Transport thumbprint cookies without squishing them – Eat the mistakes
Thumbprint cookies (you know, the little peanut butter cookies that have a thumbprint sized area in the middle, squished down with a Hershey kiss?) are awesome.
But they suck for trying to do anything with them other than eat them. Now normally this wouldn’t be an issue and they’d never make it past the baking sheet, but occasionally I do share my food.
No really. I swear I have pictures of it somewhere. Maybe.
But anyway, even just for making several dozen of these and storing them on your counter to indulge throughout the week, this makes those pointy chocolatey goodies on top much easier to manage. Just put them in a shoebox lid (or flat cardboard box like you’d get flats of canned goods in).
The tips will stay untouched and make it possible to wrap them without waiting for the chocolate to completely reharden (because really, it never does unless you refrigerate them).
Better yet, if you go the shoe box lid route, a gallon-size Ziploc bag will likely fit over it perfectly, which means no fighting with the cling wrap either!
So long as the bag fits tightly or the saran wrap is tight, you can stack a few of these for carrying purposes. I wouldn’t recommend having them stacked for too long, though, simply because the weight may eventually cause the plastic to sag and then you’ll have to eat the entire bottom row of squished mistakes.
