For those who make cookies and fudge every year for the Holidays, how far in advance do you make them? How do you store it? fridge? freezer? How long can they be stored and still be good? I want to make a variety of cookies, rugelach, and fudge for Christmas. I usually just do cookies and at the last minute, but I'm looking for ways to do things in a less stressful manner this year. I have time this week, but I'm not sure if it's too soon. Then again I'm always hearing people talk about making their cookies way in advance and I always wondered how this is done.

Thanks!

I do a bake sale in Nov. and I make my things staring in Oct. I freeze my candy after I cut it in to pieces and make ref cookies that you can freeze and then slice and bake or for drop cookies freeze the doughg. I usually bake my cookies about the week before my sale and freeze them in packages to sell.

Thanks for the reply. Can you be a little more specific? I'm interested in details as to how this is done. How do you wrap it up so it doesn't get freezer burn, etc. I don't freeze many things. Just the occasional meat sealed with a foodsaver and of course ice cream. Any advice is appreciated.

Anyone else have a way you do it?

Thanks in advance.

I will freeze cookie dough, usually in log form... or baked cookies just in tupperware, ziploc bags or the sort. I know i've done well over a month in advance... never any freezer burn on the cookies.

I know in the past, i've had baked cookies in my freezer for a few months [ outta sight, outta mind ] and never any burn on them.

For the holiday, we usually bake the first week of Dec, or when ever it's so cold there is nothing else to do... so up to 4 weeks in advance.
