...before I ice them? If I cool them completely and store them in a ziplock bag can I bake them a week before I ice them?
I personally would serve within two to three days of baking. You could bake a week ahead, but freeze until ready to decorate.
Just my two cents.
freeze them. they thaw in practically "minutes".
How long can the cookies be frozen for? Baked or unbaked, or both?
HELP, I have 144 dozen cookies to complete for Halloween and 4 kids at home. I need to start preparing NOW!
I baked cookies for my nephew's graduation, froze them for 3 weeks. Thawed and iced and they tasted like they were baked that day.
I bake and freeze several weeks before I need the cookies (or cakes). Thaw and decorate and they taste like they were freshly baked.
I have also frozen the cookies for weeks, if not months,-- even those with fondant and they were just fine. I have frozen the dough for a while too-- not sure how long-- and then baked them. THey don't seem to be a problem.
How do you wrap them for freezing? With a layer of saran, then tin foil? If you stack them, do you put anything between the layers?
I LOVE this website!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I will be baking the cookies this week, and freezing them for Halloween. Is there anything special that I need to do as far as packaging or thawing?
You all are so great!
