How to Store Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies
Once the cookies have strawberry cheesecake cookies have cooled you want to make sure to store them in an airtight container.

How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies Soft
The most important thing you can do to keep any cookie, including these chocolate covered strawberry cookies, soft is making sure that the cookies are not overbaked. When cookies are overbaked, they always become crispy no matter if the recipe is designed to be soft. The other way to make sure the cookies are soft is to store them properly. If you find that the cookies are a bit harder than you want when you are ready to eat them, you can warm them in the microwave for a few seconds and this will soften the cookies.
