    If I were you I would just do chocolate chip and 2 in a bag.

    I really wanted to do the cookie buffet for my favors. But my mom talked me out of it because what if everyone picks all of one cookie and people get stuck with ones they dont like. And thre is the thing about will your venue even let you do that? Many have VERY strict rules on food coming in esp if you are making it.

    1. I love fortune cookies. I would definitely eat one (or two).

    2. I think if you do 2 cookies per person that’s plenty – you can definitely prepackage them.

    I will say this: the four options all sound yummy, but if you’ve got people helping you with the baking, I would give each person ONE kind of dough, and make sure there is extra, because ovens act differently, etc. and you’re bound to end up with some overcooked or undercooked. Give each person just one kind to bake, because different cookies also bake differently, so it’ll be easiest to keep it consistent with each baker. ๐Ÿ™‚

    So maybe narrow it down to 2 or 3 kinds, since you only have 2 bakers (3 if you count yourself). ?

    Personally, I prefer homemade cookies over store bought any day! I say go ahead with your plan. Making the dough ahead of time is a really smart idea and will save you oodles of time! If the dough allows, I would roll it into logs and wrap it up in Saran or wax paper and then just slice off pieces to save you even more time. I bet you’ll have it all done in an afternoon ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t think you need to supplement. The homemade cookies sound delicious and adequate. I would prepackage them though so that you don’t have to make too many. That way you know everyone will get some.

    i think 2 cookies per person is enough, i think they sell the fortune cookies really cheap at some wholesale places if you buy a lot

    I would pre-package two chocolate chip cookies per person and call it a day!  But I do love homemade cookies – yummy!

    We did two cookies in a package. We did them months ahead of time and froze them, and they still turned out great! I packaged them before we froze them too, so all we had to do was defrost them and they’re done.

    But I think the cookie buffet idea would be really cute and yummy!

    As a guest, if I got two homemade chocolate chip cookies in a bag, I’d be happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Definitely two per bag and call it a day!  We are having a cookie table as well and are planning on buying the cookies from a local bakery because I’m already assuming that I and my family will be overwhelmed, and i will definitely not be baking the night before the wedding!

    They all sound fabulous but I would be thrilled with homemade chocolate chip cookies.  I’d rather eat that than anything in the world ๐Ÿ™‚

    If you made it easier on yourself by packaging two cookies each, I don’t think your guests will be missing out on anything. They’d be grateful either way. I say there’s nothing wrong with it considering that you’re going to be so busy.
