How do you bake your cookies?
My husband always says I have the world's largest box of scratch. I make my own cookies, so, now that my kids are grown they whine they never got Chips Ahoy. I do use boxes for my brownies because my husband prefers them but, I've got a great easy recipe to do from scratch. We have a Holiday party for about 100 and every year, I put out about 15 - 20 differents kinds of homemade cookies from scratch and people always want to take some home so, I think they must be good.
Not from scratch, that's for sure!! :)
I cook from scratch with my little man. He LOVES throwing all the ingredients in the bowl and then getting to lick the spoon when we're done. I cook eggless to avoid any possible salmonella. :)
I bake cookies from scratch, so does my thirteen year old daughter.
Definitely from scratch. They are much better and it's a great activity to do with my daughter! She loves helping me pour the ingredients into the bowl! Mmm...just made a double batch of chocolate chip cookies a couple days ago. :)
When I have the time, I make them from scratch. I love playing with recipes, and I've come up with some interesting things when I bake from scratch. This afternoon, though, I used a Betty Crocker mix to make gingerbread cookies. Since I was planning to make cutout cookies, I decided to go easy on myself with making the batter. They may have been from a bag mix, but they still smelled and tasted great, and it was so nice to have the oven on to help heat up the apartment. We had the heater on, but it was just such a bitterly cold day that the heater wasn't enough.
