Hey there. I was just wondering whether you can freeze cooked cookies/biscuits the same way you can freeze cakes and muffins etc. I made some bran biscuits but as im living in a flat and no one else likes them, I want to freeze them as I cant eat them quick enough. I've never heard of someone freezing cookies so im not sure it would work?

since it's only my husband and myself these days - I freeze all baking - works just fine - if I'm going to freeze a cake type thing - I cut into individual pieces first - that goes for pies - cookies are too easy -

yes you can, but when you take them out and defrost what you are going to eat, you need to eat them right away as they will harden very quickly. In the future, what you may want to do is just make enough cookies for you to eat then, and put the rest of the dough in the freezer in individual bags that you can take out and make just the right amount for you when you want some. The major work would already have been done, and all you need to do is bake them then.

I freeze cookie dough but not already baked cookies.

This. I find dough freezes much better than finished goods.

I freeze them all the time, no worries. I have some frozen right now. I wait until they cool then put them in an airtight container. I then put that in a store plastic bag (just for insurance). I freeze for weeks. I've had the ones in my freezer for 2 weeks. They are going to be mailed out today. Last week, when I did the same thing, they arrived wonderfully chewy (I intended that via recipe). I didn't ruin the integrity of cookies at all. Never fails. When you eat, you want to make sure you let it come to room temperature. My partner is less patient so she sticks them in the microwave for a few seconds. Either way, they come out perfect.

my mom freezes cookies all the time! when she wants one, she takes it out of the freezer, briefly warms it up/thaws it in the microwave, and eats it that way. usually with her coffee after dinner. i've frozen cookies and taken the whole bag out to thaw and then eaten them. they sometimes dry out a little, but not enough to ruin them!

Freezing cookies works great. I do it every year when I bake for Christmas.

It might depend on the kind as there is such variety among cookies, but most baked goods freeze very well as a rule. Most breads, whether whole loafs or slices or whatever, too.

My grandma kept lemon cookies and sugar cookies in the freezer for us kids when we visited. To this day, I've never had a better sugar cookie than hers, eaten still frozen. And her lemon cookies were legend - and the recipe was lost when she moved into a home and we sold her house. Boo hoo!
