Hey ladies,
I just had a friend ask me about freezing dough. I'm more of a caker...mostly do cookies at the holidays and that is all, so I told her I would post on her to see what you guys had to say ?

Can you freeze all dough? Are there some cookie doughs that freeze better ?

Thanks !

I freeze most doughs.
The easiest thing to do for drop cookies is to freeze the dough in cylinders so that you just need to slice and bake!
Roll out doughs can freeze nicely in discs.

I freeze cookie dough all the time. For sugar cookies, I cut, freeze then bake frozen. I freeze my dough for up to 3 weeks. Hope this helps.

Can I ask a question in here that pertains, too, please? Can you bake the cookies, then freeze them?

Another idea that I do is go ahead and scoop the dough into dough balls thn freeze the dough balls. I put them on a cookie sheet in the freezer, then when they are firm enough, I transfer them to a deep container (wax paper between layers). Those disposable aluminum pans that come with lids are great for this.

When ready for nice warm cookies, just grab 12 out of the freezer and throw them in the oven. Great for last minute orders, too.

another plus is when someone orders a dozen cookies, but they want 4 choc chip, 5 snickerdoodles and 3 peanut butter. Just grab what you need from the freezer and in 15 minutes, the order is ready to go. thumbs_up.gif
