View Full Version : question about baking for preschool function
05-24-2010, 04:51 PM
My daughter is having her end of year party this Thursday and I volunteered to make cookies (there will be 2 of us providing cookies). There are 16 kids in the class--all kids can have family present, how much is questionable (for exs, my daughter will have 3 people present, but they implied some kids may have none and some may have even more). When I asked how many cookies to bring they were a little less than helpful, finally deciding on 32 or more. I am thinking I want to bring more than 32--I would rather take home extra than risk one single person not getting a cookie. Anyway, in light of all this information (probably more than you needed), if you were making my Salty Chocolate Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies (http://thespicedlife.blogspot.com/2010/01/salty-chocolate-chocolate-chip-oat.html) (posted on here a while back but I provided the link if you never saw them) would you make the cookies as directed (bigger but not huge, they bake 6 to a sheet) or make them a lot smaller? Take less big ones or a ton of small ones?

I would take more smaller ones. Makes it more likely there won't be a short fall, and I know that at work people are forever breaking large cookies in half. I'm one of them :o I like a bite of something sweet but not huge portions. Also, presumably there will be a lot of very small-sized humans at the event.

Another vote for more smaller cookies. Smaller cookies are easier to eat and handle in this type of situation than a large cookie.

I would just add to the chorus and make smaller cookies. People really don't want to eat one large cookie at a function like this.
If you were making them as "gift bags" for someone to take home, larger would be appropriate -- i.e. at weddings, one might receive bagels, muffins, cookies and/or a copy of the NY Times to take home.

OK I was thinking smaller and then looking at the cookie I got nervous and was not sure. Glad to hear my initial thought confirmed. Thanks.
