I want to make a batch of lactation cookies but not sure whether it's best to freeze the dough and then bake cookies as I want them, or to bake all the cookies and freeze them. What's better in your experience?

I have done both with cookies and they were fine. I suppose it depends on when you want to do the baking, all at once or in several batches.

Yep either works well. I often freeze the biscuits and grab them for lunches etc as I need them. That way you don't have to much around cooking them each time you want some.

I've always cooked them up and then frozen them. They've always tasted the same to me once thawed.

*Bump*

Question about this.... does freezing the dough affect the brewers yeast at all? I wondered if the yeast would not be active if frozen?

Or could you add the yeast once thawed and ready to be made into cookies?

How do you freeze the dough? Just in a container or plastic bag?

Showing my baking ignorance here!!!!

Don't have a clue about the yeast ... The LCs still worked last time even from frozen mix ...

Freezing them - I roll them into a tube shape, wrap that in gladwrap or baking paper then wrap it in tin foil.
