I prefer to bake them. That way I know what goes into them. Also, its a nice way of introducing my kids to cooking because they love to come and help. It's fairly quick for us, we can whip up a batch in 20 minutes plus baking time, 10 minutes if I don't have helpers, and the warm cookies are a dream. Pity none of them last the hour once cooked.
I prefer to make my own, having said that my oven doesn't work!
But will get back to it one day.
I also like certain one's from the shop....but I bet with time and effort, I could make them just as good.
There is something rather wonderful, inside your home with the smell of baked cookies.
That's a smell money can't buy!
If I had the time I would bake cookies as often as I could. Love it when the house smells like freshly baked cookies. My kids are no major fans of store bought cookies so I don't buy cookies that much. If I don't bake, then there are no cookies at home :(
Home baked cookies are the BEST! So delicious when they're straight out of the oven and lovely and warm. They're the best. Plus you can change the recipe to include more of what you like. I'm partial to including more chocolate in all of my recipes!
This totally depends on my mood. I prefer eating homemade cookies but sometimes I just don't have the time or the will. It doesn't help that the local grocers triple chocolate cookies are absolutely delicious ;)
I prefer to bake biscuits. There are some nice home style ones available in the shops but baking is satisfying and as others have said, the smell is so welcoming. When I was much younger I had a large collection of biscuit cutters and used to enjoy making biscuits in lots of shapes.
