When you buy or receive some delicious biscuits, you most likely enjoy at least a few before closing the pack for later. Like many different sweets and snacks, if not properly stored, your delicious biscuits will not be quite as scrumptious when you snack on them again. No matter the type of biscuits you prefer, there is a proper way to store them all. Here are the most important tips to keep in mind.

Soft cookies

If you have some soft and delicious biscuits that you want to keep fresh, you will need to take steps to ensure that they don’t lose their moisture. If you leave them out in the open, they will become soggy or chewy which will mean that they will be difficult to eat. Place them in a sealed container and make sure that this container is just big enough to fit them all inside. Too much air exposure is what ruins these cookies.

Crunchy cookies

Crunchy cookies are delicious biscuits that will need to be stored in such a way that they enjoy just a bit of ventilation. You don’t want to leave them out on a plate on your coffee table for a week, but you should place them in a cookie jar with a loose lid. This way, they are protected but there is still some air flowing and this keeps them crunchy.

Proper arranging

When storing your delicious biscuits, remember that you need to store them in a container that will hold them all. Just as you don’t want to let your soft cookies come into contact with too much air, so too, you don’t want to squeeze too many cookies into the container either. Instead, you should separate them into batches before storing.

Separate storage

Speaking of separating your delicious biscuits, you need to make sure that you don’t store different flavours together or this could cause the different flavours to mix. Strong flavours like chocolate can change the way your sugar biscuits taste, for example.

Try freezing

If you have made far too many delicious biscuits and you can’t quite eat them or share them at this stage, you can always try freezing them. You will need to pack each flavour separately. You will also need to place just a few biscuits in each bag and remove as much air as possible. If possible, vacuum packing them is ideal. Label each package so that you know which flavour you are about to enjoy.

As you can see, you don’t need to eat all of those delicious biscuits right away or let them go bad. There are several ways in which you can maintain their texture, flavour and freshness.
