My husband are what I call "cookie pigs"! If I make 30 cookies, we'll eat 30 cookies. Needless to say, we don't need 30 cookies. What I do now, since we came to our senses, is make a double batch of our favorite cookie recipe, bake a few for now, and put the others in the freezer.
I prepare them just as if I were going to bake them now and place closely together on a cookie sheet. After they're frozen very hard (I wait a night), I put them in a plastic container separated with waxed paper. Then when we want cookies, I can bake 4 (they're small!) and we have 4. Sure helps to control our eating but still allows us to have treats.
When you finish with a Pringles potato chip can, wash it out and store holiday cookies in them. They stand up well in the freezer.

They had store bought soft batch chocolate chip cookies on sale and I bought 2 bags. Can I freeze them in zip lock bags?
I do! I like the soft ones from Aldi frozen. If I am having a really bad day, I use the frozen cookies, a scoop of vanilla ice cream and make little ice cream sandwiches! Just don't leave them in there for more than a month or they really dry out. I using eat them pretty quickly!
PS, if you like mint Girl Scout cookies, try Aldi's chocolate mint cookies (frozen). They are AMAZING!!!
I freeze cookies all the time. Squeeze all the air out of the bag.
This should not be a problem if you want to take the larger bag of cookies and break them down into smaller bags to store in your freezer. I would not allow them to stay in the freezer for more than a month because they can dry out if stored there too long.
Yes, you can freeze your cookies! Make sure when using a freezer bag,press the access air out of bag(the air causes ice crystals!).
I just made ricotta cheese anise cookies. I cooled them for 4 hours and put them in food saver bags, but they still seemed a little moist. Should I freeze them or will they stay fresh for three days till Christmas eve? They are not frosted yet they are sealed in the food saver bags.
After they were cooled, I stored mine in plastic containers with each layer separated by a sheet of waxed paper.
Can the Nutter Butter cookie be frozen. And if so, how long?
