Keeping Cookies Crispy for shipping

Sixy beast | | Jan 11, 2005 01:17 PM

I have been doing some bakesales at work to raise money for Tsunami Relief. Someone called me and said he would give me 60 bucks to make some cookies to send to his step dad for his birthday on Friday.

I have to bake the cookies tonight and he'll post them tomorrow. Although we are in the US his dad is English (and so I am I) so he wanted to make some of the cookies be something we'd maybe make back home.

I am currently considering baking at least:
gingernut cookies
scottish butter shortbread

and/or maybes...
flap jacks
brandy snaps

I plan to present these in cellophane bags.

Wondering if anyone had aany special tips on ensuring these stay crispy throught shipping.

My own thoughts

-completely cool down cookies before packing
-pack as tightly as possible in presentation bag to be airtight.
-maybe doublewrap in a ziplock bag for shipping
-do not mix different cookie types in the same bag

Any other tips or thoughts much appreciated.
