    Help Cookies! Need help.

    Advertisements

    Ok. I want to send DB some cookies. I have read all the threads and websites and everyone does it different! So here is what I'm planning to do.

    Make chocolate chip cookies, using white sugar, butter flavored crisco, and M&Ms (because it's hot where they are going). Let the cookies cool and then put in the freezer. After they are frozen, take 2 cookies at a time and put wax paper between them and then seran wrap all around. Stack the cookies in a cookie tin with air-popped popcorn in between. Put slices of white bread on top. Seal the tin and put plenty of cushion around it inside the larger shipping box.

    Here is where I am confused. Should I place slices of white bread inside the tin or outside? Won't the bread turn moldy and gross? That's why I was thinking just put them in the shipping box but not in the cookie tin. What should I do?

    I use a vacuum sealing widget I bought at Walmart. You buy gallon sized bags to go with it and put the cookies inside and vacuum the air out of it. Everything gets there just fine.

    I think the bread just turns hard.
    (yes, I've practiced with keeping cookies how they would be sent to see how they would be when they got to him, I'm a dork )

    Heck, Ive sent him a few boxes of cookies. I just put them in a ziplock, got all the air out I could.... and sent them. They got there just fine! The only request was "MORE PEANUT BUTTER!"

    I just wrap everything in saran wrap, then foil, put them in a gallon bag and suck out as much air as I can..

    I've heard doing white bread is great, and yes, you put it in there. I've also heard a vacuum sealer is great. I plan on getting a vacuum sealer for care packages, and also for my own personal use
