Best Practices for Storing Frosted Sugar Cookies

Frosted sugar cookies are a classic dessert that is perfect for any occasion. However, storing these cookies can be tricky. If not stored properly, the frosting may melt or become sticky, ruining the presentation of your delicious treats. In this blog post, we will discuss some tips and tricks on how to store frosted sugar cookies so that they remain fresh and beautiful.

1. Let them cool completely

Before storing frosted sugar cookies, it’s important to ensure that they have cooled down completely to avoid trapping moisture inside the container. This can cause the frosting to melt or become sticky when you try to remove them from their storage container later.

Cooling Tips:

  • Place your freshly baked sugar cookies on a cooling rack immediately after taking them out of the oven.
  • Avoid stacking hot cookies as this will trap heat and moisture which could result in soggy cookies.
  • If you’re short on time and need your frosted sugar cookie cool quickly then put it in the refrigerator till cooled down entirely.
  • 2.Store them individually with waxed paper

    Once your frosted sugar cookie has fully cooled off place each one individually by using waxed paper between each layer before you store them together in an air-tight container like Tupperware or Glad bags
