How to Store Cookies
Airtight plastic storage containers and resealable plastic bags will help keep cookies fresh longer. Metal tins are also good if the lids seal tightly. Let cookies cool completely before storing. Store crisp and soft cookies in separate containers or the crisp cookies will also become soft.
Place cookie dough on parchment-covered baking sheets to prevent cookies from sticking to pans and to help keep baking sheets clean between batches.
How to Store Crisp Cookies
Airtight container is essential for crisp cookies. If cookies lose their crispness, heat at 300°F about 5 min. Cool completely before serving.
