You probably could, but then you'd run into a problem with baking pan size and baking time as a result. Sugar cookies freeze quite well, though, either baked or as dough, if wrapped well. So why not go ahead and make the full recipe, and freeze half for later?

Good idea! Thanks for your quick reply.

Hi Jane! Yes, the ingredients can be halved but you should bake in a smaller dish. An 8x8 baking dish would probably work nicely. My other suggestion would be to make the recipe in full and, once it's baked and cooled, cut the sheet of cookie in half. You can use one half now and wrap the other tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for later! Happy baking!
