I have wax paper, and large double seal freezer bags, but no air tight containers. How would I freeze them, They are already baked, and I dont want to decorate them yet (they are practice cookies that i can just grab when I want)

I start with wax paper, then tin foil to really seal them and then into zip lock bags and have never had a problem.

You can make your baggies pretty much air tight but squeezing the air out but closing the bag and leaving just a little opening and then squeezing out the excess air and then closing the baggie up. I've seen people actually suck the air out of the small gap you leave in the opening but I just haven't had the nerve to try that! It just seems so unsanitary to me!

use a straw to suck the last bit of air out.

I just slap 'em in a ziplok and throw 'em in the freezer. I don't double wrap or anything. Ziploks are the greatest invention since double cheese on pizza!

Yummm....pizza!

I do the straw thing, too. I only use containers if I'm afraid my husband or kids will be rummaging thru the freezer. (Not that I don't trust them...okay...I just don't trust them!)

I wrap a stack of cookies together, no need to wrap individually
