What I usually do when inputting food that I prepare, I actually insert the recipe and the quantity I made. Then you should know the calorie intake that you have eaten because we do put portions. From what I can figure, the calories eaten would probably have been for 3 cookies or so. Therefore, calculate .66 or a portion.

I just Googled:

Papa Murphy's chocolate chip cookies nutritional information

and the first hit took me to this webpage:

http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/food
s-from-papa-murphys/8745/2

That page says that one serving is 57 grams or 2 cookies. If you have a food scale and can weigh your cookies, you can get a very accurate calorie count.

Ok, I just made some chocolate chip cookies for my parents. The cookie dough was from Papa Murphy's. Anyway, I went to put it on my tracker as I ate 2 cookies. I did make them a little bit smaller than a tablespoon. My questions is- from what other sparkpeople said about a serving size,is 245 calories for a serving. WOW, but what is a serving? On the container there is no information on what a serving size is or the calorie intake, just the name of the ingredients.
The cookies are ok, I prefer home baked.
