I have an order to do for delivery on thursday. How far in advance should I make these cookies and still have them nice and fresh. I need a couple days for decorating.

Toleshed, I like to put mine out within two days of baking, three at the most, if it's a long decorating process, I freeze some while I decorate the others.

Thanks shiney
Do you keep them in a sealed container between the baked time and delivered time?

I have done this as a trial to see how far in advance I can do this and they taste great for two weeks. I didn't push it any longer as I wouldn't want to anything sitting around longer than a week, but since I was doing a home trial I went another week. I have an order for a dozen cookies due friday. Baked thursday, decorated friday, and bagged saturday. I have also read that once they are sealed in a bag they last for longer than two weeks, not sure how long I read. Hope this helps you.

I have baked NFSC decorated them with Antonia74 RI and them pop them in the freezer up to 5 weeks in advance. You will have no problem with just doing them a few days in advance. I leave my cookies setting out for 2-3 days and they stay just as soft. If you ever need to freeze ahead of time just bake,decorate and let them dry for a day or two then layer them between wax paper in a tupperware container. To thaw set on counter leave in the container the condensation will go to the wax paper and the cookies will come out just fine!

I actually keep mine in airtight container almost all the time except when I'm decorating that cookie. After I flood, I leave them out for maybe an hour at the most, then back into the container they go. I have lots of containers! This may be why I don't get a shiney finish, huh?
