Make-ahead desserts? Freezing cookies?

I am hosting a big housewarming party this weekend and I'd love to make as much as possible in advance.

I'm looking for make-ahead dessert ideas. I'm resigned to having to make chocolate chip cookies because they're simple, but even those would need to be made in advance.

How long could I refrigerate the dough? Can I refrigerate formed dough balls?

Should I make the cookies in advance and freeze them instead?

Any other good make-ahead desserts?

I'm also thinking dip and pasta salad in marinades that "get better as they sit" -- open to ideas on those too.
