How to Store Funfetti Sandwich Cookies
These Funfetti cookies do not have to be refrigerate so you will want to store them at room temperature in an airtight container or freezer bag. Another option, since these cookies are filled with buttercream frosting, they can get messy so you can also keep them on a plate and then wrap them with plastic wrap.
Can I Freeze These Cookies
You can absolutely freeze these Funfetti cookies. I like to wrap each cookie individually or place them on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer, or a plate if it doesn’t fit, and then wait for about an hour. Once the cookies are frozen, move them to an airtight container or a plastic bag. This keeps the cookies from falling apart or from sticking together.
When you are ready to enjoy these cookies, you can move the cookies from the freeze and keep them at room temperature. If the filling is coming out of the cookies and is touching the plastic, you will want to remove the plastic wrap before the cookies fry.
