I was just wondering if anyone has insight as to how long bakes cookies will last if left unfrozen?
I have to make a lot of them, and I started baking and even froze a bit but now ive just read that freezing cookies dries them out and makes them taste bad. Im so confused, please help!
These cookies are going to be wedding favours and I dont want to give out bad tasting cookies
First of all let me say that I freeze everything. I freeze my cakes after I bake them.. I just leave them in there for a few days but it helps me ice them as well as the flavor... I don't know but it helps!!
I freeze undecorated and decorated cookies all the time as well. I would not worry about freezing them at all. Everyone is going to have their own opinion though on this.
I will have cookies out for 4 days sometimes.. allowing them to air dry and then once I start putting royal on them. Doesn't seem to affect my orders at all.
I use a "5 day rule" (I like to have less than 5 days form making the dough to the time they'll be eaten), but I know others have said the cookies are good for much longer. During that r days, unless I'm actually working on teh cookies, I don't leave them totally out in the open air, though.
here are links to some threads about freshness and freezing, in case that helps...
