I haven't done many cookies yet, but am planning on doing some themed cookies for my kids birthday party (birthdays only 3 days appart so one large party)

I would like to do the cookies as early as I can as I will also be decorating 2 cakes (one for each kid) the day before the party. Can someone please tell me how long cookies stay fresh for and is there a trick for storing them?

Thanks

put them in a ziplok bag and they keep just fine for days.

The cookies should taste fresh for 5-7 days if placed in a container or bagged. You can push it longer, but that's the time frame I always like to keep in mind.

I totally agree. If you need to make them before that, I'd suggest you freeze them.

I like to eat or serve them by the 5th day. They will make it a couple of days longer...but personal preference is 5 days or less.
