Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cookies

Sometimes I work really hard to stay on track with my eating, which in our house means great protein, lots of fruits and veggies and dessert only once or twice a week. It’s not about size, but about how I feel. I notice such a huge difference in how I feel. The better I eat the better I sleep, I have more energy during the day and I don’t get sick as much. And then chocolate cookies and cream cookies happen and suddenly I want to shovel them into my face faster than lightening.

And it doesn’t help that Cade is a totally cookie lover. He can pass up many a dessert but put cookies or ice cream in front of him and he’s a goner.

And with soft, chocolatey cookes with little nuggets of creamy cookies and cream candy bars can you blame us? I let the kids unwrap them all and break them into pieces too which while half end up in their mouths it also gives them something to do so I don’t hear, “I’m bored, what can I do that’s fun”. That phrase is like nails on a chalkboard to a mom. Am I right?

How Long Will Cookies Keep?

Crisp cookies should be kept in a loosely covered container in order to retain crispness.

Soft cookies should be kept in an airtight container.

Freshly baked cookies will last for about 2 to 3 weeks at normal room temperature.

Can Cookies Be Frozen?

For best freezing results, place the cookies in a single layer on a baking sheet in the freezer for a couple of hours.

When they are frozen, transfer the cookies into plastic freezer bags or airtight freezer containers.

Cookies will keep for 3 months in the freezer.

Do Cookie Sheets Need to Be Greased?

Most cookie recipes call for ungreased cookie sheets because the dough has enough fat to keep the cookies from sticking.

If you grease the cookie sheet when the recipe calls for an ungreased sheet, your cookies could spread too much and turn out thin or flat.
