Drop cookie prices - Page 3

smab, go ahead and make the full batch, make the dough balls, throw the half you don't need into the freezer. Next order you get .... from freezer to oven and you don't even have to clean the kitchen! icon_biggrin.gif

Debi I'm still intrigued by your chocolate chip cookie recipe (that uses all 3 sugars, lol) - is it posted anywhere and if not would you consider posting it? The perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe still eludes me - I've tried dozens and still haven't found one that's just what I want...but in the meantime I have lots of happy guinea pigs!

nope. sorry. this one goes to my grave. spent 6 months trying, experimenting, altering recipes until I found one that worked well enough to put my name on. Even my daughters don't have this recipe .... whoever treats me the nicest when I'm in Shady Pines will get it in my will! icon_lol.gif

But if you're ever in Indy, I'll happily give you a dozen!

You should charge no less than $1.00 per cookie. I sell my chocolate chip cookies often and that is what I charge and no one blinks an eye at that price. I always make sure to package them professionally and attractively. Tell me where you can buy a GOOD gourmet chocolate chip cookie for under a dollar? Ms. Fields, they are about $2.00 each! With fine ingredients, chocolate chip cookies are pricey to make.

a 1.5 ounce cookie should be close to a #20 disher I believe

indydebi--
I am a REAL good caregiver...Ha!
Just let me know when you get to Shady Pines and I will come to care for you in exchange for your cookie recipe.
I may be on a walker but I'll still be dishing out goodies!

I know about the "secret recipes". I have a chili mix recipe that I NEVER give out. I will mix the spices for someone for $6.95--you make my Firehouse Chili with 6 lbs. of meat. I always have about 10-20 orders for my mix at Christmas for gift baskets. Even my best friend doesn't know and she knows just about everything from a 30 yr. friendship.

I'm no indydebi, and wouldn't begin to guess her secrets, but I use three sugars in my cookies and banana bread as well... I use both light and dark brown sugars as well as white sugar... It makes an incredible difference in taste and texture. I've experimented over time and come up with my own ratios so you would basically have to do the same, but try that combo someday when you have time to play with your favorite recipe!

They were in charge of the bread set out on the table, the flour for the grain offerings, the unleavened wafers, the baking and the mixing, and all measurements of quantity and size.

Could someone explain to me what a disher is? TIA from a poor English understanding CCer.

A disher is like an ice cream scoop, but it has a thumb lever that pushes out the stuff in the scoop part for you. They come in many sizes and are used by restaurants/caterers/etc. to ensure uniform sizes of portions. Here's a link:

Here's another version. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000TJ4IIW?smid=A2HLK9C2IWJJB7&tag=dealtime-kitchen-20&linkCode=asn

I use this one ... the hand squeeze handle is less 'crampy' on my hands (old lady - arthritis - you know.....!)

I thought about getting the hand trigger one, but I got what the store had. I'll try it out and see how long I go before my thumb gives out! LOL!

Thank you , too , Indydebi. I should know about arthritis, LOL, I'm reaching 80 very soon.

The bad part about preferring these kind of scoops is I can't find the size I use in a regular store.... I have to drive 45 minutes to a kitchen shop in an outlet mall to get them. icon_cry.gif
