...before I ice them? If I cool them completely and store them in a ziplock bag can I bake them a week before I ice them?

I personally would serve within two to three days of baking. You could bake a week ahead, but freeze until ready to decorate.
Just my two cents.

Hey guys,
How long can the cookies be frozen for? Baked or unbaked, or both?

HELP, I have 144 dozen cookies to complete for Halloween and 4 kids at home. I need to start preparing NOW! icon_lol.gif

I baked cookies for my nephew's graduation, froze them for 3 weeks. Thawed and iced and they tasted like they were baked that day.

I bake and freeze several weeks before I need the cookies (or cakes). Thaw and decorate and they taste like they were freshly baked.

I have also frozen the cookies for weeks, if not months,-- even those with fondant and they were just fine. I have frozen the dough for a while too-- not sure how long-- and then baked them. THey don't seem to be a problem.

How do you wrap them for freezing? With a layer of saran, then tin foil? If you stack them, do you put anything between the layers?

I LOVE this website! icon_biggrin.gif

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I will be baking the cookies this week, and freezing them for Halloween. Is there anything special that I need to do as far as packaging or thawing?

You all are so great! thumbs_up.gif
