Christmas Cookie Baking

By the time Thanksgiving is over and the Christmas preparations are underway, many of us will have been rushing around for over a month. There seems to be an endless amount of shopping, decorating, travelling and planning to do on top of all the other day-to-day activities and chores that have to be taken care of. With this in mind it's a miracle that anyone gets any spare time to bake anything from scratch.

This is the point where your group can help out.

Offer a variety of baked holiday cookies to members of the community, giving people the option to buy them by the dozen. Pick a few uncomplicated varieties to appeal to a broader range of people (sugar or gingerbread cookies will do just fine). If you want to get fancier with your baking creations then that's great too — you might want to try selling premium-level cookies for a slightly higher fee. If you have the time, inclination and skill amongst your volunteers you might also want to offer larger goods such as cakes and pies.

Make sure you get your orders in a week or two in advance so that your group has enough time for the baking and other preparation that's involved. If you do get any emergency last-minute requests, you can charge a little bit more. Everyone wins: you get funds for your cause, and families in the neighborhood get homemade treats rather than store-bought ones.
