You can’t match the excitement of opening the door and seeing the UPS man holding the perfect size cardboard box with the Carol’s Cookies label on it.  You know it’s your favorite gourmet cookie gifts.  Maybe you’ve received 8 of our handmade 6-ounce cookies, but maybe you were lucky and received the full dozen as a gift.   Or, maybe it was a box full of 30 of our handmade mini cookie.  Regardless, since Carol’s believes “more is more,” it might be too many cookies to devour in the next couple days.  So, what can you do to make sure no crumb is wasted?

Cookie Storage

If you aren’t going to be eating all the cookies within the next 48 hours after arrival- you can just simply put the extra cookies in the freezer.  When you’re ready to enjoy your next Carol’s cookie – simply defrost them by leaving them out at room temperature for approximately 2 hours.  If your plans change, it’s easy enough to refreeze our cookies and they can be refrozen twice before they start to lose their moistness.  This is preferable over storing them in the refrigerator as that can make our cookies dry.

Repurpose Your Cookies

Be like Carol

Carol always has a cookie on-hand, no matter what she’s doing.  Going to the post office?  The hairdresser?  Have an Amazon order coming in?  Getting your oil changed?  Be like Carol and make someone’s day a little sweeter with one of her handmade cookies.  Sharing is caring after all!

It doesn’t matter if it’s a corporate cookie gift, thank you cookies, or a birthday cookie gift.  Sometimes there might just be too many cookies to eat at once.  We hope this post helps you to solve your extra cookie problems.
