Cookie bouquets can be challenging.
What container do I use?
How do I keep the cookies in the container?
Do I wrap each cookie?
Here's what I do.
I make cookies thicker than normal and bake.
As soon as they come out of the oven, I stick a wooden skewer in the cookie
and cross my fingers that they don't crack the cookie!
I decorate as usual and let dry.
I cover each one with a cello bag and tie a ribbon, twine, etc. on the bottom.
I always use a red clay pot that is painted (by me) to match the cookies as a container.
It's heavy, the right size, and doesn't cost too much.
Place in styro foam that is wedged in the container.
This is the final product!
Ready for a celebration!
