I have 300 cookies coming up, and I have made the NFSC, rolled and cut them, and frozen the uncooked cutout cookies. When I go to bake them, should I bake them frozen or thaw them first? Also, these are not going to be bagged, so how do you store the cookies after baking to keep them fresh for a day or two?

I bake from frozen or semi-frozen....just plan to add a few extra minutes to your baking time, no problems. icon_smile.gif

As for staying fresh....these aren't soft, chewy cookies that will change radically after a day or so. These are meant to be semi-crisp sugar cookies anyway. I wouldn't worry about a day or two of exposure. thumbs_up.gif It's not going to make the cookies "unfresh" as they sit drying...that's assuming you are icing these as well?

I store them flat on cookie trays stacked on a kitchen rolling rack...but you can also lay them flat in Tupperware containers or pizza boxes. They should really be exposed to the air to dry evenly and completely though. I wouldn't box them up while the icing is still wet, you know?

JPmama when you cut them out how did you freeze. Do you put them between sheets of parchment? I always bake mine frozen, I find they hold their shape better. I find that if you seal them too much they get soft. so I would air dry thoroughly and the maybe in a tupper ware with the lid not air tight.

I cut out the cookies and layered them in tupperware containers w/ wax paper b/n each layer. I was thinking baking them frozen might help them keep their shape, and it sounds like it does. Thanks for the responses!

I bake mine frozen also. They really hold the shape well because of it.

When The cookies are dry, I cover them loosely with foil and leave them on the racks before I bag them.
