HOW DO I STORE HOMEMADE COOKIES?
Air can be the enemy of baked goods, so keeping homemade cookies airtight is the key to their longevity. After the cookies have cooled, place them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. If you’re using a cookie jar, store them in a sealed storage bag in the jar. For optimal freshness, add a piece of white bread to your container, which will help keep cookies soft.
Cookies made with perishable ingredients, like ricotta, cream cheese or meringues should be stored in the fridge to help preserve them.
If you’re not planning on eating your cookies within three days, it’s best to freeze them. Place cooled cookies in layers, between sheets of parchment paper, in sealed plastic bags and store for up to a year. Cookie dough can be stored in airtight containers in the freezer for up to two months.
