Are you a cookie monster?

What are your fave cookies? Can you restrain yourself when you open up a new bag of store bought cookies and only eat a couple or do you eat the whole bag from the start?

When baking cookies, do you start from scratch? Or cheat with the premade frozen cookie dough? When making cookies do you end up eating more then a half of the raw cookie dough or bake it all?

@tsarstepan,
I don't really like most cookies except for shortbreads and those crunchy hazelnut straws. I was raised on the damn things and my mom was a cookie obsessed happy housewife. She drove me nuts as a kid when I would have these lunches where some kind of cookie with decorations would appear.
Course Id trade em with the fat kids who would swap me an apple or tangerine(WHAT A DEAL) .My mom was fond of things in packages so I got bananas and oranges as my fruits.

Cookies, pnut butter girl scout cookies were also not so bad back then. Now they are as tasty AS THE WRAPPERS

I like the shortbread. My greatest love is oatmeal cookies in all the varieties I can think of. And there is a chocolate with coconut.

I used to eat these. They're hard to beat for a commercial cookie.

@coluber2001,
They call those Tahoes in NYC (for some reason). They're my favorite Pepperidge Farm cookies.

@glitterbag,
The Joy of Cooking has the best recipe for the ginger snaps we used to be able to buy - with the crackly top. Haven't found them in years. Also not available - yellow grapefruit juice - can only buy pink.

I had to quit buying cookies altogether. I compulsively ate each bag within a day or two of purchase. Didn't make much difference what kind they were.

@edgarblythe,
Yeah, I'm the same way. When it comes to pastries, moderation is out the window. And it doesn't matter what it is or what size it is, a cake, pie, a bag of cookies, etc, one day is about the limit of its existence.

I shop at a Mexican American Supermarket across the street. As you enter the store the first thing you walk through are pastries, all kinds of homemade pastries. I've never been tempted, but recently I came out of the hospital and I thought I'd treat myself. I bought a little cake-like thing in a plastic container. I didn't expect it to be very good, but it is one of the best things I've ever eaten. But now I have to avoid it as I walk in the store because if I buy it one more time I'll have a habit. And I'm afraid to look at the list of ingredients.

@coluber2001,
I love Mexican sweetbreads. I don't know what to call them. No I don't buy them anymore either.
