Anyone know how long you can leave this refrigerated before baking? I just found some thats been in my frig for almost 10 days. My frig is very cold so ts hard as a brick - feels like its been in the freezer. Could it ne safe to use?
Smell it...does it still smell sweet and buttery? Then it's good. If it smells kind of rancid, it's bad. Sorry I can't tell you more than that. You are probably fine, though.
I've had cookie dough stay fresh in the fridge for a week before. You should be good. Just let it come to room temp (it will probably take about 1-2 hours). NFSC dough is very good, but it does get really hard after chilling, especially after pro-longed chilling. As long as it doesn't smell bad or taste bad (taste a tiny piece) you should be fine.
sambugjoebear, do you have to have the dough at room temp to bake it? Well, I know you can bake it anyway, but is it better to do it that way? Does it spread less?
When I practice, I keep about six rolled out slabs of dough between parchment only in the refrigerator for about 10 days. I don't really mean for them to be eaten, but we eat every one and they are just as good. But I would't sell them.
careylynn~ It's best if the dough is still a little chilled when you work with it. I just usually forget to take it out soon enough and it gets too hard to work with, then let it sit on the counter and forget about it. LOL When it comes to room temp it really doesn't spread that much in the oven, but there's even less spreading when it's chilled.
Thank you all for your posts. It smelled good so I baked it and they were good. I just made them for us around the house, not a client. I didn't want to throw it away if I didn't have to.
