I have no problem passing up baked cookies, but when I bake it's hard to keep from tasting the dough. Last time I needed to bake a bunch of cookies, I decided to do a cookie dough glucose tolerance test. So I took my BS every hour. It went up to 205, then down to 149, then back up to 180 and took 3 hours to come down to 120. I guess that was the sugar, then the flour. So now I know. The worst part was the "longing" for more sugar all evening. I knew what caused it, so did not indulge, but it's easy to see how folks get in trouble. Next time someone needs a lot of cookies, I'm going to just give them my recipes and stay out of it. Life is quite fine without cookies.
