If you are sending out cookie packages for the holidays, this article gives you ideas for presenting and picking out cookies for your holiday enjoyment. You want to make sure the cookies don’t break, retain their taste and give enough to last a day or two. This article offers five tips, all of them simple and easy to do.
Sugar Cookies and Chocolate Chip cookies
The first tip for grouping cookies for holidays is to have a tray of sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies. A minimum of two different kinds of sugar cookies and three different kinds of chocolate chip cookies. You can buy the cookies or make them yourself. Lay the cookie half on top of each other in a straight line- a line of sugar cookies and then a line of chocolate chip cookies. Place the cookies on a light blue plastic plate and wrap with aluminum foil, the foil will help the cookies stay either hard or soft, depending on how they were baked.
Oatmeal Raisin, Raisin and Oreos
The second tip for grouping cookies for the holidays is to have a tray of oatmeal raisin, raisin and Oreo cookies. Place in order stated previously. Using latex gloves, dip the Oreo cookies in warm milk before placing in the oven for five minutes at 350 degrees. Place in a square cake tin and top with white freezer paper and aluminum foil before giving or sending out. The aluminum foil will help keep the cookies and raisin soft.
Lorne Doone, Oatmeal Raisin and Fig Newtons
The third tip for grouping cookies for the holidays is to do a square aesthetic look when grouping away cookies. There start from the middle then work your way out. First, place the fig newtons in a square in a round tin pan then the Lorne Doone, then the oatmeal raisin, then start again until you complete the square. Brush with warm milk and bake for 2 minutes at 300 degrees. Let cool and then top with aluminum foil.
Animal Crackers, Graham Crackers and Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookies
The fourth tip for grouping cookies for the holidays is to place animal crackers, graham crackers and chocolate covered Oreo cookies on a red plastic plate cover with an open brown paper bag in a straight line as described previously. There should be about eight cookies in a line. Cover the cookies with plastic wrap-red holiday plastic wrap if your local grocery store has it.
Broken Cookies, Reindeer Shaped Cookies, and Ginger Snaps
The fifth tip for grouping cookies for the holidays are to place broken cookies, reindeer shaped cookies and ginger snaps. On a light brown square platter place reindeer shape cookies in a circle, then ginger snaps and then broken cookies of whatever variety and then repeat the process until complete.
