I made cookies last week for my granddaughters birthday treat at school next Friday. I made them last week and froze then after they had cooled. Now I find I also I have to make cookies for a BBQ/pool party next Saturday. Can I thaw out my granddaughters decorate them and then refreeze them or will they be ok if I just decorate them, put them in their cellophane packages and then store in air tight container until next week.
I'm using Karen's meringue Buttercream for the BBQ/pool party cookies and know I will need most of the week so I can decorate them at the begining of the week so they set well enough to then box by Saturday. Any suggestions I would greatly appreciate. Thanks Lynda

I guess everyone is as much a loss on this question as I am. Sorry to have bothered anyone with such a meaningless question. Will figure it out myself. Thanks

I think the general concensus is for unfrozen cookies to last for at least 2 weeks. I'm not sure about the freezing and then refreezing. I've never done that. Maybe someone else will pitch in on that. But maybe you can take them out of the freezer a little closer to taking them to school and decorate them then. I know your busy with the others. Sorry - not much help I know

I remember learning in my sanitation class that if something has been frozen and then thawed, you should not refreeze it. Too much temperature change breeds bacteria.
