What do you guys think of these cookies in a jar? It is walnut (fresh from the tree!) and choc chip? I don't know what to price them - what do you think? J thinks a price I think too high but don't want to under sell either! Bows will be bigger and cute cardboard tag as well. Am going to bake them later to test for taste!

I would say €3.50 - €4 if it makes about 12 cookies.

To be honest the ingredients / jar probably cost almost that, just the dry stuff works out at a euro, need to price the choc chips (expensive here) and walnuts and the jar is about 80c I think :-? :-?

@emmavmorgan I'm just cooking my test batch and it has made 24 large cookies. What do you think of pricing on the wreaths?

Have you got pics? I'm pleased as I was thinking similar maybe 10 for the basic ones and 15 for the ones with lights and in between for some of the others I'm still working on that are more fiddly but no lights.

@emmavmorgan - so what do you think of the cookies now we know quantity? Sorry you are now my guru as you know what you are doing (and I soooo don't :hohoho: :hohoho: :hohoho: ). :happysanta: :happysanta: :happysanta: :happysanta: I haven't had time to do all the sewing I want to so looks like it will mainly be wreaths and food stuff (which from talking to the girls who are involved in organising tend to sell well) :snowball:
