Top 6 Best Cookie Recipes for Mailing

By

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 cookie recipes with a firm texture. Avoid soft or crumbly cookies and be sure to pack them properly for shipping. Here are six cookie recipes perfect for mailing to make any occasion special.

Little peanut butter cookie cups hold a hidden center of chocolate and caramel. The secret is to stuff chocolate-covered caramel candies into the center of a ball of peanut butter cookie dough, then bake in a mini-muffin tin rather than a cookie sheet. Drizzle peanut butter-flavored chocolate on top for an irresistiable treat. Let the kids help with these.
