Pizzelle - How To Pack Pizzelle As Gifts

By Ann Bato

Pizzelle are a great gift at Christmas or for any special occasion. But when it is time to package them up for gift giving, it can be hard to ensure that the fragile cookies do not crack when transported.

Anyone who has made an effort to send pizzelle or have bought them on the web understand just how vulnerable to crumbling these treats tend to be. And even though one or two damaged cookies may not be dreadful, a container full of them totally destroys the appearance of the gift. So, how do you transport or ship boxes of these treats to family and friends without presenting them with a box full of crumbs in the end?

If you won't be moving them far, and if you are taking them by hand, you can organize them on a cookie tray on their own or as a part of a cookie assortment. When doing this, ensure that the cookies lie flat on the plate or platter. They can be stacked if you wish, but try to keep them flat. Cover carefully with a bit of cellophane wrap and be sure that the plate sits flat during transport.

One other way to give them away as a present is to package them in smaller containers. This works well when carrying them somewhere to share as a number of gifts, such as when going to a party or other gathering. Cardboard mug boxes or medium sized candy and treat boxes are very effective for this.

Having said that, different pizzelle makers make totally different sized cookies, so measure the diameter of the cookie and measure the measurements of the box before shopping for any container to use to place them in. If you do not do this, then you could potentially end up with containers that are just a bit small for your cookies.

Cookie tins work well for when you must have them well protected. This is excellent for when you are sending cookies or where a platter or cardboard box could possibly be crushed while being transported. Previous cookie tins can be used again, or you can quite often find them offered at discount stores. As with the cardboard boxes, be sure that you know the dimensions of the cookies to ensure they will fit into the containers.

When packaging pizzelle for sending, no matter which sort of container that you choose, be careful to not overcrowd the treats. Doing so presents a larger risk of breakage. And if you are mailing the cookies or taking them in a container that is a bit too big, protect the fragile cookies by stuffing the empty spaces with clean crumpled paper towels.
