I want to make a large batch of sugar cookie dough tonight. I was hoping to save myself some work because I'm baking cookies in the morning for my sister. Then, I need to make more cookies on Friday to take to a party. Is four days too long to keep the dough? Thanks for any help you can give me.
I don't think it is a problem, I had mine in my fridge for about four days, and it was fine, I made it for a baby shower, and did not even get to take it, because I made two cakes, and all of the food, I did not get to decorate the cookies, I did bake them though, so my kids and I munched on them until they were all gone and we are fine, no illness.
Thank you for the help, Uniqueask! That will make things a lot easier and save me some time. Wow, sounds like you were incredibly busy getting ready for that shower! I'm impressed with everything you got done!
The only thing I would worry about is the dough drying out. You can keep it in the freezer just fine.
Roll it, cut it and put it in the freezer
Thank you, MichelleM77 and Verono! I'll definitely be using your advice, too!
