FAQs

How many cookies to bring to a party? ›

The general rule of thumb suggests calculating 2-3 cookies per person if other desserts are available. If cookies are the primary sweet treat, consider increasing the count to 4-6 per person.

What to have for a cookie party? ›

Serve a Few Savory Bites

Put out a few dips: Hot Crab Dip and Spinach and Artichoke Dip are warming winter options. Have a few trays of hand-held mini appetizers throughout the party; you'll likely be nibbling on cookies long into the night. Keep as much food as you can in your living room.

How long can cookies sit out at a party? ›

Unrefrigerated cookies stay fresh for two or three days.

How far in advance can I make cookies for a party? ›

Aim to make them about two weeks in advance if you keep them at room temperature. Making them one week or a few days in advance is even better if you are going for the freshest possible cookies. Remember that you can always make a new batch if you accidentally keep your cookies out for too long and they become stale.

How do you keep cookies fresh for a party? ›

In general, it's OK to store crisp cookies in a container with a looser-fitting cover. But to keep cookies soft and chewy, store them in a container that has a tight-fitting lid. Test Kitchen Tip: If your cookies get too soft, crisp them up in a 300ºF oven for five minutes.

Homemade Cookies & Icing

Recipes I use are sugar cookies, gingerbread cookies, and/or chocolate sugar cookies. 6-8 cookies for each person to decorate is usually plenty and have extras in case any break, drop, etc. Doubling any of the recipes could work, but the doughs get heavy and it's a load on your mixer.
