Shipping in Summer Heat

I don't ship professionally, but for family and friends occasionally. And I have never worried about the temperature, cookies are not that much affected by heat. Or are they? Now I start to wonder if I should have worried about the temperature *lol*

Whatever, I just shipped cookies to my sister, on the few really hot days we had here so far in summer, about 90 too, and there were absolutely no problems because of that. The problem were two broken cookies, but I doubt that they were caused by the climate.

Maybe I was just lucky so far, but I absolutely believe that 90° are no big deal for cookies. They've spent some time in the oven, after all

I keep wondering if I could duplicate the process and put a package of cookies in my mailbox for the day.  I individually bag my cookies and heat seal the bag.  Would being in an airtight situation cause a problem.

I think it could be a problem. If any moisture is in the cookie (or it's also really humid), the cookie bag could act like a little sauna and steam the cookie. But I'd love to hear the results of your test under different heat and humidity levels! Let us know!

My husband putting it in the car all day.  I have some cookies that will not be eaten.  I'll package them and see what happens.

I had an accident yesterday and I will look into the experiment tomorrow when I feel better.

Gosh, I hope it wasn't serious. Do take care!

I was chasing off some turkeys and I stepped on an uneven surface and fell down on the cement.  I twisted my ankle, bruised and scrapped both knees and tweaked my neck and shoulder.  I'm calling it turkey karma.

@Econlady, you poor dear.  How awful.  I can see chasing chickens away, but turkeys?  Therein lies a story.   Don't push it, rest.

We have wild turkeys in our neighborhood that peck at our lawn and poop on our driveway.  At first they were cute, but have definitely become pests.

You ok? Accidents can be so very scary...and sometimes the results of one doesn't show up until after some time has passed. Please take care!!

Thanks for caring
