Storing cookies in the freezer
Baking a lot of cookies means storing a lot of cookies, especially when they aren't going to be eaten right away. Knowing how to store cookies in the freezer can easily solve the cookie storage problem.
Cookies, along with other foods, can be easily freezer-burned. But taking the time to freeze cookies the right way will ensure they come out of the freezer just as fresh as they came out of the oven.
How To Freeze Cookies
- Make sure the cookies have cooled completely. Excess condensation will cause water droplets to form on the cookies, making them more susceptible to freezerburn.
- Put a batch of cookies inside a plastic, heavy-duty freezer bag.
- Close the bag partway, then insert a drinking straw into the bag and suck out an excess air.
- Finish sealing the bag.
- Using heavy-duty aluminum foil, wrap the entire bag.
- Store flat in the freezer.
How To Unthaw Frozen Cookies
After freezing the cookies, thawing the cookies is easy. Take the cookies out of the freezer and allow them to sit in the plastic wrap and foil for about two hours. Then, unwrap the cookies to avoid the condensation from settling on the cookies.
