Good, airtight container that seals well
Totally dried decorated cookies
*Note to explain the scary squirrels: We have an albino squirrel who lives in our yard. His name is Albert. My kids love him, so they needed to make white squirrel cookies to look like Albert. (And no, he didn't tell us his name was Albert, we just call him that.)
I layer parchment paper between the cookies. I prefer parchment paper to waxed paper because on the occasion that a small bit of icing hasn't dried, parchment is more forgiving than waxed. And I try to never stack the cookies one on top of the other, because sometimes that can make funny marks, or end up with a cookie sandwich.
Just keep on layering. Now, you may remember when I made these cookies, I posted that my black icing wasn't drying so well. Well, that's why you see the black cookies on the top. They were still tacky. But they did eventually dry... even in an airtight container. By putting them on the top, I kept the other cookies pretty, too.
