Could you get shaped cookie cutters?  Hearts perhaps or something related to the rest of your theme?  You could tie a cute ribbon to them with a card attached that has a little message, but I don’t know what – not thought that far ahead.  Or you could do something with those coloured silicone cupcake cases you can get, also don’t know what, perhaps fill them with candy and wrap them up with clear plastic?

Could you make cookies like these ahead of time? Cookies keep for a while. I would be seriously impressed if I went to a wedding where the bride made something like this.

Does it need to be favors?  Because I went to a wedding where the B&G created a large loaf of bread and a smaller loaf on top of it tied up with some ribbon as our centerpieces.  It was a huge hit!  (And didn’t take as much time as making pies would take.)  Granted, we were all afraid to eat it until we saw some others doing so, but it was delicious.

@Mrs. Meowerson: ohh no I did not know that! =/ 

As for storing cookies… You can store cookies in sealed tubberware with wax paper between them, my grandmother stores her sandtarts from November and we are still eating them in March- they stay fresh and tasty!

It would be a real challenge to have baking shipped across the country and remain beautifully intact for a wedding favor.

You could do homemade fortune cookies with personalized fortunes and individually wrapped and sealed in cello bags.You can ship these in boxes filled with popcorn or styrofoam peanuts.

If you bake the cookies sized perfectly for the container, they are easier to ship without damage. You will still have the logistics of baking, freezing ahead of time and shipping to arrive at exactly the right time.

You could bring in your love of baking in the container:

brioche cups

You could cheat using these cute miniature cookie jars. Fill them with cookies from a great bakery at your destination.

@julies1949: ah omg I love the fortune cookie idea!

Ohh I also thought maybe slices of rainbow bread in your wedding colors? I like the bread idea PP mentioned. I’m a big fan of bread!

a trick I always used (learned from my mom) with baking cookies that i want to be soft and fresh for a while.. store the cookies with a bunch of slices of bread. Keeps them really fresh and soft. Not sure if that’s common or not. but it doesn’t take from the taste and it’s great. 🙂

Since the logistics of baking something and keeping it beautiful/fresh/in tact while shipping across the country seems pretty tough, what about doing cute little glass jars filled with all the ingredients for your fav cookie/bread/other tasty treat. You could put a sweet note with instructions and something about passing on your love of baking! Good luck!
