Hello, Toronto Chowhounds,
Can anyone tell me how long homemade gingerbread cookie dough (wrapped in plastic and then aluminium foil) can be stored in the fridge? I made some on a Wednesday night and then kept it in the fridge until early the following Tuesday morning, after which, not having enough time to roll and bake it, I transferred it to the freezer in the same wrapping.
In addition to containing 3 cups flour, an egg and butter, I might add that there is a fair amount of spice in the dough - 2 teaspoons ground ginger, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon each nutmeg and cloves.
Do you think it will still be ok or should I toss it?
Thank you very much!
