Help, please! How much success have you had with baking ahead cookies (basically NFSC)? How do you store/ freeze and for how long? How best to thaw to serve or give away (sweating/ running issues?)?
I need to get a jump on this and NOT be crazy (well, OK, not crazier than I am...lol) But I want them good....fresh tasting, etc.
freeze freeze freeze.. I have frozen cookies decorated and undecorated. I can't say that I remember freezing fondant covered ones though. I would think they would still work though.. just let them come to room temp and absorb. I might try a test run on that though. My naked and royal cookies get frozen and then I just pull them out, lay flat to defrost, and off I go. I have frozen for up to 4 months without problems...
I have had good luck freezing both naked and iced (royal icing) cookies. I personally would freeze them no longer than two months, so they keep their fresh taste. After a couple of months I find they get kind of a weird taste to them.
OK... so I guess I need to clean out the freezer, huh?
I just wanted to be sure I didn't miss some major detail like buttercream UNDER the fondant...lol.
And future suggestions also readily accepted! Thanks folks!
