Hi fellow cookie bakers. I was wondering what shelf life you would give a butter cookie?
I usually bag mine and tie or seal with a sealer in a cello bag.
What would be safe?
also what shelf life for cookies stacked and stored in an airtight container?
TIA.

Shelf Life? Are they supposed to last longer than a day????? They seem to stay on my hips forever, though.

Sorry, can't actually help

There is another thread on this right now actually. Some people say a week from start to finish. I give them 5 days (including the day of baking) before I throw them away. This is wrapped and tied in the cello bag too.

Some people freeze them too though in tupperware bins and layered with wax paper.

I usually go with the 5 days. I'll eat them after that (I just can't throw them away!), but I can start to tell the difference in taste. Freezing them will keep them fresh for a long time!

I'm in agreement with GeminiRJ and cylstrial. About 5 days and then they're mine (with a cup of hot chocolate) icon_biggrin.gif
