How to store cinnamon roll cream cheese cookies?

You can store these cookies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days. Because they have cream cheese frosting it's better not to leave them out at room temperature.
If you do prefer to leave them out at room temperature though, you can leave them unfrosted in an airtight container, and then whenever you're ready to enjoy them frost them and enjoy!
