how far in advance can i decorate cookie for wedding favors. i know a sugar cookie recipe that i can make up to a month in advance and freeze the dough. but how long will the cookies last once they are decorated?

Not a cookie expert, but I think that depends on the kind of cookies you are making, and the icing.
I made peanut butter cookies (found here on CC) with RI over a month ago, and have just eaten the last. Holds fine if you store them in an airtight container.
Good luck.

You can freeze a decorated with royal icing sugar cookie-well wrapped for up to 3months. Thaw in container on counter. I personally wouldnt keep them that long esp for a paying customer, but that is the general guideline for frozen baked goods. I recently took some cookies out of the freezer from Easter and my kids ate them and they were good.

I use a basic cookie recipe (essentially the NFSC recipe) and a modified royal icing (Antonia74's). Without freezing, I try not to go more than 5-7 days from baking to consumption.

This is what I go with, too.

I am making NFSC covered with MMF for a June 18 wedding. I am baking today and decorating the rest of the week. Then into the freezer they go. I have frozen this type of cookie many times, up to three weeks, and they are as good when they came out of the freezer as when they went in icon_smile.gif

Once you unfreeze them, you have about 5 days. And then then they need to be eaten!
