It’s Tip Friday on Marilyn’s Treats. And todays tip is Storing Cookies.
The first thing to keep in mind when storing cookies is that they need to be completely cool before you put them away, otherwise they’ll steam, soften up, and stick to each other. Cookies can usually be stored at room temperature, in airtight containers, for up to a week. Appropriate containers can be cookie jars or tins, screw top plastic jars or snap-top plastic boxes, or a tightly closed plastic bags. Bar cookies with lots of fruit or dairy ingredients should be refrigerated, well-wrapped. If you plan to store cookies for more than a week, we advise wrapping them so air can’t get to them, and freezing for up to 3 months.
