Freezing Cookies

I find that it helps to be able to bake when I can and freeze my cookies.
That way they are always fresh when I give them as gifts or serve them to my
guests.
Here are a few hints that I have found. You can either freeze your raw
cookie dough or the baked cookies.
I have found that most dough like the standard cookies, chocolate chip,
peanut butter, shortbreads, sugar cookies freeze well. If you freeze the
dough be
sure to wrap them very well, so they don’ t pick up any odors from other
foods in your freezer. I generally wrap it in saran wrap and put it in a
ziplock
freezer bag and store that in an airtight plastic container. This extra
protection, will help keep it from getting freezer burn. I suggest only
keeping
the dough for a month. Longer than that, I am not sure how good it would be.
You can thaw the dough in your refrigerator.
I usually freeze my cookie after I have baked them. Always make sure they
have cooled completely. I wrap them in saran wrap well and place them in an
airtight
container. Always put crisp cookies together and soft cookies together.
Don’t put them together in the same container.
When I plate them, to give as gifts, I always wrap the soft ones so they
don’t make the other soft.

Handmade Gifts from the Heart

This is a wonderful gift to give to your friends during the holidays. My
girlfriend gave me this recipe. Hers were always picture perfect. I haven’t
mastered
how to roll them so I don’t have all my nuts globed in the middle. They
still taste good, they just don’t look like the pictures you always see.
How do
they do that?

Nut Roll

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
4 eggs
1 package yeast
1/4 cup warm water
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons salt

Cream sugar and butter together. Add eggs one at a time Dissolve 1 yeast in
1/4 cup warm water and add to creamed mixture. Sift 4 cups flour and 2
teaspoons
salt together. Add to mixture and mix. Place in greased bowl, cover and
refrigerate overnight.

Nut filling

4 cups chopped pecans or walnuts
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 stick of melted butter
2 eggs, beaten

Mix all filling ingredients together.

Split your dough in half. Roll into a rectangle, spread half of the nut
filling on and roll up from the long side. Repeat with second dough roll.
Seal
edges, cover with towel and place in warm spot until dough rises.
Approximately an hour.
Bake for 45 minutes at 350 º. Brush with melted butter if desired the last
fifteen minutes before roll is done
