- Baking your cookies in a whoopie pie pan helps keep your cookies perfectly round and the thickness uniform through all your cookies.

After the cookies have frozen solid I toss them all into a ziploc bag. This is great because I’m able to grab out just what I need.
Common Questions About Baking Cookies
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about baking cookies.
Can cookie dough be frozen?
Yes! Almost all cookie dough can be frozen for up to 3 months. I can easily store them for 6 months if the dough has been wrapped well. I generally will freeze my cookie dough in the shape that I’m going to bake it in.
This is generally as drop cookies so I will drop my cookies onto a parchment lined backing sheet and freeze until solid. At this time I’ll pop them all into a ziploc bag. This allows you to pull out exactly what you need or easily do the hard prep in advance.
To bake cookies from a frozen state I will let them stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes before baking and adjust baking time by a minute or two.
Can I refrigerate my cookie dough?
Some recipes actually call for doing this to help it firm up and bake evenly. However, perhaps you get called away while baking cookies, you can just pop them into the fridge for up to 3 days. Make sure that the bowl is well covered so that it doesn’t take on the flavors of the fridge.
When you’re ready to bake your cookies allow your cookie dough to come to room temperature for about 15 minutes and bake as usual.
How long do baked cookies last at room temperature?
Not long in my house! Ok the truth baked cookies can last 2-3 weeks at room temperature. I always store my cookies in a ziploc bag or a tupperware container with a piece of bread to keep them soft. Those heels nobody wants to eat are perfect for this job.
