4 Tips on Storing Your Cookies Safely: A blog on Tips for Storing Your Cookies
Wikipedia has an apt description of a cookie. According to the online encyclopedia, “A cookie is a baked or cooked snack or dessert that is typically small, flat and sweet. It usually contains flour, sugar, egg, and some type of oil, fat, or butter. It may include other ingredients such as raisins, oats, chocolate chips, nuts, etc.” While it is undoubtedly an accurate description, it says nothing about a cookie’s crunch, gooey texture, or the fact that it is awesomeness reincarnated!

4 Tips on Storing Your Cookies Safely
There is something basic about cookies that you should know. There are two types of cookies mostly baked –dry cookies and soft cookies. Not only do their tastes differ but they must also be stored using different techniques. Before you order your favorite Choco cookies or ginger cookies, make sure you have ample air-tight containers. Parchment papers, freezer bags also come in handy.
Storing Dry Cookies
So here is what you need to do for storing dry cookies.
- Store them in air-tight containers, preferably Tupperware, but remember to do so at room temperature. The cookies should not be fresh out of the oven and hot, neither should they come out of the freezer.
- We recommend you use separate freezer bags to store individual cookies. This increases the longevity of the cookies so that you can enjoy their days after you baked or purchased them.
Storing Soft Cookies
The thing about soft cookies is that they have a chewy texture which means that if they are exposed to air, they lose their moisture and thus become stale. If you like cookies to be soft and chewy, here is how you can improve their longevity.
- Never pack different flavored cookies in the same jar. Flavors from one jar, especially stronger ones, can easily seep into the rest, thereby destroying them.
- Placing parchment paper or wax paper between cookies can prevent the chewy cookies from sticking to each other.
Cookies are meant to be enjoyed with hot tea, coffee, or simply on their own. Have they when you feel low, munch on them when you are overjoyed, take a bite when you are worried too much – basically always have them!We like to keep our jar of cookies handy – in the morning and during the nights. Ours don’t get stale nor do they lose their texture. Follow the above-mentioned tips and we are sure you will also be able to enjoy your cookies.
At Bakers’ Fun, you will fund some fun decorative cakes using cookies. They not only elevate the look of the cake but give a new dimension.
