Want to send cookies as gift items to friends at a distance? Need kosher cookies delivered to a friend or family member observing a holiday? It’s simple and easy to do when you observe a few guidelines. They will insure your yummy baked goods won’t arrive looking like a rubble of fragrant crumbs when the box reaches its destination.

 

Packing Cookies for Delivery

If you pack with care, your cookies will arrive in unharmed, fresh and delicious.

Knowing what to ship is as important as knowing how to ship it. The heartier items to ship include pound cakes, cookies, fruitcakes, brownies, rum balls, the moister types of quick breads, Italian biscotti, shortbread type cookies, sugar cookies and chewy cookies like peanut butter cookies. There’s an old baker’s trick that says you should include a slice of apple to help all types of cookies stay fresh. Others suggest including a slice of bread.

 

You should steer clear of moist fillings or frosting. It’s a good idea to package batches of cookies together to help preserve their own attributes. Small items should be packed tightly to prevent shifting and damage. Remember that the gifts you are sending are perishable. An airtight container is always a wise idea. Simple store-brand zip-top packaging or containers will do. There are festive ones at Christmastime for gift-giving. There are Jewish holiday themed ones available for the appropriate holiday. For instance, these containers are perfect for when you need kosher cookies delivered.

 

Tall, round potato chip cans can be useful to ship rolled-type cookies. Parchment paper is a good gap-filler inside airtight packages. A cookie gift basket may be placed in bubble wrap and slipped inside a sturdy box which is then inserted into the outer shipping container.

 

Once your baked gifts are inside the shipping container, fill the open spaces around your items with packing materials to prevent them from shifting around. These packing materials can include bubble wrap, packing peanuts and plain air-popped popcorn. You can never have too much packing material.

 

Whether you want to send cookies as gift treats to a friend out of town or ship baked goods to a loved one far from home, by using these methods you can be sure they won’t find out which way the cookies crumble.

 

At Smileycookie.com, you can send cookies to anyone in the US or to military personnel overseas and guarantee that they will arrive 100% fresh and intact. We have gifts for any occasion (get well soon cookies, congratulations cookies baskets, etc.) and cookies for any holiday. Also, you can create your own custom cookie in the shape and color that best matches your school, team, organization or personal style. All of our cookies are certified kosher, peanut and tree-nut free and guaranteed to to shop up at their destination fresh and delicious without you having to worry about baking or packing.

Shipping care packages to a soldier through an APO address can be a little tricky if you’re sending something perishable. While sending letteres to soldiers is a wonderful way to show your appreciation and love, a package with cookies baked at home is that extra touch that makes all the difference. Because it can take up to three weeks for delivery, you’ll need to plan ahead. When receiving care packages soldiers love to find a homemade, tasty treat; not a mess of melted chocolate and crumbled cookies. Fortunately, it is possible to send cookies and other baked goods and ensure they’ll get there fresh and delicious.

 

Soldiers love to get care packages from back home.

The first step to shipping cookies overseas is selecting a type of cookie that will survive the trip and still taste fresh. Bar cookies are a good choice because they don’t get stale quickly and can stand up to being jumbled. There are dozens of great bar cookie recipes that you can use, as well as brownies. If you want to use one of your regular cookie recipes, simply turn them into bar cookies by spreading the batter in a 9 x 9 pan and baking until done.

 

You can also choose to buy store bought cookies, which have a long shelf life and tend to survive the trip well if they’ve been cushioned. Still, it’s always good to include a homemade touch in care packages soldiers receive overseas. Drop cookies are another excellent selection because they are dense and thick, making them ideal for a long trip overseas. Other cookies that do well are shortbread, peanut butter cookies biscotti, molasses cookies and sugar cookies. Another bit of advice when shipping cookies in a military care package: don’t mix hard and soft cookies in the batch, as hard cookies will absorb moisture from soft cookies and turn them gooey or too soft.

 

After you’ve selected a good mix of cookies to bake, plan on packing them properly. It’s a good idea to wrap each cookie individually, or two back-to-back. This cushions the cookies perfectly, keeps them from sticking to each other and lets you send a wide variety of cookies without the flavors mixing together. Because it can take weeks to ship APO packages, use cling wrap or the press-and-seal variety which makes the cookies air-tight and prevents spoilage. To ship your package to an APO address you’ll also need a sturdy container. Select a small box, tin or hat box is ideal for packing your cookies safely. Carefully arrange the individually wrapped cookies in the box but don’t crowd them. Use newspaper, crumbled wax paper or butter-free popcorn to fill up the empty space and cushion the baked goods.

 

When you ship APO packages in the mail you know they’ll be knocked around quite a bit on the trip. That’s why proper packing is the key to ensuring your military care package is received in good condition with a fresh gift inside. In addition to baked goods, sending letters to soldiers is a great way to show your love. Always include a handwritten note with your care package to add a special touch.
