Packing Your Christmas Cookies Up for Gifts?
You’ll want to keep these tips available to make sure that your recipient loves every morsel:
- Cut pieces of parchment paper to place between layers of cookies so they don’t stick to each other.
- If you’re going to use easy sugar cookie icing, make sure it dries out overnight so your cookie glaze is fully hardened.
- Add the perfect printable gift tag for a personalized touch.
- Holiday tins and boxes are an easy (and cute!) way to pack up your goodies.
- Include smaller containers like clear boxes or cellophane goodie bags to separate cookies that are more likely to break or are stronger in flavor (hello peppermint!)
- Cushion shipped packages with bubble wrap, shredded paper filler, and tissue paper.
This list is just for Christmas cookie recipes, but there are so many other Christmas treats out there to enjoy, like:
