Anyone making plans for Christmas baking yet?

I really can't believe that Oct. will soon be over. It's time to start making plans for Thanksgiving and Christmas....and that means baking!!

I'm really happy that we have a freezer downstairs so that I can bake ahead of time this year and freeze the stuff.

I know that I'm a bit ahead of schedule yet but is anyone thinking of baking yet?

Christmas baking

I have thought about Christmas baking. I would like to find a website that shows what you can freeze and for how long.

I had this saved:


**Freeze cookie dough for up to a year in airtight freezer bags or foil. Drop cookies (unbaked) may be frozen on cookie sheets and transferred to freezer bags; let stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes before baking.





**If freezing frosted cookies, freeze them individually on an uncovered tray or baking sheet, then transfer to labeled freezer bags. Baked cookies may be kept frozen for 4 to 6 months.


I have always made my iced oatmeal raisin cookies and froze them in freezer bags like they say in the above directions. I've never had any problems.

I think that Im going to make up some cookie dough ahead of time this year--like choc. chip--to keep in the freezer when my family wants fresh-baked cookies.


Need more info. on certain items? Just let me know.


Tami

I'm in the thinking and gathering ingredients stage. There are some cookies that I only make once a year and the budget can't take buy all of the stuff I need at one time. My goal is to have all of the ingredients purchased by Thanksgiving so I can get started baking the weekend after.

Baking for Christmas

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I LOVE to bake. but I usually find myself baking at the last minute. I always wanted to back ahead, but only have a standard freezer with the usual suspects in it (quick meals for hectic nights) so it is pretty full.

Although I've never tried to freeze them, I love to make biscotti in several different flavors, and give a platter to a hostess for a holiday gathering. They are simple to make and only have to be baked twice, so it's like a big cookie that makes a bunch of little ones... lmbo. I'm not sure you can freeze the 'crispy' cookies.

I knew about the cookies and freezing, and I know that most cakes can be frozen as long as they are not frosted, but not too much else about it. I am sure that verybestbaking.com would have a list of goodies that you can make and freeze.

PLEASE keep me in the loop on this. I am making "quillings" this year for gifts (paper flowers that you place on wedding invitations is the best example I can think of) and it takes a lot of time to complete - so anything that will save time... I'm ALL IN!

Have an AWESOME day!

Karen---I have froze cookie dough, with no problems.

I haven't started baking yet, but I am in the planning stage. What am I going to bake, and what ingredients I'll need, etc.

I know the time is going to go fast. I always say I'm going to start sooner. LOL
