    Good evening.

    I have a small home-based bakery and I have a sugar cookie recipe that I've worked on for years.  I now have a large client that would like me to supply them with my cookies.  Their one concern, is that the cookies need to have an approximate shelf life of 6 months.  I've looked at inverted sugar which I believe will keep my cookies soft (they are quite soft to begin with), and I know due to the amount of unsalted butter, they would be prone to becoming rancid.

    Does anyone out there in ChefTalk-land have any thoughts, suggestions, advice?  Thanks so much for your help!  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/chef.gif
