Can these be stored in airtight container? How long? I always like to make my cookies about 3 weeks in advance.

Hi there! If you're freezing, you can make these 2 weeks in advance. If you're just putting them in an airtight container, 1 week in advance. Enjoy!

I will try this one, i had the recipe for a cookie that used the spice drops, they were very good.
