I go to a church with a large elderly population, so we frequently have members in the hospital. I take my children to visit these folks and would like to bring along homemade treats (NFSC w/ RI) Is it possible to make big batches of frosted cookies and freeze them?? Anyone have any luck with this??
My friends and family freeze my cookies all the time
They really do thaw well. I just make sure they are completely dry before putting in the freezer in either a plastic baggie or tupperwear. I prefer the baggie to tupperwear but I am literally eating a cookie right out of the freezer that I had in tightly sealed tupperwear and it tastes fresh (see - I wanted to make sure it was safe.... for the people at your hospital... yeah I had to eat it for you).
I use meringue powder vs egg whites in my royal icing.
I do it all the time, too. Just make sure that you keep them sealed air-tight when defrosting, because otherwise moisture condenses on the RI, which can have some nasty effects, like running colors.
