Whether the holidays are coming up or you just want to send someone an extra-special care package, you can't go wrong with cookies. We'll show you how to pack them so they arrive in one piece (and we'll share some of our favorite recipes, too!).

Wrap Cookies

Wrap pairs of cookies, back-to-back, in plastic wrap. It might be a little time-consuming to divide your batch into sets of two, but trust us—it's worth the extra wrapping to make sure they arrive safely.

Wrap Box and Mail

Seal the top of the box with packing tape. Wrap the box in kraft paper and secure with tape. Using a black permanent marker, write both your return address and the address you're sending the cookies to on the top of the box. Write perishable across one side of the box. Now your package is ready to mail!
