Cookie Baking - How Do You Like It?

Hope everyone in internet land is having a great day,

I've got some lovely cookies in the oven, and I'm trying a new recipe.
For those of you that make cookies do you enjoy the experience of baking or the end result ie: eating (tasting). And by that I mean those of you who know more than just the chocolate chip recipe

Baking. I rarely eat what I bake.

I enjoy both the baking and the eating. It is a pleasure baking cookies for my children and grandchildren - or other relatives and friends. The best tasting seem to be the ones my granddaughters help me bake - even if all they did was lick the spoon.

And, yes - I make more than just chocolate chip cookies - and made from scratch!

I enjoy baking cookies but I find I enjoy it more when I make it into a marathon event and bake several different kinds in one day. I don't bake them as much as I used to since it's just me and DH at home and we DEFINITELY don't need the sweets hanging around.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I enjoy baking cookies, too. It's a quick way to satisfy my sweet tooth when it acts up. And it's nice to have plenty left over in case it attacks me unexpectedly.

I love to bake cookies. They are so tasty and easy to make, and quick. I mean you can make simple chocolate chip cookies, or you can make more complex cookies.

Just been baking chili and chocolate cookies. I have been experimenting and had to have 2-3 to see how they turned out. I like the hint of chili taste with chocolate, it is lovely with cup of coffee.

I don't bake a lot of cookies. SO is mostly responsible for that. I do bake from time to time but my forte is eating them with a cold glass of milk.

I tend to enjoy baking cookies more than eating them. Bread on the other hand is more of my thing to bake and enjoy.
