Do they belong in the refrigerator? If so, why?


  • absolutely. you see pablo, the chips need to be crunchy. not mushy/gooey. either of those states is no state for a chocolate chip to be in. crunchy chips and soft dough is the hallmark of a superior cookie.

  • It really depends on the cookie and the life-state of the cookie. Most cookies are best in the period between five and thirty minutes after being pulled from the oven. After that, it doesn't really much matter. As a former Chocolate Chip Cookie Company baker, I ate plenty of cookies in my day and I really enjoyed: 1. Ground up fresh chocolate chip cookies and 2. Week old cookie cake trimmings with white icing.

    Basically, your store bought cookies have all been stored under warm/room temperature conditions for weeks or months, so refrigerating them after you buy them isn't a chemical/biological necessity. You could just pop them in the freezer to chill them or in a toaster oven to warm them up.

    Girl scout cookies must always be kept in the freezer though, because that is where my grandmother keeps them.

  • the real question is: do cookies (in general) taste better cold, or not cold? I submit that cookies taste better not cold. there are, of course, exceptions, as Adolph has pointed out- such as Thin Mints or some other Girl Scout Cookies...

    On a related note, I also think that bread tastes better not cold. Some people I know also put bread in the refrigerator. But we can debate how wrong that is in an other thread.
