How to Store Cookies

If you plan on making these cookies in advance, it is important to store them properly. Cookies can keep for a week if you use proper storing methods. Here are some tips:

  • Store soft and crisp cookies separately at room temperature.
  • Keep soft cookies in airtight containers.
  • To help soft cookies retain moisture, you can add a slice of bread or piece of apple to the container.
  • Store these cookies in single layers between wax paper.

Can You Freeze Cookies

Freezing cookies can make them last longer. As a rule of thumb, crisp cookies will freeze better than soft or moist cookies. You can freeze baked goods in airtight containers or freezer bags for up to 3-months.

Keep in mind that chocolate-dipped cookies may discolor if frozen. When you thaw cookies, you will want to leave them out at room temperature.
