cookie dough... how far in advance??

kseiverd | Nov 29, 201407:27 AM     1

Only have to "buy" gifts for young niece & nephew. Everybody else totally agrees that we're all at a stage in life where we don't NEED much of anything... short of one of us hitting the lottery. We do a nominal gift card exchange... that could potentially become "full contact", since we can steal from others.

I love making cookie "baskets" (or some other container). Nothing over the top or ornately decorated, but they start disappearing as soon as opened. In a perfect world, would have room in freezer to stash dough till baking starts. Well, my freezer is often a avalanche stage... no room.

How far in advance would YOU make cookie doughs to stash in big zip bags in FRIDGE?? Frankly, would probably ignore what "they" might say, if I thought differently!?! Would vac sealing and in fridge be better... longer advance time?
