Keeping cookies fresh with FoodSaver

When I want to keep my cookies as fresh as possible during the holidays, I always use my FoodSaver Space Saving Appliance to vacuum seal my cookies for freshness. This way, I can prepare a big batch of cookies in advance before a holiday party and be guaranteed they stay fresh.

It’s also handy if you like to make a double batch of cookies and store some in the freezer, so you can have cookies on hand whenever you like!

The FoodSaver Space Saving Appliance takes up 50% less space than the traditional FoodSaver countertop vacuum sealers, which makes it perfect for anyone who has limited space in their kitchen. (Like me!)

How to make Chewy White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

To make these cookies start by mixing the dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.

In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until creamy. The mixture should be whipped up and look fluffy. It’s best to use butter that has been left on the counter for at least 30 minutes for this step. Then add the egg and vanilla and whip together.

Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and slowly mix until incorporated. Once the flour is all incorporated you can put the mixer on high speed for 30 seconds to make sure everything is really mixed.

Lastly, add in the chocolate chips, cranberries and pecans and gently mix or fold in with a spatula.

Bake these cookies at 350 degrees F for 8-12 minutes. You’ll know they’re done when they start to look brown around the edges. Make sure to let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.

Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Use rolled oats, not quick oats in these cookies. Rolled oats give the cookies that great chewy texture.
  • These cookies will spread a bit as you bake them, so make sure to leave enough space between the cookies on the baking sheet.
  • Depending on your oven, these cookies may need a couple fewer or more minutes to bake. Mine take 10 minutes exactly. You’ll know the cookies are done when they are slightly brown around the edges.
