How to Store Homemade Cookies

These chocolate brownie cookies are nice and chewy. To keep them that way, you’ll want to follow my storage tips.

First, be sure to let the cookies cool to room temperature before storing them.

After that, transfer the cookies to a gallon-size plastic storage bag. To keep the chewy brownie cookies soft, I like to put a slice of bread in the bag with the cookies.

The moisture from the bread some humidity inside the bag that helps keep the moisture locked inside your chocolate brownie cookies.

It’s a tip that I learned from my mom!

I hope you love these wonderful cookies as much as my family has!

  1. Oh my!!! I just made these and they are super easy and turned out exactly like the picture. So, so good!! Perfectly crispy on the outside and soft or chewy on the inside. I will definitely be making these again! If there were a star rating it definitely gets ***** 5 stars from me! Thank you for sharing your recipe, Annie

  2. I will never make brownies in a pan ever again. These brownie cookies are so easy to make. Thank you for the recipe. 

  3. These are fantastic! Just made them for the second time this morning, and my twin sister made them also and loved them. They make up so quickly, and I like how it makes a ‘small’ batch, instead of 4 dozen or so. Timing was perfect with my oven, as well as my sister’s, which is temperamental. Love how they stay soft for the 3 days it takes us to eat them.
    Thank you so much for this recipe- it’s a keeper!!
