I read and see some people freeze cookie dough and place in fridge, so if this sounds stupid please excuse my lack of brains tonight... but once I cut them out place on a baking sheet can I place in fridge until morning to bake them?
Yes, that works fine. If you want to stack lots of them up to bake tomorrow, use two sheets of waxed paper between each layer.
Thanks for answering I am about to try it now.. I know 1045 at night ... crazy but then makes easier tomorrow!
I do it in advance too. My kids like to have their friends over to do cookies, and it helps limit the mess (well, a little bit) if I can make the dough and do the cutouts the night before. It also cuts down on kids munching the cookie dough.
thats a really good idea.... will keep that in mind when I have friends over to help make cookies for relay for life and such events
