I've never had problems with cookies going stale on me.
But i bake one day let them cool then i store in cellophane bags and decorate the bags and usually deliver at the end of the week.
I've tried several tricks with my basic dough recipe,I've used Soy Flour on ocassion mixed with the AP flour and my reason for doing this is that soy flour in baked goods would allow your baked goods to stay even longer with out going stale.
I usually do several cookie recipes including an egg free one that was specially requested around the Holidays,cookies are so much fun but when I'm done my kitchen counters are covered with cookies on racks cooling and the cookie tims and bags. but hey it's good business.

jumbosgirl.....Yes, they will keep in the bags for a week and a lot longer.
I usually just put then in a big cake box after they are bagged and then they are ready for delivery.

Saborita,
Thank you. Your domo is a good idea. Inexpensive, but sturdy.

Bubblezmom,

Ideally, I start doing my Christmas cookie baking at the end of October. I usually make around 20 different varieties of cookies, so I try to split it up, doing a few recipes every weekend.

I store the cookies in individual Rubbermaid containers with waxed paper between the layers, and then store them in the freezer. If the cookie needs to be frosted or topped with powdered sugar, I leave it off and frost or sprinkle after the cookies are thawed and I'm ready to make the cookie platters. And I save my most delicate cookies for the last baking weekend so that they don't have to be frozen.

I also start shopping at Dollar Tree around October to catch the Christmas plates and containers as soon as they come in. I got the cutest Santa and Snowman plates last year for $1 each, which was great for making up my cookie platters. I make platters for my close neighbors, family, friends and the staff at my kids' school (about 15 platters in all), so it helps not to have to do it all at one time.

I hope that helps.

Thanks Lori! I don't have a deep freezer so I won't be able to bake that far in advance. 20 different types of cookies?! Wow! I'll be happy if I learn how to make those leaf-shaped cookies that have chocolate on one side. icon_razz.gif

I will try to remember to hit the dollar store early this year.

Hi Lori, I love baking for the holidays and I like to try different kinds of cookies, I really want to try to do the freezing method. Do you let your cookies come to room tempature before opening the container. And do all you cookies stay good until december? Would you share some of your recipes? icon_smile.gif
