How to Pack Cookies for a Bake Sale

Bars and cookies are perfect picks for bringing to a bake sale.

Bars and cookies are ideal for thoughtful, homemade gifts or standout best-sellers at a bake sale. Tying them with ribbon or placing them in decorative tins gives them an extra professional flourish.

  • When packing cookies for a sale or gifts, choose bars and cookies that will stack nicely and hold up well, avoiding overly gooey or frosted cookies that might stick together.
  • To be on the safe side, stack moister cookies with neat squares of wax or parchment paper in between each.
