I have been asked to make cookies for a fundraiser dinner for a friend of a friend. There will be about 100 people. I would like to mix the doughs this coming weekend, freeze it and then bake the next weekend.
I have never frozen baked cookies so not sure I want to try it at this time. Afraid they would get soggy when they thaw.
I am thinking about 12 dozen of the following kinds - Chocolate chip, Cinnamon Sticks, Lemon Shortbread, Chocolate Shortbread, Vanilla Shortbread and a Butter Sprinkle. These all freeze well, have not tried to freeze the Butter Sprinkle so will probably make that one the day of baking.
What I am wondering is if 12 dozen will be enough? And does anyone have any recipes that they have frozen successfully. I was going to make Anginettes but not sure if I will be able to frost them the night before they have to be delivered.
