I generally freeze sugar cookies for decorating later. Molasses sugar cookies and peanut butter cookies freeze very well, too.

I freeze cookie DOUGH, not baked cookies. Most doughs freeze well. I shape it into balls (smaller than golf balls), freeze on a cookie sheet. When they are fully frozen I put them in freezer bags, a dozen per bag. I write the bake time & temp on the bag--add a minute or 2 if you don't thaw the dough first.

How about Banana Bread or Brownies?

Are they sticky / mushy when defrosted?

I haven't tried banana bread but with brownies, I just slice them to size, put them in sandwich bags and put all the bags in a big Ziplock. They thaw in an hour or 2 and taste fine. I don't think it would work as well if you frost the brownies, though

I've froze bananna bread before as a loaf and muffins with good results. They are a little sticky but if you let them air out a bit they do tend to dry up.
