How do you store Gluten Free Cookies?
All of the recipes I’m about to share are easy to store and last about 2-3 weeks at room temperature as long as they are stored in an airtight container.
You can also Freeze cookies if you bake in advance. I like to put them in freezer zip lock bags. They will keep for about a month frozen. When you are ready to eat them, thawing is easy!
Just let them sit on the counter at room temperature until completely thawed.
Then enjoy with a nice glass of milk!
