If it makes you happy, it can't be that bad. Right? Yes, thank you Sheryl Crowe. So here is my thought. If you make it at home, it can't be that bad. Right? Yes, thank you MaiTreat!
But really, when you make something yourself, you know exactly what goes in to it. You control everything. There isn't some weird preservative to extend the shelf-life, you can take out ingredients that you don't like (raisins always seem to get a bad rap...), and best of all you put a bit of your love into it. Remember though, if you lick the spoon while you are dropping cookies on to a pan, you are also sharing that little extra love with whoever is lucky enough to receive a cookie. No one really wants to get that type of surprise, but then again, who will ever know. Right? Our little secret.
Follow the cookie brick road!
