If you're planning on giving away cookies this year, there are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to packaging:
- First, make sure the cookies are completely cooled before packing them up. Otherwise, they could stick together or get smushed.
- It's also a good idea to separate different kinds of cookies so that they don't get mixed up.
- Christmas cookies come in all shapes and sizes, so be sure to use packaging that will accommodate your particular treats.
- Christmas cookies can be delicate, so it's important to choose a box or container that will protect them from breaking. You'll also want to make sure the container is airtight, to prevent the cookies from drying out.
- If you're packaging a large number of cookies, consider using multiple smaller boxes or bags instead of one large one.
- And finally, don't forget to include a festive label or decoration! A little effort goes a long way when it comes to Christmas cookie gifts.
