Last week when I posted about the Easter Sugar Cookies I had made in advance, then planned to freeze until Easter, my inbox was flooded with questions about how I freeze cookies. My method is fairly simple.
I put a rigid piece of paper or board (here I used two white paper lunch sacks side by side...) in a freezer bag. The support ensures that the cookies will lay flat. Then, I put the cookies on top of the paper and zip up the bag, trying to get out as much air as possible.
Then I stack them and place them in a flat box in the freezer. To defrost, I just let them sit at room temperature for a couple of hours.
Does anyone else have any good freezer tips for cookies? I've never run into any problems like cracking icing as others described.
