I am hosting a baby shower for a coworker September 24. I am making the cake but I want to make onesie cookies as favors. I am going to attempt the No Fail Sugar Cookies but I want to make them this weekend and freeze them and do the finishing touches next week. Do these freeze ok and do they taste decent post thawing.

I have iced and frozen before. It does work and tastes OK. Sometimes when thawing the icing will smear or discolor in spots from the "sweating".
The best work-ahead would be to bake the cookies, freeze them, then thaw and do all the icing/decorating after they have come to room temp again.

I have a similar question,  I make fondant covered cookies,  should I cut them out, freeze unbaked, then bake frozen another day, then cover in fondant.  Want to do this on Monday=Tuesday and then bag them in cello bags and on Saturday serve them.  Will this work?

I always freeze my NFSC ahead of time--but at the unbaked stage.  I bake them straight from the freezer and they keep their shapes absolutely perfectly.  And no need to chill the dough before rolling and cutting the shapes!


Sugar cookies really last a long time, though, just packaged up and on the counter.  At least with royal icing, they do.  If you're using fondant the icing might get unpleasantly dry.

I just recently baked NFSC and froze them for about a month, undecorated. They tasted fine!
