I am looking for a large batch cookie recipe that will feed hungry volleyball fans at a picnic. There are about 16 players at least 10 coaches and staff and about 200 fans.

How many cookies do I need? What do you suggest would be the best cookie/cookies to serve.

The food will be served indoors, but it might be warm.

You can go with 2 large (4 inch) cookies per person, which is about 6 ounces per person, if you are serving (for example), handing out packets.

I recommend you have 2, one chocolate and nut free and one chocolate and nut added, might also have oatmeal. For good baking recipes, I suggest baking 911.com. You can bake ahead and freeze most cookies.

I was a member of this site, but was not impressed with the recipes I tried. I cancelled my subscription. She is very self promoting, but the recipes come from a lot of sources that I can look up myself. I have found several cookie recipes (cookbooks) that I am going to test before the party. THX

Use applesauce for part of the butter. HTH

This does make some changes in the texture, but the fat savings can be substantial. Another alternative is prune puree or prune baby food, especially good for chocolate recipes and brownies.
You use up to 1/2 substitution on a cup for cup basis.
For the less of butter flavor, the butter flavorings/extract are satisfactory for some recipes, but you have to experiment.

How much food is requiere for a dessert table?
I am hosting a dessert party and I need to know how many pastries to make per person? I want small bites only desserts. Thank you for your help.

Go to the dessert planning page, this is discussed at length. The button is on the main cook talk page.

How far in advance can I make molded chocolate, pralines and trufflles?
I am concerned about the ganache fillings infused with fruit flavors. Thank you.
p.s. I found your site very helpful!

It is the cream that limits the ganache, which is the most fragile. Two days in a cool kitchen, a week in the fridge, 2 months in the freezer. Pralines last almost forever.
