get people dropping in. I used to bake a lot, but if there is no one home to eat them, it means my husband and I have to eat them all, so I rarely bake nowadays.
I used too, years ago make my own, but since our oven stopped working, Iíve resorted to the bought ones unfortunately.
I used to always make my own biscuits until our oven stopped working, a few years ago now! So yes, I'm afraid I have since had to buy them. (1 each for every afternoon tea, when we don't have a crumpet each!)

(Or raisin toast!)

I usually buy them, although I know they would be better freshly baked, sometimes I don't have the time for it, perhaps I should put some time aside, because I love freshly baked anzacs.
