You can also order cookies and most other items through Instacart and other food delivery apps, which will be delivered to your door within a few hours of ordering.
Is It Cheaper to Make Cookies Yourself?
The cheapest way to get cookies from Costco is to buy the frozen packs of Kirkland brand cookies, which are $22.99 for 120 cookies, which is around $0.19 per cookie.
The cookies come preformed and ready to slide into the oven, so you’re able to unpack individual sheets of cookies as needed without thawing or baking all cookies at once.
If you were to buy 120 baked cookies, you would likely end up with a lot of waste or stale cookies, which is the major benefit of freezing and baking cookies as needed.
The average cost to make homemade cookies ranges from $0.21 to $0.51 per cookie, assuming you buy ingredients in bulk and can bake a huge batch of cookies at once.
The cost of a Costco cookie is $0.19 per cookie, which is below the lowest estimated cost for making your own cookies, so it makes sense to get the frozen Costco cookies to save money and time.
