Can someone please tell me if I am doing something wrong? I baked NFSC on Thurs. and stored them in an airtight container. On Fri. I decorated with a glace and left them out to dry. When I went to package them on Sat. some were so soft that they broke just from being lifted of the racks. The cookies were about 1/4 in. thick.

how did they seem before you iced them? was it a rainy weekend at your house?

when it's humid, I often bake my cookies a little bit longer and let them cool completely before boxing them up in an air tight container...

sorry I can't be of more help!

Thanks Bonniebakes! yes it was a rainy weekend here( I live in new orleans) and the cookies were crunchy before and very soft the next day.

anytime I put my cookies in an airtight container they get soft!

That happened to me last year when i made graduation cap shapes. The tassels broke off while packaging because they were so soft. I chalked it up to humidity as it's not happened again since then.
