I'm not much of a cookie baker but when I do, I make them a bit thicker/bigger than normal and as soon as they cool I put them in an air tight container.

Quoting boppysmom2007:

Does this bag have all the dry ingredients in them and all you have to do is add some wet ones? If so I have found out that the bags like that the cookies do get hard alot faster cause the ingredients are normally older and you have no idea how long they sit on the shelf before you buy them. One thing that I have found is a chunk of bread in a air tight container with the cookies can help keep them moist. 

I normally buy the ingredients and put everything in a jar. That way when I want to make cookies I just empty the jar and add the wet ingredients and bake.
