When baking frozen cookie dough, you do not have to thaw the cookie dough. Simply place the frozen, pre-scooped cookie dough onto a baking sheet and bake for 2-3 minutes longer than the original recipe recommends. That’s it!
Store frozen cookie dough pucks in an airtight container. When you are ready to bake the frozen dough pucks, preheat your oven to 375°. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Bake the cookies whenever you want them! Preheat a regular oven or toaster oven to 350˚F. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Place frozen cookie dough balls about 2 inches apart on the sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown.
How to bake frozen cookie dough: You can either let the dough completely defrost overnight in the fridge or for a couple hours at room temperature and bake just as the recipe originally instructed. OR, if you’re impatient like me, you can bake from frozen.
In most cases, I prefer to freeze cookie dough over freezing baked cookies. That way, you still get the nice homemade smell and softness of the cookies when they come out of the oven. But if you want to get the whole job done, you can certainly bake the cookies, then freeze them later.
Freezing Cookie Cake or Cookie Bar Dough Then, chill for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Then, wrap up the cold dough tightly in plastic wrap. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Press dough into prepared cake pan and bake according to recipe’s instructions.
Oven Temperature Generally, cookies are baked in a moderate oven — 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) — for 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of the cookie. For chewy cookies, allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 3 to 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
Bake at 375 degrees F until golden and tender, 12 to 15 minutes. For crispy-cakey cookies: Bake the cookies at 425 degrees F until golden and crunchy on the outside, 8 to 10 minutes. For chewy cookies: Use 1 cup light brown sugar and 1/4 cup corn syrup and omit the granulated sugar.
Most bakers prefer to use the oven, as it helps the cookies stay moist without loosing crispiness. To reheat the cookies this way, place them on sheets and bake them at 300 degrees for about five to ten minutes.
After baking, allow cookies to cool completely. Place them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet to freeze them, then store them in a freezer-safe zip-top storage bag labeled with the name and date. Squeeze out extra air and place flat in the freezer. To save space, you can flat-stack freezer bags.
To thaw frozen cookies, take them out of the container in which they were stored and spread them out until they come to room temperature. From there, you can decorate them as needed, serve them, or, if necessary, refresh them in a 325º oven for 5 to 10 minutes.
Freezing is the best way to store cookies long term. Freezing a freshly baked cookie preserves that fresh flavor and texture so you can enjoy it any time. For best results, let your cookies cool completely, and then freeze right away.
Cookies retain their quality when stored in the freezer for eight to 12 months. Moist bars, such as cheesecake and lemon bars, can be refrigerated for seven days. For best quality, store bars in the freezer for two to three months.
Typically, drop cookies (including oatmeal cookies and chocolate chip cookies ) and cut-out cookies (such as sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies) freeze well. Delicate cookies, on the other hand, such as wafers and meringues, will not freeze well—so we recommend making those just before serving.
