Elf Gets Organized-Day 3-Cookie Goodness

Most of us bake something special during the holidays.  I bake a lot of cookies.  Then, I give them out as I see people.  I should clarify, I bake a LOT of cookies.  It takes me a day or more, I got through a ton of supplies and the outcome is trays and trays of cookies.  (It’s an Italian tradition I learned from my husband’s grandmother called an Italian cookie tray.)

Anyway, I have learned that I just don’t have the uninterrupted time to bake all at once like I used to.  I really hated to give up this tradition so I started experimenting with freezing cookies.  Most cookies will freeze and defrost with no effect to the taste or constancy. If you’re unsure, try a few test cookies.

Day 3

If you start baking around Thanksgiving and then give the cookies out around Christmas, they won’t be frozen long enough for anyone to know 🙂  So, if you have some free time this weekend, or even on a week night, start baking!  Make a double batch and freeze some for friends and family to take home.

OR, host a cookie swap party! This is yet another task you can start now and not have to stress about at the last minute!  Happy baking!
