More than The kitchen, Maggie Batista highlights some of the mistakes people often make when shipping cookies and how to avoid them. Here are some of the main takeaways:

  • Wait for the cookies to cool completely before packing them. You don’t want to spoil their texture or encourage bacterial growth.

  • Wrap the cookies in an airtight container and make sure there is plenty of padding in your wrapper so that they don’t bounce and break.

  • Some types of cookies are better for shipping than others. Flaky and fragile cookies like macaroons, florentines, and cream-filled sandwich cookies will likely be damaged in transit no matter what. Go for stronger cookies like chocolate chips, sugar, and gingerbread.

If you’re going to take the time to bake delicious homemade cookies for someone, you might as well make sure your treatment package survives the trip. You can find more cookie shipping tips at the link below.
