How Long Do White Chocolate Chip Cookies Keep?

If you store these cookies correctly, they will last up to a week, so they are a great option for holiday food gifts, cookie exchanges and just planning ahead!

Once they have cooked to room temperature, place them in an airtight container with the layers separated by parchment. Keep them in a cool dark place, like a pantry or cupboard.
