Bringing baked goods to work

I've been getting into baking lately and since I live by myself and don't have family nearby, I've been bringing my baked goods to work and sharing them with my coworkers. I'm not a fatass who can commit to finishing two trays of cookies on my own, and it makes me feel warm inside when people enjoy my creations. Sharing gives me another reason to bake and get better at it.
I am slightly autistic though and I can't tell if this is a normal thing to do or not. My coworkers enjoy my baking from what I can tell, but would you think that someone is weird if they brought something they baked to work every week?
I'm a trans woman btw if that matters.

    Just freeze the cookies you want to eat later. I can tell you are a grifter. There is no such thing as "slightly autistic". Clearly you never bothered to see a proper doctor. Get a real real diagnosis like anxiety disorder and Paranoia.

      "Autistic" has been coopted by all kinds of people who don't perfectly fit in, especially on the internet in recent times. You should understand what I am talking about when I say "autism" on Culinaly of all places. Maybe you are full blown autistic and can't fully grasp the context behind my use of the term and so you get angry? Regardless, what I mean is that I don't feel confident in my understanding of what people deem "normal". I hope that clears up any confusion.
      Back more on topic, as for freezing cookies, that sounds ridiculous. Cookies are best enjoyed within a day of baking. I'd rather bake a batch whenever I feel like a cookie, enjoy one or two fresh cookies out of each batch and share the rest, rather than freeze them and thaw/reheat one whenever I want one.
      Does your suggestion mean you think what I'm doing is weird though?

        you can freeze the raw cookie dough to use at a later date rather than making some huge batch all at once.

    It does, no one will eat the troony brownies, they'll pretend to but they'll be afraid that you put estrogen in them

      I would never do such a thing though. And I sit in an area with all of them and can see them consume the brownies, some of them even walk back up to my desk and ask me for seconds. They would have to have excellent sleight of hand to pretend to eat a brownie. Hats off if that's what they're really doing.

        There's literally no reason to believe you, unfortunately.

          Sure, believe whatever you want to believe. I can't prove anything over the internet.

          Just wanted to give you a good cookie recipe
          6 slices Bacon
          1-½ stick Butter, Cut Into Small Cubes
          ½ cups Sugar
          2 Egg Whites
          2 cups Pastry Flour
          ½ teaspoons Dried Thyme
          ½ cups Pistachios, Roughly Chopped
          Preparation
          Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. When done, remove it from the skillet and drain it on a paper towel lined plate. Then roughly chop it and set aside.

          Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg whites until combined. Add in the pastry flour, dried thyme, bacon, and chopped pistachios. Work the mixture until it comes together. Then wrap the dough in cling film so that the dough is completely covered. Lightly roll it until you get a log, about 5 cm in diameter. Chill the dough for at least 2 hours or overnight until thoroughly firm.

          Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray two cookie sheets with cooking spray. Set aside.

          Remove dough from the fridge, and slice the log into cookies, about 5 mm thick. Place the cookies on the prepared trays and bake 15 minutes. When done, remove from the oven and cool the cookies on wire racks.

          That actually sounds really interesting even though a bit odd to me. I'm not a big fan of savory and sweet but I just might give this a shot. Thanks anon!

          Agreed, people who attach strong gender connotations to basic and human actions tend to be midwits. Same thing with, for example, viewing fixing things as masculine and caring for your children to be feminine.

          I wouldn't even go far enough to wonder about anything being spiked. I just wouldn't trust anything made by someone that mentally ill to begin with.

          I'm not forcing it down anyone's throat. Here's your (You)

        You felt compelled to anounce ou were trans even though it was entirely unnecessary and irrelevant so...I don't believe you.

          It's relevant to how people would perceive me though. Especially if they knew that I was trans (some of them do)

            All of them do. They're just too polite or scared to tell you.

              I really don't think _all_ of them do, anon. One of my coworkers asked me out a few months after I started. On the second date I told him that I was trans, he was taken aback and told me that he couldn't be with me if that was the case. It was a shame because he was really cute and we hit it off so well. Bittersweet in a way because although he didn't want me in the end, it also meant that he couldn't tell even though he was looking at me through the lens of desire.

              This is the weirdest 'pretending to be gay/trans to expose LGBT folks to ridicule because it's Pride and I am angry' larp I've seen all day. Congratulations?

              It really isn't any of that, it's a genuine question that I've been considering.

    I think it’s pretty nice to do, I used to do this too and the only bad part is I got a reputation in the office as a good cook and I started getting requests.

      Thanks for taking my question seriously! That's really cool, glad to know I'm not alone and not a weirdo. What made you stop (since you said "used to")? Also what was your most requested recipe?

    I bring in stuff sometimes and people always seem to be happy about it. Just put a label on it that says if it has nuts, dairy, etc. that people might be allergic to.

      I don't put any label on it, because if you are that sensitive then the human race is not for you.

    I do the exact same thing bro. im trying to stay busy and use my time productively but I can't eat 40 cookies or whatever it is in one week. My co workers love it, at this point they are constantly sharing food with me now too. Just keep being you and be positive and good things will happen

    It's not weird. I used to make extras whenever I baked to bring to the office, and everyone loved it. But expect certain people to get pushy.
    One of the HR hens got pissy that I didn't make enough vegan-friendly stuff and tried to suggest I make versions specifically for her, so I stopped. Fat b***h ate everything anyway.

    I do the same, usually cookies, and they've gotten great reception in the past
    I moreso do it because I'm constantly adjusting ingredient ratios in my cookie recipes to find the best mix and don't always want to eat 20 cookies by myself (although I could, easily)

    It's not weird if they are enjoying it. You can make half batches of cookies and you can freeze cookie dough, though. Just portion them like you would if you were going to put them in the oven but put them in the freezer instead. Once frozen, put them into a ziplock bag and put them back into the freezer or into the refrigerator if you want fresh baked cookies the next day.

      okay that's like the tenth time someone has mentioned freezing the cookie dough. it's pointless IMO because making the dough is so easy. the annoying part is portioning out the dough and baking them

    jut because you cooked it that day doesn't mean you have to eat it that day. also smaller batches if it really bothers you
