  • Chill the dough for 15-30 minutes.

💙Storing Cookies

  • Most homemade cookies will maintain their taste and texture for up to 3 days. To prevent cookies from becoming stale, cover them with plastic wrap, or keep them in an airtight container.

  • To freeze cookies you've already baked, place the completely cooled treats in a single layer on a sheet pan or something else large and flat and freeze. Once the individual cookies are completely frozen, you can store them in a flat-bottomed airtight container with the layers separated by parchment paper or waxed paper.

  • Freezing cookie dough:  if you want to store the dough for longer, we recommend freezing the portioned dough balls just before you roll the dough in sugar. Simply scoop into balls and place on a parchment-lined sheet tray and freeze until solid. Place frozen balls into an airtight container or storage bag, good for up to 3 months.
