Keeping cookies tasting fresh

My cookies taste great the day I make them, right out of the oven, and for the rest of that day. I put leftover cookies in canisters with gaskets in the lid and a locking mechanism that is designed to keep the cookies fresh. Next day, cookies don't taste nearly as good. They aren't stale, but they don't have that Day 1 taste. Does anyone have this problem? If so, how do you keep your cookies tasting Day 1 fresh? Thanks!

That's a good question. I don't think I'm confusing the two, but maybe I am. Texture is definitely different, either more crumbly, softer, or drier, depends on the cookie. Taste is slightly off from Day 1. To me, cookies just taste better on Day 1.

I have a cookie business and all cookies are frozen as soon as I can. This keeps them fresh. Most of my cookies are decorated with Royal icing or glaze, then individually bagged and frozen in an airtight container. I do the same with Christmas cookies as well. They will stay fresh for a few months if frozen. Also, a lot has to do with your recipe, the type of oven you have (electric or gas). If you have gas, always put a pan of water in the oven as gas stoves allow moisture to escape whereas, electric holds it in.

Each cookie is individually bagged or shrink wrapped (with food safe wrappers), then put into an airtight container with a tight enough lid to be sure no more air can enter.

What happen if you not airtight your box or container of cookies?

Freezing is still better than leaving them out as long as you don't leave them frozen for too long. I'd say no longer than 3 months, but I have tried cookies that were frozen longer and they were fine, just more of a dulled taste. I've used food storage bags too, but each of my cookies are individually bagged as well.
