My most commonly used size is 4x7". I also use 5x7 and 3x5 quite a bit. I do sometimes use larger ones, but not often. You can use cello wrap from a roll if you're in a pinch - just cut to size and tape it at the back.

I use sandwich bags, put the cookie to one corner twist, tie and snip the extra bag off.

Don't forget to take into consideration the fact that you aren't putting something flat into the bags. I measured cookie cutters and my bags still weren't big enough because of the thickness of the cookie. Gussetted (sp?) bags are a safe bet if you are ordering online and aren't sure if your size will work.

I was needing a larger bag for a large bunny and decided to use an everyday baggie. I cut the zipper part off right above it and then it worked perfectly. I then used some more for some other cookies and decided they are pretty handy!

Sandwich baggies work out to be the same once you cut the zipper off the zippered ones, the good thing with the sandwich baggies are you get more for less! I think you can buy them in the dollar general store for $2.00 for three hundred!
