The key to making the best rollout cookies is how you store them.
Have you ever tasted sugar cookies that are beautifully decorated, but really don’t taste great because they are hard and crunchy? Mostly likely this occurs when the cookies are not stored properly while decorating the cookies. Decorating can be a long tedious process that requires the cookies to sit out and dry to prevent the icing from getting ruined or smudged. Many decorators will leave them dry on their kitchen countertops overnight. Usually this results in dry, crunchy cookies because they weren’t stored in an air-tight container.
I have been using the same sugar cookie recipe for years and found Sweet Stackers to be a baker’s best tool for cookie storage. Once the cookies come out of the oven, they are immediately set on a cookie rack to cool. When completely cooled, they can be decorated or stored in an air-tight container until the decorating process begins. While icing the cookies, it is possible to keep the cookies fresh and stored safely in an air-tight container! The cookies can be placed in the bottom of a container or on the Sweet Stackers trays as they are being iced. The risers can be carefully positioned in between the cookies and the stackable trays can be lowered above a layer of cookies without touching them. The cookies can finish drying in the air-tight container and this will produce soft, buttery cookies for days to come!
Sweet Stackers allowed me to get 36 cookies in a 9 x 12 x 3 inch container without the cookies touching each other and getting smudged. Sweet Stackers come in 4 different sizes made to fit a variety of major brand food storage containers. Great for storing food items like iced or jelly topped cookies, dessert bars, bite-sized appetizers and transporting them to a party without a mess. No need for those over-sized, pricey cupcake and cookie carriers. Sweet Stackers are reusable and versatile – a great food storage tool for any baker!
