The titles of my posts are very witty and inventive aren’t they?
I just noticed how boring they are – but then again – I want you to find these if you are ever doing a Google search, so you’re more likely to click on “Paper Plate Cookie Tray” than “Presenting baked goods in an economical and decorative container” – not that that held much wit either.

I digress…

One of our 100 Things 2 Do This Summer was to bake together and another was to deliver treats to friends…. so we tackled both today.

We baked these delicious double chocolate cookies I found on AllRecipes.com.  When they’re warm and gooey they taste like a brownie-cookie combo.
I haven’t tried them cooled because they didn’t last that long.

Then we needed to package them up for delivery.
Easiest way – either my origami box – or, to hold more than a few – a paper plate.

Here’s how it’s done:

This one may be unclear – these folds are perpendicular to the ones you just did;

Bring all the sides up and adhere into place.

Then stuff with goodies!

You could line these with wax paper if you wanted, but the plates we used had a wax coating on – so nothing was going to stick to the sides or get gooey.

Chloe delivered them to her friends and only fell once – but she picked all the cookies up and put them back in the container.

Fortunately Sherri is a believer in the “5-second rule”. lol




  
Have a great one!
