I need to make a batch of cookies for a birtday party but I am also making the cake, so I wanted to get something out of the way. Can you freeze cookies after you have covered them in fondant?
I am worried about the fondant getting wet and sticky once it thaws out.
I do it all the time, even with edible images on them. If you are going to bag them, you can, then just layer them in a plastic container and freeze. If you are not going to bag them, layer them between wax paper.
To defrost, just set them on the counter for a few hours, keeping the container closed. I usually take mine out the night before I need them.
I have kept them as long as three weeks, then traveled from MI to FL with them. They tasted as fresh as the day I put them in the freezer.
