How long will cookies keep in the freezer and how do I store them?

I want to bake ahead (starting right after Thanksgiving) for the holidays, mostly cookies and some homemade chocolates. I have limited storage space and the freezer will probably be my main storage area. How long can I keep them in the freezer and what's the best way to pack them?

Good for you for working ahead! With proper storage, most cookies can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months. The best way to store cookies depends on the type of cookie you're baking. For example, chewy bars should be stored in a single layer in a covered airtight container. Most cookies, however, can be stored by stacking them in layers separated by wax paper and sealing them in a covered airtight container.

I've had good luck using wax paper to seperate the layers and then storing them in a glass container in the fridge.
