These containers were made to look like humble brown-paper bags, but that's where the resemblance ends. Sweet and crunchy, they can hold fruit or candy and can be served as an individual dessert as part of a buffet, or offered as a take-home favor. To make Cookie "Bags," use a scalloped pastry wheel to cut the baked batter into strips about 1 1/2 inches wider than you want the bag's height to be. Place a mold on the cookie; use an offset spatula to wrap the cookie around the mold. For the bottom of the bag, fold the excess cookie as you would if wrapping a gift.
