I made 70 of these for my sister's bridal shower about 2 years ago. I would love to have the opportunity to try these again, now that I've been making cookies a little while. I think they would come out so much better. I used the NFSC recipe and they spread a little, leaving them not uniform/crisp like the one's in Martha's picture. Everyone thought they were great, even if they weren't up to my expectations.
If I remember correctly, I purchased the boxes from www.papermart.com
. I used cardstock (scrapbook section of Michael's)cut into squares to line the bottom of the boxes. You may also want to make 1 sample cookie cake to determine what size box you should get.
You may have already thought of this but: put a dab of royal icing on the underside of the very bottom cookie - this will keep it from sliding around in the box.
I liked making these but, they are time consuming!
