I have overbooked for a date and need to start early in order to have everything finished in time.
I need to make 120 cookie favors which will be placed in clear boxes.
If I make them now and place in an airtight container for 1 month seperated by baking paper ( I think parchment paper American term) will they be okay to defrost and then box a couple days before the event?
I have read that it is okay but was wondering if anyone ever uses this method in a time of crisis icon_cry.gif

Hi,

Are you talking about sugar cookies? If so, I freeze them all the time... only I don't use parchment paper to layer them I use wax paper. I will bake and decorate them let them dry completely for a day or so then layer them between the wax paper. I have had mine in the freezer for a month with no problem. When you want to thaw them, just leave them in the container for the afternoon and they will thaw. The condensation will go to the wax paper and they will be perfect for you to wrap.

HTH,

Kim

mgigglin, is there something about waxpaper that absorbs the condensation??? I use parcment paper between layers in freezer on naked cookies, but haven't tried freezing multi layers of decorated, but will this week. So wondering if I should use waxpaper instead.
