The pizzelle are an excellent gift at Christmas or for any occasion. But when it’s time to pack them for gifts, it can be hard to make sure that the delicate cookies do not break when they’re delivered.
Anyone who has made an effort to transport the pizzelle or have bought it on the net understands how much it is inclined to break these sweets. And even if one or two crushed cookies can not be devastating, a container full of these totally destroys the appearance of the gift. So, how do you bring or send containers of these sweets to relatives and friends without presenting them with a box full of crumbs at the end,
If you’re not moving them far, and if you’re physically taking them, you can arrange them on a plate of cookies yourself or as part of a variety of cookies. When doing this, make sure the cookies lie flat on the plate or on the tray. They can be stacked if desired, but try to keep them flat. Gently cover with a sheet of cellophane film and make sure the tray is flat during transport.
A different way of giving them as a gift is to pack them in small boxes. This works best when you take them somewhere to share as a number of gifts, such as when you go to a party or other meetings. Boxes for cardboard boxes or boxes of candy and medium sized desserts work well for this. Of course, individual pizza makers produce cookies of different sizes, then determine the diameter of the cookie and calculate the size of the box before selecting any container to use to insert them. If you do not, you could end up with containers that are just a bit small for your cookies.
Biscuit tins work well when it is necessary to have them protected. This is excellent when you are shipping cookies or when it is likely that a plate or cardboard box will be crushed during delivery. Old cookie jars can be reused, or you can usually find them at discount stores. As with carton containers, make sure you know the size of cookies to make sure they fit the containers.
When packing the transport pizzelle, regardless of the type of container you use, be careful not to overload the snacks. This entails a greater risk of breakage. And if you’re sending cookies or bringing them in a container that’s a little too big, protect the fragile cookies by filling the empty areas with wrinkled paper towels.
