Can you make batches of sugar cookies, decorate with royal icing and then freeze the cookies? How long can you freeze the cookies before the quality of the cookie suffers? What will the icing do as it thaws? I really would appreciate any information y'all can give! Thanks!
I do freeze my NFSC that are decorated with Antonias RI and they taste great after they thaw! I layer them between wax paper after they are completely dry in a tupperware container and when I need them I just leave the container on the counter to thaw. Don't open it or remove them before they are thaw; the condensation goes to the paper.
Are your thawed cookies for sale?
I just mailed some to Iowa I'm sure they can be mailed directly to you
Yes, I do sell these most with my birthday and shower cakes. And I usually make a ton so I have to freeze them!
LOL!!!My poor English makes me sound stupid sometimes because I can't find the correct way to express my thoughts. I was wondering if you had a large order for cookies you could bake, ice ,freeze in advance to make things easier.And you just answered that it can be done. Thanks.
I thought you just wanted some pure goodness omicake !
I find that the cookies are a perfect soft texture after freezing. And I get tons of compliments on them!
You are right.
Pure goodness as well !!! LOL !!!
How long do they usually need to thaw for?
I always freeze my Christmas cookies and they thaw beautifully and taste super fresh and delicious. They never last more than a couple weeks past the holidays so I can't comment on how long in the freezer they'll keep for. I usually layer mine with foil, just 'cause that's what I've got laying around. I wonder if wax paper is cheaper.....they thaw rather quickly. Can't say for sure, though. An hour maybe, if they're not all stacked up on top of each other.
I ditto what mgigglin/kim said - they are a softer texture after freezing - which I like better than when "fresh".
