There are pros and cons of both sides of either buying or baking your Halloween cookies, and all of these perspectives should be thoroughly looked at before a final decision is made as to whether you should bake your own cookies, or buy them for an up coming Halloween party. After all, you want to do what's best for the health of everyone but you don't want to spend every spare moment leading up to the party elbow deep in cookie dough.
Buying the Cookies
This method is easy, and during the holidays you can even find cookies that are decorated for the special occasion. You may even be able to find a variety pack which is even better, because baking your own variety of cookies is a ton of work. On the other hand, buying cookies can be very pricey and many times you can't be sure of what the ingredients are which leaves room for issues with allergies, fat content and other hidden worries.
Baking Your Own Cookies
The most obvious downfall to this method is having to take the time to bake the cookies. And if you don't' cook much as it is, the task can seem all too overwhelming. However you can save a lot of money and you can have total control as to the ingredients that will go into your cookies. This is especially important if you have kids or friends with allergies to certain products.
You can also get your kids or other family members to help decorate them which offers a unique opportunity to spend quality time together in the kitchen, doing something that doesn't have to come out perfect. Besides if you can get them to do most of the decorating work you just cut your tasks down by a lot!
