With all the holiday cookies around the house and office, I thought a little primer on how to put some of the dough away for another time, rather than making 6 dozen cookies, would be quite useful!
Most cookie doughs will freeze well for 4 to 6 weeks. Dough should be rolled out and sealed tightly in plastic wrap (chill in fridge before freezing).
Types of dough that are not sliced from a chilled log should be stored in airtight containers. Drop cookies (unbaked) may be frozen on cookie sheets and transferred to freezer bags. Let stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes before baking.
