First Posted: 12/02/2011 3:25 pm   Updated: 08/31/2012 10:48 am



Mailing cookies to your favorite people is a surefire way to make them feel loved during the holiday season. But there's a catch -- if you send the wrong kind of treats, your cookies might become stale by the time they arrive.

To help you avoid this dilemma, we compiled our 10 most shippable cookie recipes, from long-lasting gingerbread to sturdy biscotti. (No matter which cookies you choose to bake, be sure to send them the same day they emerge from your oven and to pack them in a well-cushioned, airtight container.)
