I have to make a real large order of cookies for my daughter's school. In the past I have only made small batchs of cookies, max being 80. I make the NFSC recipe, one batch at a time. If I try to double the quantity, I noticed that the shapes don't hold well inspite of freezing them. Can someone give me a recipe for a large batch of sugar cookie and approximately how many cookies out of a batch (3" flags). Heeeelp, I don't think I can do it without all your help.
Also can I freeze them after I bake them or it is best to freeze the shapes before baking.

i freeze the NFSC after baking them with no problems. I have also read that people have frozen them decorated with no problem.

I have not doubled the batch since I do not have enough time to do that many, but just whip up another batch since they mix up so fast.

I would definitely just bake and then freeze them. You can put them in freezer bags, or plastic containers. They freeze really well!

Thank you both. I will do that bake and freeze. How long do they take to thaw. Can I leave them out overnight and decorate the next day?
