How do I store baked cookies?

When storing baked cookies, there are a few key rules to remember. First and foremost, ensure that your cookies are completely cool before attempting to store them – if they’re still hot, they’ll steam and become soggy.

Once your cookies have reached room temperature, place them in an airtight container with a lid. You can also use a plastic zip-top bag, but press out any excess air before sealing it.

If you plan on storing your cookies for an extended period, consider placing a slice of bread in the container or bag with them – the bread will absorb any excess moisture and help keep your cookies fresher.

Store your cookies at room temperature or in the fridge, depending on the type of cookie and the climate in your area.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your baked cookies stay fresh and delicious for as long as possible.

Can I freeze baked cookies?

The answer is yes, with a few considerations. Firstly, ensuring that your cookies have fully cooled before freezing is important to avoid condensation from forming and turning into ice crystals.

Secondly, cookies high in fat or moisture tend to freeze better than crisp or brittle cookies.

Finally, when it comes time to defrost, it’s recommended to do so gradually in the refrigerator to maintain freshness and texture.

By following these guidelines, freezing baked cookies can be a successful and handy way to extend their lifespan.
