Would it be alright to bake cookies on Friday, freeze until Tuesday (thaw) decorate half to pass out, and then REFREEZE the other half after I've decorated them?  They won't be passed out for another two weeks ... I'll be using NFSC with antonia's icing recipe ..

what is different in your recipe now that might modify the answers?

My question is now, that the cookies are going to be frozen before being decorated, then thawed and decorated early this week, and HALF of them need to be refrozen for another two weeks .. where as before I just baked, iced, and froze ..  So I was wondering if it's ok to freeze and thaw all the cookies, then re freeze half of them for a second time after being decorated.

They should be fine.  Just make sure they are sealed well.
