Good morning,
I'm sure this question has been asked over and over, but here it goes again

How much do I need to charge for cookies? not iced cookies but plain old chocolate chip or sugar cookes. Do I go by the Dozen or per cookie?

I brought cookies in to work just to give away, not add to my menu, but the people want to buy them. So they demand... I got to supply! Just don't know how much to charge for them.
I'm dodging a lady today because I don't know what to charge her.

Thanks in advance...

I'm in the same boat..people want me to make their Christmas cookies. I sat down and figured up the ingredients and multiplied that by three but the price only came up to $10 per batch (approx. 4 dozen). Granted, I didn't include a cost for the time, labor and so on...I was just trying to get a rough idea on prices. So I was thinking around $15-18 per batch of cookies. Curious what everyone else's opinion is on this!
