Can I refrigerate iced cookies?

Chan - from SAN DIEGO,CA., CA

You can refrigerate iced cookies, but the moisture from the fridge will affect the texture of the cookie. Cookies will become softer in the refrigerator. When wrapped tightly, most cookies will keep well at room temperature for several days. I would suggest storing iced cookies like that. If you need to keep them longer, freeze the cookies without icing them, then thaw them before icing and serving.
