The first step in freezing cookies properly is to let them completely cool. Even if they’re just the slightest bit warm when you go to put them in the container, they can cause condensation to form. And condensation is not something you need ruining your delicious cookies!

Once your cookies are cool to the touch, they’re ready to be stored in an airtight container. However, to ensure your cookies don’t go stale or get freezer burn, you should separate the layers with pieces of parchment paper. If you don’t have parchment paper, aluminum foil also works.

Now that you know these simple tips, you’ll be able to enjoy your Christmas cookies all year long!
