How long are the cookies good for when you seal them this way? I'm making Christmas cookies for my husband's employees but one of the guys won't be back until the 27th. I'm planning on doing all of my baking on the 19th. Is that too long for the cookies to keep?

Are we talking about actual cello bags, or poly bags? Cello bags are the really clear, really crisp ones that make noise as you handle them. Poly bags are like sandwich bags.

I just looked at their site. I can't believe the great prices they have on their products. Thanks for sharing this link with us.

In my experience, the polypropylene "cello" bags heat-seal better than true cellophane bags. I once broke an expensive heat sealer (impulse sealer) trying to heat seal a true cellophane bag! You need to hold it on for longer with true cellophane, and this eventually burned out my machine, LOL...

Thank you! I just ordered a 10 cases of 10 bags, weird...ordering 5 cases or 10 was a difference of $2-3. I better make more cookies. thumbs_up.gif

Can I ask which poly bags you're buying to use for your cookies? I always make cookies for the holiday and these would be great to have on hand to seal them up quickly and easily.

Can you use the hair straightener (flat iron) on the poly bags too?
