I enjoy decorating cakes and cookies. I have dabbled in this for years. I looked at some of the shops on ETSY and saw that people charge up to $85 for 6 decorated sugar cookies. That was on the high end for 6 decorated Christmas tree cookies. Most of the shops charge around $40 for 6 medium sized cookies or 12 small.

Do people honestly pay for this extravagance? When my son got married last year, I thought it was crazy to pay $4 each for the wedding cakes shaped cookie favors, so we made them. The caterer was very impressed and asked to take a couple home with her. 

I just cannot imagine. What is the most you have ever paid for decorated cookies?

Ha! Maybe $3 for a dozen at the grocery store. There is no cookie worth $85!
