    I make them from scratch all the time, so I guess I’m the grandma too! I think the pre-made dough is expensive, and I don’t really like the taste.

    I LOVE baking (I am not as great of a cook) so I bake evrything from scratch!  My Fiance is not a big fan of dessert but loves cookies so we always seem to have a fresh batch.

    Seriously though they only take like 15 minutes to make and are so much better (and cheaper) than the premade dough why wouldnt you make them from scratch??  Next time I am at the grocery store I am going to start checking out what people buy 😉

    I always make mine from scratch. It’s so easy and they taste so much better! I also learned to make them when I was really young…I have the recipe memorized at this point lol. 

    Recommended: Freezing balls of the dough so you can eat them straight out of the freezer. SO GOOD.

    I’ve been baking cookies with my mom since I was a child too, and I still love homemade cookies. But sometimes Fiance and I buy the tub of chocolate chip cookie dough, because then we can just make a few, and don’t have an entire batch sitting around. 🙂

    Cookies from scratch are the best! To solve the problem of having a whole batch of cookies for two people, I bake off a tray or two then I spoon the rest of the dough onto a tray and pop it in the freezer for a couple of hours. Once the dough balls are frozen, I toss them into a zip baggie and just keep them in the freezer so we can bake a few whenever the urge strikes. I usually just add a minute or two to the baking time when they’re frozen.

    I don’t make cookies very often but when I do it’s from scratch.  Cakes I usually start with a box though.

    I love cooking and baking from scratch, it always tastes so much better than the premade stuff. I swear I taste something  ‘off’ with the boxed mixes. In my family and my inlaws, it’s common to bake/cook from scratch so I would be looked at weird if I didn’t!

    I’m a baking snob. I really don’t like packet mixes and bake regularly from scratch. I’m doing a charity coffee morning at work on Friday and will make at least four types of cakes/cupcakes and cookies from scratch.

    Cookies and basic cupcakes only take 5 minutes to throw together anyway!

    Pack dough into ice cube trays and pop them out and store them in a bag. It’s more convenient than storing a whole tray of cookies in the freezer. 

    World’s easiest yet tastiest PB Cookies? 

    • 1 cup sugar (i always use 3/4 cup and people say they’re delicious)
    • 1 egg
    • 1 cup peanut butter

    preheat the oven to 350°. mix the egg and pb with a fork or mixer, if you have one. add the sugar. drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet in about 1 tbsp increments. Use a fork to make the cross hatch that shows they are pb cookies. Cook for 7 or 8 mins. when they come out, they will be crazy soft and you won’t think they’re done. leave them on the tray. when they cool, they set and are ready to eat.

    I’ve used the preportioned or premade in the past, and they obviously weren’t nearly as good as homemade, so I try to make them that way, especially to avoid preservatives and stuff.

    Also, now I’m on a “diet”, so that’s the rule.  If I crave a cookie bad enough that I’m willing to shop for the ingredients and make them from scratch, I can have one.
