The eating, of course! Although the baking (and especially the smell) is fun too.
For me, nothing beats shortbread (unadulterated, without
sugar sprinkled on top). I've tried all sorts of experiments with chocolate, frosting (yes, really), cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla and various 'flavourings'.
I've even tried different types of flour (a gluten-free flour produced a completely different texture for example), but I always return to the original and delightfully simple 3-ingredient recipe.
Hmmm...time to get baking!
