This week, we’re borrowing some time from our Sunday meal prep to sneak a few treats into our cookie jars and freezers. Follow our lead and load your freezer with your family’s traditional can’t-miss cookies. Be sure you make your to-do list now so you can relish in the satisfaction of crossing off your first project!
Cookies that are best suited for freezing are classic roll-out sugar, shortbreads, and other butter-and-flour cookies like chocolate chip or biscotti. Hold off on any meringue-based cookies, which won’t hold up as well.
For any cookies that will be glazed, chocolate-coated, or decorated, wait to do any finished until post-defrost. Royal icing, sugar glazes, and sprinkles won’t come out of the freezer looking as great as when they went in.
