First Batch Of 2013 Postal Cookies

IMG_4410

There’s something so wonderful about sabatoging your besties’ diet resolutions continuing the season of giving.  But all joking aside, the feeling you get when you plop a package in the mail is a great one and I fully intend on having that feeling a bunch this year!  And now that I have these completely adorable tags (thank you Em!), sending packages is even more exciting.

Working my way through In The Sweet Kitchen, the Ultimate Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies caught my attention.  This recipe appeared to be both mailable and modifiable, both of which I was looking for.  I ditched the chocolate chunks and went straight for a big ol’ bag of white chocolate chips and an even bigger bag of shelled pistachios.  And I thought perhaps if I showed a picture of all my hard shelling work, my postal cookie recipients would feel even more special.  (Emily, Elizabeth, Jessica, Krista – did it work?)

My roommate and I went to town on this dough.  If I had to pick one cookie dough to live off for the rest of my being, this would be it.  And, from what I was told, the actual cookies came out pretty delish as well.  Have I mentioned before that I’m a dough hound?

So back to the postal stuff…  Do you have any suggestions on mailable treats other than cookies??  I’m a bit bored with cookies and would love to hear about goods you’ve successfully sent to loved ones!

  1. What a sweet idea to send random cookie packages! Love it!

  2. Make some coconut macaroons. Maybe some similar to Hail Merry’s yum!!! When you do you can go ahead and mail them straight to Tampa, thanks!

  3. Oooo can’t wait! I’m happy to send more adorable paper products if it keeps the goods a’flowin’! xoxo

  4. I love this idea!! Quick breads are a great thing to send too. I recently got some small patterned paper bread pan liners (like about the size of 2 muffins worth) that I think would make great packaging for little gifts!
