Making cookies is not at all a difficult task. However, the effort of making cookies will be wasted if the cookies are not stored correctly. Store baked cookies only when they are completely cool. It helps to cool cookies on wire racks so that no steam is collected at the bottom of the cookies. Storing warm cookies will make them soggy! In case your cookies become soft, make them “crispy” again by baking them for 5 minutes and then cooling thoroughly before storing. Always keep the cookies in airtight containers and don’t place different types of cookies in the same container.
