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.
