a batch of cookies is a cookie sheet full

Neil Conway/CC-BY-2.0. Most cookie recipes make three to five dozen cookies or 36-60 cookies per batch on a 15-by-10-inch cookie sheet. In baking, a batch means an amount produced at one time. The amount of cookies that are in one batch varies by recipe.

Because a “batch” is the amount a recipe makes at one time. The average number of cookies in a batch can range from 24-36 (based on some light research I did into the cookbooks I happen to have on my shelves), but that’s just an average, so some recipes will make more than 36 and others will make fewer than 24.

A batch matters on the recipe. If the cookie recipe you made has 12 cookies in it, then your batch would be one dozen. If it made 14 cookies then your batch would be 14 cookies. Like I said, it all depends on your recipe.

10 cups of flour make 5 batches of cookies. How many cups of flour in one batch? Here are a diagram and a division equation that represent this situation: $$10\div5 = ?$$ For each question, draw a diagram and write a division equation. 6 cups of flour make 4 batches of cupcakes. How many cups of flour in one batch?

I then multiply $.30 per minute by 160 minutes to arrive at a total direct labor cost per batch of $48. To compute cost on a per cookie basis, I simply divide $48 by the recipe yield (30 cookies) which gives me $1.60 per unit (cookie) for labor. My direct costs, excluding packaging, are now: raw ingredients + direct labor = $ per unit (cookie)

In short, you should plan to charge between $2 and $6.50 per cookie, or between $8 and $15 per dozen if you choose to sell your cookies in bulk. When setting your pricing, you should consider the cost of both the ingredients and baking equipment, as well as your time, and complexity of the cookie.

Well, maybe you plan to factor in your time at $20 per hour. If you can make 4 batches or 96 cookies in an hour, that's $5 per batch or roughly 21 cents per cookie. In our scenario, this means that each cookie now costs 51 cents to make.

With that assumption, a batch of homemade cookies that’s equal to the store-bought version costs $1.94. So you’re saving $1.06 for 20 minutes of work, which gives you an “hourly wage” of $3.18. “Wow,” you’re thinking, “that’s pretty terrible!

You should also factor your time into the cost of making the cookies, let’s assume and state the cost of your time at $20 per hour. Hence, if you can make 4 batches or 96 cookies in an hour, that’s $5 per batch or roughly 21 cents per cookie. Using the above cost analysis, it simply means that each cookie now costs 51 cents to make.
