I made some of the severed finger cookies - in my pics - for fun for my DD's teachers and now I've been asked how much for 30 of them. I've not sold any cookies (just cakes) and although I've read the guideline of charging for cookies by the inch, I have no idea what to charge for these fingers.

Can anyone help?

well, depends on how big they are??? If they're the size of a normal finger I probably wouldn't charge more than .50 a piece but I'm in a market here that wouldn't support much more than that......Imean it's probably like a two or three bite cookie right?? I think yours are the best I've seen by the way.....I really like when they have the painted nails...but I've never seen the finger part look so lifelike as yours do! Did you find that the dough spread?/ Like did you have to make them skinnier than you actually wanted them to turn out???

Thanks. I was thinking of charging â¬5 per 'hand' (5 fingers!), but I really have no idea if people would pay that, much less though and its just not worth my time.

I'd still like to hear what others have / would charge for these.

Khalstead, I'd had a couple of the fingers in the fridge for an hour and they did not spread, but the others were only slightly chilled and they got quite fat. I pressed them to thin them back out when they'd just come out of the oven and as they were still so soft they went right back to their pre-baked size.

I'm selling 2 doz for $12, because I think they're kind of easy and I just kind of wanted to attract new customers. I have them listed as a Fall special. Ordinarily, if they weren't a "special" I'd charge more.
