I'm wondering if I can freeze baked (undecorated) cookies. I'm using Toba's Butter Cookie recipe. Does anyone know if I can do this, and if so, what's the best way to wrap them, how long can they be frozen, and how should they be thawed? Thanks so much!

I successfully freeze cookies all the time! I put them in zip-lock freezer bags, suck the air out with a straw, and then place in plastic containers. (The containers are to keep the cookies from getting crushed in the freezer when my kids or husband go looking for frozen pizzas!) They'll stay fresh for, easily, six months. When I want to decorate them, I take them out of the freezer before I head to work and put them in the fridge. When I get home from work, they're ready to go.

I freeze all my cookies, Becasue once defrosted for some reason to me they stay softer longer!

Yes! I agree, once defrosted they are softer and stay soft very nicely.

You guys are the bomb! A week ago I made my very first batch of cookies after taking a class at ICES from Deb Hennen. Now I want to bake about a zillion cookies so I can decorate far into the night. Freezing and defrosting in the fridge is the answer! Whoopee!
