Hey I was wondering if anyone knew if you could freeze already baked NFSC? I have a bunch I want for the end of this month and begining of Nov. I don't want to be swamped with all the baking just prior to the events, so I thought if I could bake them and freeze them afterwards. If you have can you tell me what you did? Did any of them get soggy after defrosting them? I have frozen chocolate chip cookies and snickerdoodles and havent had a problem. Thanks for the help.

Yes, you can freeze them without a problem What I do is to put them in a tray and wrap the tray with foil and put them in 2 plastic bags. NOTE: I decorate them before to freeze them.

I have also frozen them...both ways (decorated/not decorated). I did the same....laid them out in a single layer then when frozen hard transfered them to freezer zip locks. Never had a problem with them! Good Luck!

P.S...I never used the foil.......just transfered them to the freezer bag when they were hard enough.

Foil? And how do you freeze them already decorated without the icing cracking when you defrost them?

Aluminum foil. to defrost them I just take them out of the freeze and live them like that for about 2 hours and after I take off all the bags and the aluminum foil and voila your cookies are ready. thumbs_up.gif

If your freezer is big enough ..... I laid the cookies on a large cake board, then wrapped the whole board in saran wrap. Put in freezer. Once the cookies are frozen, then they can be easily stacked on top of each other. To thaw, I just threw them on the counter, and unwrapped them when they were thawed.

I have a question I would like to ask too. I made cookies for the first time yesterday, and the dough was so had to kneed, at the end of it all I felt like my arms were gonna fall off icon_lol.gif . Is that normal? Also, it was very crummy at times. I used the recipe from this site. Can anyone help?

Thanks everyone. Glad to hear I can even decorate them and freeze them. I have two big bake sales coming up towards the end of the month. So if I do some here and there it will help and I wont be up all night the night before.
Do you could I stack them in like a beer flat with parchment paper in between? I do have a big freezer to do it that way.

Sounds like you had a bit too much flour.

indydebi, thats kinda what I thought, but since I had never done them I was unsure. By the way, they came out great. I can't really say that I liked working with royal icing, I found it very messy and hard to work with also.
