When a Cookie Mix Fundraiser Beats Cookie Dough

2 advantages cookie mix has over cookie dough

Cookie dough fundraisers have steadily become more convenient over time. Cookie Dough used to only be available in tubs. Tubs were fine if you wanted to individually scoop portions onto a cookie sheet, but you first had to wait for the dough to thaw. Then pre-portioned cookie dough came along and made the baking process much easier.

Even though cookie dough no longer needs to be separated and sorted at delivery, it still must be refrigerated soon afterwards. This can make it a bit challenging for sponsors, and especially for larger school-wide groups. In other words, advanced planning and preparation is required in order to make the delivery and distribution process work smoothly.

Cookie Mix offers Trouble-Free Fundraising Deliveries

It doesn’t matter if it’s a warm day and you can’t tend to your delivery right away. Your cookie mix boxes are sorted by seller and will be there when you’re ready.

One common question that we often get is, “Can’t cookie dough be left unrefrigerated at room temperature?” The answer is yes, and no. A distinction needs to be made between cookie dough made with raw and pasteurized eggs. As long as the cookie dough is made with raw eggs, it should be refrigerated as soon as possible.

If a company representative tells you that their cookie dough can be left unrefrigerated for a certain period of time, make sure you clarify the type of eggs used in their ingredients. Regardless, if you don’t know for sure, it’s always best to play it safe.

Healthier Cookies are an option with the Mix

A perceived drawback can be turned into an advantage. Since supporting a cookie mix fundraiser requires that you prepare your own cookies, you can alter the recipe a little. Consider making heart healthy cookies by swapping out some of the butter, margarine or shortening for healthier oils such as canola oil or olive oil.
