Baking cookies

Monday, October 19, 2009

My girls (and I) have their own cookie baking business that they do around the holidays. They just bake five different kinds of speciality cookies that everyone seems to love. They did very well last year selling over $1200.00. This year looks to be even bigger for them. Tonight was Lady Lock night (or mini creme' horns). So for two hours we rolled, filled and packaged them. It's a great deal of fun watching them run this "little" business. They have learned so much from it. (Especially from dad, since he's an accountant.) What cookie's next? Hmmm...I think they said Peanut Butter Balls (or Buckeyes if you're from around the Ohio Valley area).

AND thank God, I haven't touched a single cookie, and by His grace I won't!

    I am very interested in how they market them. Do they take orders ahead of time, set up a table somewhere or put up signs? Do you package them in gift boxes or cans? I think it's wonderful! What a learning experience for them!

    What a fantastic homeschool experience this provides for them many different classes rolled into one fun and profitable event! I shared this idea with my daughter and she is definitely interested.

    And hooray for you for not falling into temptation. As one Sparker put it on her website: nothing tastes as good as slim feels. emoticon

    Thanks for sharing this with us!

    Wow! How did you manage to not touch a cookie? That's awesome, with the creme horns, I think they would have won the battle with me. Have a wonderful Tuesday.
