anyone do it?  I wonder if they would make it, edible, if I used Priority which takes about 4 days to where they'd be going?

We do it.  Actually my wife does it.  She loves to make sugar cookies, and everyone in the family loves them.  Plain, frosted & sugared.  We mail cookies to her mom and our kids quite often and everyone says they arrive unbroken and still fresh.

She wraps them in plastic wrap (2 cookies side by side, fold; 2 more, fold/finish), then several of these into Zip-Lock bags.  She then puts the Zip-Lock bags into bubble wrap that she saves from Amazon orders, then into saved Amazon boxes and we usually mail them UPS or USPS (lowest cost option).  They travel half way across the country and seems to work fine.
