Packaging Cookies: Reusing Oatmeal Container

Today I made chocolate meringue cookies for Phoebe to bring to a friend's house. They were too delicate to put in a cellophane bag. I searched the Tupperware drawer and found boxes that were either too big or too small. And then I found a nearly empty box (cylinder?) of oatmeal. Aha! Sturdy, clean, recyclable. Best of all, it was just the right size for two dozen cookies. I dressed it up a bit with a brown paper lunch bag and some ribbon, but you can always proudly display the Quaker Oats label.
