I just wanted to thank you all for your help! I’m drying them in front of a fan and that really seems to be helping. My white will turn a little yellow by about day three but it’s consistent and not just around the edges.
I do have one more question for everyone... I’m now paranoid about sealing them up too soon...but I don’t want them to get stale before the order. What is everyone’s time frame for oven to delivery?
I'm always paranoid about my cookies getting stale too. Once flooded, I dry them in front of a fan for 8-12 hours before covering them in a lidded sheet pan. The whole process usually takes me two days from oven to sealed bag, but I'll sometimes stretch it across three days if I'm adding lots of layers and details. Once the flood is dried, the butter bleed isn't an issue for me (and the extra details usually dry quickly) so I try to keep them covered as much as possible.
