How many days in advance can I make cookies for a birthday party?

Dayn - from Missouri City, TX

Cookies with a high butterfat content will usually stay fresh for a week or longer in a tightly covered container. Refrigerate cookies if they contain cream cheese, cream frosting or custard and other dairy products. They will last for up to 3 - 5 days there, loosely wrapped in foil.
