In respect to this, how many cookies should you put on a cookie tray?

Most cookie recipes focus on 1 dozen cookies, give or take a few. If there's one thing I noticed in my years of baking, it's cookie recipes make a few dozen.

Furthermore, how much is a cookie tray? For a small tray (10-15 people/45 cookies) I charge $25, medium (25-30/90 cookies) $50, and for a large tray (50-60 people/180 cookies) $100.

Also, how do you garnish a cookie platter?

Add garnishes such as sprigs of herbs, fruits or candies in between cookies. Pour melted chocolates in a variety of colors into decorative molds and place the candies along the edges of the tray. Add edible sugar flowers for decoration, or make fondant flowers in custom colors.

How do you present cookies?

Wrap like candy.

How do I garnish a platter?

Use one food as a garnish to create an orderly platter that doesn't distract from the meats. This practice works especially well when you serve a large number of people with many platters. Use curly parsley, lettuce leaves, kale leaves, shredded kale or watercress underneath the meats.

How do you price desserts?

Add each ingredient's per-batch cost to calculate the total cost of ingredients for a recipe. Divide this total by the number of servings the recipe provides. If the example recipe totaled $3.60 in ingredients and made 12 servings, divide $3.60 by 12 to calculate a per-serving cost of 30 cents.

How much should I charge for a dozen homemade cookies?

As a relatively easy example, imagine that you're calculating the cost of a recipe that makes 24 cookies. If a dozen eggs cost $3 and the recipe calls for 2 eggs, the cost of the eggs per batch of cookies is 50 cents or slightly more than 2 cents per cookie or 24 cents per dozen cookies.
