Packaging the Perfect Cookie (with flat bags and flap bags)Wednesday, June 1, 2016
A small cookie scoop fits about 2 teaspoons of dough, a medium scoop fits about 1 ½ tablespoons of dough, while a large scoops fits about 3 tablespoons of dough.
Please remember that these sizes and measurements change slightly with each recipe and the ingredients used. Some cookies spread out and stay thin, while others get puffy and thick. The measurements listed here are based on a standard chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Now the fun part, where ClearBags comes in… packaging! (Yes, we are huge packaging nerds). You just baked these amazing cookies, now you want to give them to friends or family, or sell them at your shop. We really like the flat bag option, though we have tons of food safe packaging options for cookies and other baked goods.
Crystal Clear Flap Seal Bag
To keep that freshness locked in, you can heat seal these flat heat seal bags with an impulse sealer.
Do you have really gooey cookies that can bend and break? Try a paper board insert or grease resistant cookie card. These inserts are a great way to provide a little extra support to your cookie to help keep it from breaking while on display. You can just slide your cookie onto the insert and then into the outer bag for a completed packaging look.
Grease resistant paper board inserts, or cookie cards as they are known, can be custom ordered on our ClearBags website. You can also cut down a standard cake board to use as backing, but that is only an option to those that do small quantities.
