Packing Tips

Place cookies in an airtight container. Separate layers of cookies with wax paper. Fill the container completely with cookies and/or tissue paper to keep cookies from moving at all. Mail padded (again to prevent movement) inside a shipping box. I olnly recommend mailing these cookies to and from cooler weather.
