  • Freezing is the best way to store cookies long term. Freezing a freshly baked cookie preserves that fresh flavor and texture so you can enjoy it any time. For best results, let your cookies cool completely, and then freeze right away.
  • You’ll need to make sure the cookies are well wrapped and protected from air. Storing unwrapped cookies will expose them to freezer burn and ice build up.

To freeze cookies

  • Place your cookies in a freezer bag and then squeeze as much air out of the bag as possible.
  • Place the bagged cookies in another airtight Tupperware container.
  • Make sure the lid is on tight!
  • Don’t forget to date and label your cookies, so you know what to grab when you’re hunting through the freezer.
  • Soft cookies, like peanut butter cookies, can might stick together, so put a piece of parchment paper, wax paper, or plastic wrap in between each of the cookies.

Cookies stored in this manner will be good for up to three months. This method means the cookies have a double layer of protection from freezer burn and ice, so they’ll stay fresher longer.
