How long do homemade crackers keep when stored in an airtight container? I made the Parmesan crackers (butter, flour, freshly grated Parmesan) from the Essential NYT Cookbook last night and am wondering how long they could last if I made another batch to have on hand. This is my first go with homemade crackers, so I'd appreciate any advice!

We've debated this at food52 and the consensus is that they'd last for a while, at least 2 weeks. Not sure where you live but if it's humid, you may need to re-toast them in the oven. Otherwise, they should stay fairly crisp because they're essentially a savory sable cookie.

I make a cracker similar to this for canapes and I do make them ahead of time and seal in an airtight container and pop into a 350F oven for just a minute before serving.
