pre-portion and hold lots of cookies (360 dozen) for mass bake.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I've gotten myself talked into holding a bake-sale(s) to help try and save out Reserve Commands' Holiday Party (Pretty sad when the members have to hold a bake sale to pay for the holiday party to honor our families, but that's the current financial and political climate...

So, I've costed out the materials for about 60-80 dozen _each_ of:  spritz, chocolate chip, peanut butter, snickerdoodles, etc. cookies, Our "Ward Room" (Officers)  are providing the seed money for me to get the ball rolling, I've already arranged for the 2 roll-in oven that can handle a full speed-rack each. So I can rock them all out the day before delivery/sale...

Big question is how to produce these in a timely manner, or what can be made up in advance and refrigerated/frozen before baking?

 

I'd really like to be able to prep a batch a day, hold them and then bake them all off on a friday and deliver them saturday morning.


Seriously considering letting my Command buy me a nice cookie-press/gun. So if anybody has any reccomendations.  Since I've arranged my workspace and oven time, and doing ALL the labor myself, the least they could do is give my fore-arms a break... The thought of hand-piping 70 dozen spritz cookies, not so fun.

All of those cookies should be fine made ahead and frozen. Place them on the sheetpans ahead and hold in fridge before baking.
