Question about freezing cookies

juliejulez | Dec 19, 2012 07:12 AM

So I ended up with a snow day from work today, and it really would be the perfect day to spend baking all my holiday cookies. The thing is, I don't need the cookies until Monday, so if I bake today, they might be a little stale by then. My original plan was to get all the doughs ready throughout the week and then bake on the weekend.

So, my question is, I know you can freeze cookies, but will it make the consistency less good if I bake them today then freeze? Should I just wait to bake them on the weekend as originally planned? I'm planning on making gingerbread cutouts, peanut blossoms, and chocolate crinkles. The cutouts would be especially nice to have ready ahead of time to decorate this weekend since rolling and cutting is so time consuming.
