Q: My sister and I made Linzer cookies, and they turned out swimmingly, but I stored them in a Tupperware container with a lid that fall slightly short of airtight, and now the cookies are soggy.

Is there any way I can save them at this point?

Editor: Ariel, your cookies got soggy because of the jam sandwiched between them. This will happen pretty consistently with jam-sandwiched cookies.

Readers, do you have any answer for Ariel's cookie dilemma?
