My DD's birthday is in 8 days. I'd really like to make the cookie favors today when I actually have time to do it. Will they get stale if I make them this far in advance? Can I freeze them after I ice them with the royal icing? Or will that ruin them? What does everyone else do in this situation?
Thanks!!

Yes, you can freeze them. Just put wax paper or parchment paper between each layer, then put them in tupperware. When I take mine out of the freezer I spread them out on the counter to thaw. HTH.

I freeze my NFSC all the time! In fact, I almost plan that I will pop them in the freezer. I also layer them on wax paper in my tupperware, but to defrost them, I leave them in the container so all the condensation goes to the paper and not the icing. Oh and they even come out softer! Just make sure that you let your RI dry completely before stacking them. I usually wait a full day before putting them in the container.


HTH,

Yes, you can freeze them completely done! I always let them dry overnight. I usually use the RI and Tobas glaze. Also, you can go ahead and bag and tie them if you'd like. I do this and then put them on a cookie sheet and wrap with saran. HTh

This is good to know when time is short.
