       Title: Tips for Storing & Freezing Cookies
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
            Cookie hints:
      1). Separate soft and crisp textured cookies for storage. Soft cookies
   should be kept in tightly covered containers. Crisp cookies may be stored
   in a cookie jar or container with loose fitting lid in a dry climate. In
   humid climate, store crisp cookies in a tightly covered container.
      2). If soft cookies begin to dry out, add a piece of apple or bread to
   the container to help them retain moisture. If crisp cookies become soggy
   and are not decorated, heat in a 300~ oven for 3-5 minutes to crisp them.
      3). Store frosted cookies and thumb print cookies in a single layer in a
   tightly covered container. If need be for space, layer cookies between
   waxed paper to protect.
      4). Bar cookies may be stored, tightly covered, in baking pan. Some may
   require refrigeration because of ingredients in them.
      5). Unbaked cookie dough can be refrigerated for up to one week or
   frozen for up to 6 weeks. Rolls of dough should be sealed tightly in
   plastic wrap; other doughs should be stored in airtight containers.
      6). Crisp cookies freeze better than soft cookies. Bars and brownies are
   an exception to this rule since they freeze extremely well.
      7). Freeze unfrosted cookies from 9-12 months. Separate layers with
   waxed paper or plastic wrap.
      8). Freeze frosted cookies uncovered until they are firm. Then pack them
   in airtight container lined with plastic wrap or foil. They can be frozen
   for 2-3 months.
      9). Cardboard containers are not recommended for storage as the flavor
   and aroma from the box may be absorbed by the cookies.
     10). Frozen cookies thaw in about 10 minutes at room temperature.
