Hi everyone

Does anyone know.....

Every year I make my Xmas cookies in mid December. I would love to get a head start this year.

I know chocolate chip & sugar cookie dough can be frozen ahead of time.

BUT, can cookie dough that has:
-sour cream,
-ricotta cheese,
-buttermilk
-or other dairy items

be made ahead of time and frozen until I'm ready to bake?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks much

Rox

While I have no idea as to the answer...it would never hurt to try. In the very least, make small batches and try it out. If it dont work, you know for next year.

With that said...many milk products freeze and thaw with no problems. We often freeze whole liters of milk at our cottage and thaw them and open them up a few months later. The date will be off on the carton but the milk is fresh because it was frozen.

Well, I'm probably going to be no help at all here, but there is way really good way to answer this question... try it! thumbs_up.gif I cannot think of an obvious reason that any of those could not be frozen, but I don't know everything, so it's possible there is a reason not to do it! icon_rolleyes.gif How's that for some logic!

Thank you.

I knew I could freeze milk, I do it all the time also.
But wasnt sure about sour cream or ricotta cheese.

I'll give it a try and let you know how it turns out. icon_smile.gif
