Do you know that storage is vital to maintaining the freshness of the biscuits? Saving your biscuits for later means putting them inside a tightly sealed container and store. Depending on where you store them, it lasts for days and stays fresh.
Store them in the cupboard, fridge or even in freezers. You may want to wrap it in little batches with foil before placing in the freezer to make it easier to take out later on. Honestly, I rarely got the chance to store them at home since once the biscuits are done, it won’t last long with the kids around.
If you want to set aside plenty of biscuits for future need, I suggest placing them separately in small packages. At least, when you can’t resist the craving, getting a package or two is a lot easier than pulling out everything.

Remember: Never store raw biscuits inside a cupboard.
You see, in this method, there are two ways to heat biscuits. First is the use of aluminum foil and the other one is the application of glaze. Always keep the heat low so not to dry up your biscuits, making it hard and brittle.

Comparing to cupboards, the fridge is cooler and consistent when it comes to temperature. Keep up the rule of using a tightly sealed container as well as the storing in small packages.

Remember to use a non-stick pan when heating and always turn the heat on to low. Make sure that you heat both sides evenly.
