So, Purim is next week, I'm in the middle of getting the costumes ready. Well, one I bought because it was just too cute and the other one I'm making. I hope it will be ready before Purim-ah. I'm also making shalach manos-gift baskets. Here's the thing, I didn't want to put an unwrapped cookie in a bag with all the other nosh. So here's what I did. You can wrap 2 at a time this way.
Scotch Tape -(clear is even better)
Cookies to wrap
Take your saran wrap and cut off a rectangle being careful that it doesn't stick to itself.
Place your cookies on the opposite ends of the saran wrap-leaving extra saran wrap all around.
Fold the Saran Wrap over the cookies and onto itself. Pressing around the edges to seal it.
I then cut the middle, to separate the 2 cookies.
Then fold the extra saran wrap onto the back and tape to secure.
**The tighter you pull and fold, the nicer the cookies will look.
This can also be done with candy as seen here:
|lay your candy out on the saran wrap|
|fold and press all around|
|this it the hard part, cut in between each one,|
you will end up with a great seal. For a neater look see next pic.
|Fold over the extra saran wrap and take a small piece of scotch tape |
(smaller than the one shown in the pic) and tape it down. Flip it over and you have it wrapped really nice-see next pic
|All wrapped up|
