Best Cookies For Mailing

Homemade cookies are such a pleasure to receive as a gift for any occasion. If you're taking the time to bake your love into a cookie to be mailed, be sure to use forethought on the type of cookie to bake. Many cookies are just too fragile and will not hold up to rough handling. Choose with a firm texture. Avoid soft or crumbly cookies and be sure to pack them properly for shipping. These cookie recipes perfect for mailing to make any occasion special.
