Thawing frozen cookies is super easy. Simply take them out of the plastic wrap and place them on a plate on the kitchen counter. It may take several hours for the cookies to become soft. To speed things up, you can microwave each cookie for about 30 seconds on full power.
When baking frozen cookie dough, you do not need to thaw the cookie dough. Simply place the pre-poured cookie dough on a baking sheet and bake for 2-3 minutes longer than recommended in the original recipe.
If you have the time, you can always thaw frozen cookie dough for 24 hours in the fridge, then bake it exactly as directed. But if you want to bake frozen cookie dough right away (while it’s still frozen), just place the cookie dough on the counter while your oven heats up.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the frozen cookie dough balls on the sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 15 minutes.
To thaw frozen cookies, remove them from the container they were stored in and lay them out until they reach room temperature. From there you can decorate them as needed, serve them or, if necessary, refresh them in the oven for 325-5 to 10 minutes.
Linzer cookies freeze well when sealed in an airtight container. For the most delicious cookie, freeze it before spreading it with jam.
Editor: Jen, you’d probably vote for cookie dough, because it’s nothing more than a really freshly baked cookie. But we recommend that you take the dough out and freeze it firmly on the cookies, then seal the frozen pieces in bags for longer storage.
Oven Temperature Cookies are usually baked in a moderate oven – 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) – 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of the cookie. For chewed cookies, let them cool in the baking sheet for 3-5 minutes before transferring them to the cooling rack.
Bake at 375 degrees F until golden and crispy on the outside and chew on the inside for 10-12 minutes. For super fluffy cookies: Replace cake flour with all-purpose flour.
Place cookies in an airtight container. Use a shallower plate and only have 3-4 layers of cookies. This helps prevent breakage. You can also use a zippered freezer bag, but I think you tend to break more because the cookies can move around more.
Baked cookies: Do not refrigerate cookies unless they contain whipped cream or sour cream. They will age much faster and lose quality quickly if stored in the refrigerator. Some fresh and organic brands require refrigeration.
Freezing baked cookies is a super easy way to get ahead when it comes to getting ready for holidays, get-togethers, and everything in between. After baking the cookies, let them cool completely. Once cooled, place in a Glad® freezer with a patented gallon bag.
Most bakers prefer to use the oven because it helps the cookies stay moist without losing their crunch. To heat the cookies this way, place them on baking sheets and bake at 300 degrees for about five to ten minutes.
Regularly Frozen Old Cookie Dough If you store it in your refrigerator, you can usually expect this cookie dough to last about 1-2 weeks past the expiration date. In your freezer, frozen raw cookie dough can actually last 9-12 months, giving you plenty of time to use it before it breaks down.
