Hi there,

I was wondering if I can make and freeze this dough ahead of time. If so, how long can I store it and what is the best way to go about it.

Thanks!!

Years ago my mother used to make this dough, roll it out on wax paper in small batches, layer each one between more wax paper, wrap all layers together in seran wrap and freeze them flat. She used to keep them on hand for when ever she wanted cookies. As long as it is wrapped good and tight it should stay good for a month or more.
HTH,
Polly
