Thoughts on Freezing pre-baked Holiday Cookies

13 years ago

I wish I could get out of making these beautiful and delicious cookies. They are labor intensive. I've made them every year since this recipe came out and I'm often making these pinwheels into the night and ending up with a back ache; but they are worth it and everyone always wants them, so I limit to making only once a year.

Freezing the dough isn't even worth it because preparing it takes all but a few minutes. But I thought I'd try something else this year:

I would like to prepare all the pinwheels (without the jam, egg wash and sugar coat which I can do right before I bake). I thought that I would make the forms, lay them on a cookie sheet and freeze till set, then carefully place in a bag to freeze till ready for baking.

I would love to know what you think or if you have any better suggestions; also would I be compromising texture by doing this way? I have linked the recipe below. Thanks for help!
