After I bake cookies I let them cool on the pan for 3-5 minutes then move them to a plate.

However I have noticed the next day the cookies on the bottom stick to the plate, then break into small pieces if I try to remove them.

What should I do different so the bottom cookies do not stick to the plate?

you need to let them cool completely on a wire rack before moving them to a plate or sealed container.

This will prevent the starch on the bottoms from steaming onto the plate.
