You all seem like cookie pros...I need some advice. I normally stick to cakes/cupcakes but I have been presented the opportunity to make 3000 cookies for an earth day event. It is just me ( even though my husband says he will help). Is this even possible?

Have just visited the blog too and it is a great resource - there is a lot of time and experience on display.

If you are baking out of your home....3000 cookies will take you about 20-25 hours just to bake, if you bake 24 at a time....this does not include decoration, preparing the dough, packaging...although some of this could get done while cookies are baking- if you take on this endevor-you better plan on spending an entire 7 day week on the effort....I would have taken on this order, no problem, when I worked in a commercial bakery, but never out of my home kitchen, the gargantuan mess, damage/wear and tear to residential appliances and space constraints, there's just no way...plus I love making cookies, but I know if I had to make three thousand in one foul swoop- I'd probably never want to make another again!

What kind of cookies? Do they need to be wrapped/packaged?

If they are regular dessert cookies, that will be served on platters etc, then go for it!

If it's decorated sugar cookies, I would say no, unless you have a couple of extra ovens and some kitchen helpers! Personally I find decorated sugar cookies very time intensive, so if you can do a practice batch, see how long it takes for you to bake them and decorate them then multiply that by however many batches you would need to do to get 3000...then you have a better idea of how workable the idea is.

Hope that helps!
