Did you bake too many cookies? Instead of throwing away the cookies you are not going to eat, freeze them. It is possible to freeze cookies while preserving their freshness and delicious taste. Here is how you can freeze cookies.
There are different ways to freeze cookies. The best way to preserve the freshness of the cookies is to freeze the cookie dough before you bake it. You can wrap raw cookie dough in wax paper and place it in the freezer. Take it out of the freezer when you are ready to bake more cookie and wait for the cookie dough to unthaw.
You can also freeze individual cookies once they have been baked. This is not the best way to preserve the freshness of the cookies since they will not taste like fresh-baked cookies, but you can put them in the oven for thirty to forty seconds to warm them up and improve the taste.
You can freeze cookies that have already been baked as long as you can wrap them tightly. You can use wax paper or even small plastic bags that can be hermetically sealed. The cookies will taste better if there is no air when you wrap them.
Ideally, you should freeze cookies while they are still fresh. If you wait long enough for the cookies to get a little stale, you will notice a difference when you unthaw them. Try freezing the cookies within a few hours of baking them if you realize you have made too many.
If possible, wrap the cookies individually. This will let less air in and the cookies will stay fresher. This is a method that takes time, especially if you baked a lot of cookies. If you need to freeze a lot of cookies, the best way to do it is to place them on a sheet of wax paper and cover them with another sheet before sealing.
If you often make cookies and need to freeze them, you should consider purchasing a vacuum sealer. These machines can be used to package food with vacuum sealed plastic. You can use one of these machines to vacuum seal your cookies, and they will stay fresh regardless of how many cookies you place in a bag.
Your cookies should stay good for at least a month or two in your freezer. They should stay good for longer if you decide to invest in a vacuum sealer since the cookies will be frozen with absolutely no air in the bag. If the cookies look like they have frost on them or do not taste good once you unthaw them, it is best not to eat them.
You will figure out the best way to freeze cookies by trying out a few things. Remember that it is easier to freeze raw cookie dough if you made too much. If you need to freeze cookies that have already been baked, wrap them up as tightly as possible. Put them in the oven for a few seconds to give them a fresher taste.
