1. Number of cookies will depend on cut out size and how thick you roll your dough. It fills 3 baking trays.2. Swapping trays halfway - this means that you put both trays in the oven with one in the middle of the oven and the other underneath. Halfway through the bake time, switch them around so the one underneath moves to the top shelf, and the tray on top moves to the shelf underneath. This ensures they both bake evenly because the top shelf bakes faster than the shelf underneath.3. Source - adapted from this Sugar Cookies recipe by Sugar, Spun, Run. 4. Storage - Keeps in an airtight container for a week. After this, they are still edible and totally delicious but they do start to dry out a touch (I think….I may be a bit too picky when I'm estimating shelf life of food for recipes I share!!). I would never describe them as stale, but they are better in Week 1.
