Absolutely! It is far better to have an elevated blood sugar. Too low of a blood sugar and you are in big trouble. There is a possibility of brain damage and possibly death.

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.

Q&A: How long are sealed shortbread cookies fresh?

Question by callieco: How long are sealed shortbread cookies fresh?
I bought Valentine’s Day shortbread cookies a few weeks ago to send to a friend in Afghanistan. I just got her address so I was curious if they are even good enough to send. The are still in the original plaster container, unopened. I would hate for her to open them and they are bad. How long does a cookie like that last? Thanks!
The package has no expiration date.

Best answer:

Answer by Sindy
From what I’ve experienced – commercially available unopened shortbread cookies should be good at least for period of 2-3 months. However go by the expiry date on the package, if it has one. Once opened – make sure it’s used up in a week.

Question by silvershell37: How long can you freeze baked sugar cookies?
I wanted to “prebake” sugar cookies for Easter and decorate them a day or two before. How long can I freeze the baked cookies before they go bad?

Answer by Butter Cup
Wait till they’re cooled and wrap in saran wrap then pop inside a zip lock bag and they will last 6 months. Keeping the air out is key!

Question by amyath: How long before should I make cookies, cupcakes and brownies for a basket gift?
I’m gonna make some gift baskets for birthday and Easter for the same weekend (april 12th), it will be around 4 baskets with decorated cookies, cupcakes, brownies and candies and I don’t want to make everything on Friday in order to rush with everything. Also I have another job during the day. So, how long could make all of this before without them losing taste or consistence? Can I make them 1 week before?

yes you can make them a week ahead , freeze them do not frost them until the night before they will stay fresh but may shrink a little but its normal . they will bounce right back after you thaw them.

Question by Lala: how long do pecans last unshelled?
i’ve heard of walnuts and pecans going rancid….but how and when? i have a box of shelled pecans that i leave in my pantry. i’ve had the box for two weeks. are they still good? i need the pecans to make mexican wedding cookies.

Answer by jon_miller14
If you keep them in an air tight container, and freeze them, they will last for months. The trick is to keep the oils in the nuts from going rancid… Air does that, so keep them away from air.
