How long will the cookies stay fresh for? Can I bake and freeze them ahead of time and decorate just before I need them?

Or if I pull them from the oven and do my decorating, how long after I pull them out generally will they stay "fresh"?
Thanks again!

Heres a link to others answers to this question - HTH!!
Hope you can find the anwser you need!
I usually bake mine 3 days ahead - first day bake and flood - 2nd day to decorate and 3rd day to bag.
As far as freezing goes, you can freeze naked or decorated and on this thread you will find the answer to how long everyone recommends ... Happy Baking!

I think I am going to make and decorate and freeze my cookies 2 weeks ahead of time. Not only do I have an ambitious cake to make, but I will be 26 weeks pregnant the day of the birthday party and I don't want to wear myself out! LOL.

I learned in that thread to thaw the cookies in the same container you freeze them in so they don't sweat. I hope it works! I do have red and black on my cookies....
Hmmmmmmm. Well, I'm at least going to bake the cookies ahead of time :p
