Hello Chowhounds, can you please help me? I want to send cookies to my active-duty Army son. Last year, for the holidays, I baked several of his favorites, packaged them carefully, and paid for two-day delivery to Alaska. Unfortunately they still took over two weeks to get to him! Out of all the cookies I baked, only the Snickerdoodles arrived fresh and tasty. He was so happy to get something home made for the holidays, he and his friends even ate the stale ones. I want to try again this year and try for better results. Do you have any cookie recipes you can share that maybe stay fresh longer than most? I'd like to send more than just Snickerdoodles. I would surely appreciate any advice or info you might have!
