Sue’s Chocolate Chip Cookies are incredibly good warm from the oven, but they stay good for several days if kept in an airtight container. Unfortunately, they don’t last long unless they are hidden. The freezer is a good hiding place, and they keep for months when frozen. To thaw, just set on the counter for a few minutes or microwave for a few seconds.
