Cookies

I just baked from scratch several dozen cookies and individually wrapped them to send to my brother overseas.

I never want to see another cookie for the rest of my life.

Who am I kidding?

I'll be making more in a few weeks to send!

Re: Cookies

Yummy cookies! We got "boo-ed" tonight so I'm enjoying some I didn't even have to make. http://www.beenbooed.com/ However, in sticking with tradition I will be making some tomorrow to "boo" someone else. Our whole neighborhood does this every year.

That's so thoughtful, now I want to do the same for my brother in Korea. I'm always worried about them tasting stale by the time they arrive. I had a bad experience years ago when my mom sent me some cookies (in the states) and the taste truly suffered from the trip. I like your idea of individually wrapping them. I'm inspired!

I also just baked some to send my family but we've been eating them partly b/c I'm a bit worried about them lasting in the mail.

Anyone have any tips for making sure they stay fresh if they could be in the mail for potentially a week or more?

Put a slice of bread in the cookie container!

My husband has deployed 6X and my brother twice, I'm a pro at this. I've mailed cookies that take two or three weeks and they are fine.
