Cookies are easy to mail, actually.  As long as they have some kind of structure that wouldn't be destroyed by the USPS.  When my oldest brother went off to college, my mom used to mail him a box of chocolate chip cookies every month.  She'd just pack a box full of them and tape the lid tightly closed, then drop it in the post.  Some concessions need to be made for more delicate cookies, including tissue paper or wadded-up wax paper.

I've mailed many a cookie to friends.  Sometimes I pack in a gift bag, sometimes a cookie tin or plastic facsimile, but always with a sturdy cardboard box and plenty of padding.

I've shipped sugar cookies, brownies, blondies, and pig cookies.  All did well, according to my experimental subjects, I mean friends.
