Buy or Bake

Ok moms ... your four year old is having their class party & you volunteer to bring cookies for the kids to decorate. So here's the question:

Do you buy the cookies or bake the cookies?  My husband, the chef, says buy.  The kids are 4 & won't know the difference.  I say bake - I (and the other moms) will know the difference.  You gotta bake. 

I know this opinion is because of my mom who ONLY baked & even sewed all of our holiday dresses.  I couldn't look her in the eye if I bought.  Maybe that is the main reason.

What's your opinion?


  1. Bakery stuff/bought stuff tastes like crap. I ALWAYS want baked!!!! Kids know the difference. For as much crap that comes their way in a year with birthday and holiday parties, you know it is baked at home (even Betty Crocker counts) when the item is eaten. The stuff they avoid comes from the store with all that nasty, greasy icing. YUCK! They NEVER finish those treats because they are gross.

  2. Thanks for the support Michelle. I'm always short on time, so the great thing about gingerbread is you can freeze the dough! Rolled them out w/ my girls tonight. Fun & extra yummy (and no high fructose corn syrup!)
