How long will homemade cookies be good for?

Question by Asaad: How long will homemade cookies be good for?
How long will homemade cookies be good for? I made a batch of peanut butter cookies for a friend of mine, and I mailed them to her for her birthday. I sealed all of them (2 per bag) air tight.

The cookies are going from the USA to Russia. In total there is going to be about 2 weeks in between when she gets them and when I sent them. I’ve mailed her muffins and they seemed to be fine after about 12 days, so I’d assume cookies would last AT LEAST as long.

    As long as they’re in air tight bags, they should stay good until they’re opened. Usually after you open a bag, that’s when they start to get stale.

    I’ve made cookies before too, that I’ve wrapped in several bags, and they only get stale if you open the bag several times over a couple of days. If she eats both cookies at the same time, it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Hope this helps!
