Here's a good question from reader Judi, who says:
I enjoyed Emma's recent posts on making soft pretzels and had a question. I'm putting together little "Thank You" care packages for a few out-of-state friends and I wanted to include some of the pretzels but was discouraged when I saw that they're best consumed immediately and will get mushy when stored in a container.
Any suggestions for similar baked treats that travel well?
