Hello im new to all this and i have a few questions!
(1) i want to do cookie bouquets and im just a stay at home mom wanting to make a lil money. Does anyone do this and how much do u charge for different amount of cookies in your bouquets?

(2) Were do i find the heat resistant sticks to stick in the cookies? I did my fist one with kabobs sticks they worked just made the cookies really thick.

(3) Can i place some frosting in the middle of the cookie and still cook it? My cookies only take a total of 6 mins to cook fully. Or any other type of filling i could stick between if the cookie is really thick?

(4) How long will cookie dough last in the fridge? I see some of you freeze it but how do you know if its bad when u dethaw it?

THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE FOR YOU HELP!! I HOPE TO HEAR FROM U ASAP!!

Warm Wishes
MAria

Unfortunately, It is not legal to sell home baked goods in Arizona.

You can find the cookies/treat sticks at hobby stores that have cake decorating supplies, Michaels, Hobby Lobby and Walmart stores have them

1. I'm just a hobbyist so I can't help you with pricing.

2. You can find cookie sticks at Michael's and cake supply stores.

3. I wouldn't put icing and then bake. You can bake your cookies first and then sandwich them with icing. If you only bake for 6 minutes your cookies must be really thin. I roll mine 3/8" thick and bake for about 11 minutes.

A cookie in a bouquet should be at least 3/8" thick. It makes for a better size serving. I wouldn't put filling in a cookie for a bouquet. I also wouldn't fill a thick cookie -- it would make it difficult to eat. Sandwich cookies are usually thinner.

4. It depends on your recipe. The NFSC dough no longer than a week in the fridge and no longer than 3 months in the freezer.
