The Key to Baking Great Tasting Cookies!

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!

A new way to store your cookies, desserts and more!

Sweet Stackers are the solution to layering pastries, cookies, bakery or even finger foods in one storage container without disturbing their appearance or plainly having them stick together.  Sweet Stackers are perfect for those who transport treats or appetizers to a party.  Why fumble around trying to carry 2 or 3 containers when you can safely transport them in one container?  They are also perfect when hosting a party, because honestly where do you store all of these containers of prepared food, especially when your refrigerator is full.  Sweet Stackers also work great for freezing food that you don’t want to stick or freeze together.

Transport Mini Desserts to Thanksgiving

Sweet Stackers are available in four different size trays and are made to fit major brand containers (Rubbermaid, Tupperware, etc.).  The trays come with two different sized “stackers” to fit 2 or 3 layers of cookies or dessert in one typical 3″ deep container.  The stackers are repositionable and can be placed in between the food items.  All pieces are made from corrugated plastic and can be easily wiped down for reuse.

Storing Your Decorated Sugar Cookies

Sweet Stackers – a resolution to storing decorated cookies and more!

In the past, when I was decorating sugar cookies I had cookies all over my kitchen and I would run out of counter space.  I think I lost a few cookies along the way because I just didn’t have the space and a few ended up on the floor and then the garbage.  The icing took quite a while to set and I was “stuck” because it made it hard for me to do anything else in the kitchen…from making dinner to even cleaning up the dishes.  Plus the cookies taste better when they are properly stored in an air-tight container!

Sweet Stackers saved my decorated cookies and space in my kitchen!  The Stackable Food Storage System allowed me to decorate the cookies right on the trays and layer the trays into a plastic food storage container.  This was a great way to leave the cookies to set, safely organized and without messing the decorations.

The trays are made of sturdy, food-grade BPA free, corrugated plastic, therefore making them reusable and easy to wipe down if icing drips onto them.

Sweet Stackers fit into a variety of major brand food storage containers.  Visit our Product page to view a cross-reference chart.

Now you can store 3 layers of decorated cookies in a 3″ deep container!  Or add another set of trays, stacking more tiers into a deeper container.

Here are a few cookie projects and how Sweet Stackers work in a variety of food storage containers:
