I just made 99.5 Dozen cookies! - Page 2

post #16 of 32
Thread Starter 
Sorry I didn't get back to you with the answers to your questions...I was a little busy!!

I can bake 10 dozen cookies in an hour. I just have a regular oven, people ask me how many ovens I have...just one!! I have the cookie sheets that are 12x18 and I can get 15 heart shaped cookies on each pan. I put two sheets in the oven at one time and while they are baking, I mix up another batch, get them on the cookies sheets and by the time I have them ready, the ones in the oven are done, and I start the process over again and again and again...

I have never wrapped them individually...that makes me tired thinking about that!!

I just use this recipe and don't ever chill the dough...no time for that!!

2 sticks margarine
2 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2.5 cups flour

Bake at 375 for 8 minutes.

I frost them all with buttercream. Same stuff I do on my cakes. They are GOOD!!

I think I will go take a little nap so I can finish them tomorrow. I posted a picture of about 70 dozen already decorated. I decorate them real simple, since I have to do 1,200 cookies, don't want to make it too hard on myself, if you catch my drift!!

You are very impressive getting that many cookies done and them all looking equally nice! I do about 100 at a time during holidays and just thought I was doing something big! ha! NOT!
Dumas is such a small town.............do you own a bakery there or work out of your home? We most usually go through Dumas on our way up to Colorado. icon_smile.gif

How do you keep them from getting smudged when you package them? I was using Alice's Cookie Icing ( posted on Wilton's forum) and it smudged after drying for 12 hours, but it's reeeeeally yummy!!

I just do this out of my home.

My frosting crusts up pretty quick so I don't have a problem with stacking them in the boxes. I use the buttercream frosting recipe in the Wilton Decorating Books. That is what I use on my cakes and cookies. I haven't ever tried any other frosting, everyone seems to LOVE this one!!

Holy Cookies Batman! all those AND a b-day cake, you rock! I wish I had only an ounce of your energy. I'm only 34 but get worn out during a project because of the distractions - kids, carpool, dinner, phone calls, laundry, dishes etc.

Maybe the Kooky Cookie Queen! That is just incredible. I bet bakeries with a staff don't do that much in your time span! You are amazing.

That is just AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just think, if you sold them $2 a piece so thats $24 a dozen and did 99 dozen once a month....that is like $2500. Thats some nice job security! Now if you could only find that many people to order each month!
