I don't even know what this means, Tracy!
Could you rephrase your question?
Two weeks with milk or three without -- refers to the glace' icing ONLYbefore
you put it on your cookies and let it dry.
If you make the glace' with milk
, keep it in the fridge
and it will be good for two weeks
If you make the icing with water
, it will be good, in the fridge
, for three weeks
(Always keep the icing in an airtight container. Make sure your container doesn't have any weird residual smells, you know, like onions or garlic or something.)
How long your cookies will be good (iced or not) varies. Keep them in an airtight container at room temperature. What temperature is your room? Is it humid? All these things must be taken into account. Mine keep for a couple of weeks -- after that they start to taste a little stale. Edible still, but not nearly as tasty. I have frozen cookies for up to three months and they tasted great. How you freeze them also determines how long they'll last. Is it a truly airtight container? How fresh were your cookies before
you put them away?
