Hi PHIL N;
WELCOME to vbb; not too much to add; FREEZE OR REFRIGERATE nuts & morsels, in well sealed bags to keep them from spoiling or being consumed by "somebody"There is a " somebody " in every household!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One more thing, there is " BEST BY " date on MORSELS packages, use up or freeze before that date!...morsels may get a white ash appearance when frozen.I've been told " just use them , as usual".
Don't let your baking inexperience, stop you from getting in there& " giving it your best effort; we were all novices at one time; even theVERY BEST BAKERS among us; pretty soon you will be one [ A VBB]too
There is nothing like the sense of satisfaction & pride you get when you taste your r first homemade cookie, still warm from the oven
