Expert Tips and FAQs

How long will with these cookies last?

Like most cookies, they will taste best the first few days after you bake them. If you store them in the refrigerator, they will last up to a week. And you can freeze them for up to one month. Always store cookies in an airtight container and wait to put them in the container until they are fully cooled.

What to do if your Raspberry Frosting doesn’t have enough “raspberry” flavor.

The “raspberry” flavor in the frosting will continue to develop over time. This is a frosting that tastes best after a couple of hours or ideally, the next day. So you might want to make the frosting the night before you make the cookies.
