Store: Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days at room temperature.Freeze Cookie Dough: you can freeze this cookie dough before rolling for up to 3 months. When ready to use, allow to thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then bring to room temperature for about 1 hour. Then roll and continue with the recipe as directed.Freeze Baked Cookies: unfrosted or frosted cookies freeze well up to 2 months. After baking, allow cookies to cool completely. Place them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet to freeze them, then transfer them to a freezer-safe plastic storage bag. When ready to eat, thaw overnight in the refrigerator.Extra Recipe Tips:
Butter: when making cookies I like to use European style butter, such as Kerrygold, President, or Land O Lakes® Extra Creamy Unsalted Butter (European style) for extra buttery flavor and fluffiness, but any butter will work fine.
Chilling: please don't skip this step! Chilling helps the cookies retain shape, plus helps with flavor and texture.
Use a scale to measure out your ingredients. If you don't have a kitchen scale, the best way to measure flour is to use a spoon to scoop the flour into the measuring cup, and then I use a knife (straight-edged) to level the flour across the measuring cup.Do not dip a measuring cup directly into the flour bin or you can compact it and get up to 25% more flour.
