After I wrote about Cheese Rolls Nicky of
Farm Girl Stitching wrote this comment:
They are fantastic to eat, SO not good for us though! Our school recently made over 2000 dozen for a fundraiser,they are very popular for stocking the freezer for an easy winter or lambing time lunch. Thanks for sharing your recipe
Intrigued I asked her more about the fundraiser and this is what she said:
We sold them for $6.50 a dozen, or 5 dozen for $30.
It was a mammoth job, each batch of mixture made up about 13 loaves, which I think was about 22 dozen per batch. I haven't heard how much the profit was in total, but I suspect it would be around $3 per dozen as lots of our ingredients were donated.
It's probably a real South Island thing, but lots of sports groups etc fundraise down here by making cheese rolls.
It was lots of fun, hard on the back standing spreading all day, but lots of chatting and laughs made the day speed by!
Hope all is well with you, and that you're staying warm.......Nicky
………………but now I’m thinking Cheese Rolls
for tea. Think I’ll go and get some out of the freezer.
