      Hi Lynne,
      Freezing the actual dough and then baking as needed may be a better method, but you can still freeze the baked cookies with good results. They should be frozen individually after they’ve cooled completely (placed on a baking sheet, not touching, until frozen solid) and then placed in a freezer safe container. When thawing baked cookies, take them out of the containers and let sit at room temperature so that condensation doesn’t form and make them soggy. You can reheat frozen or thawed cookies by placing them in a 275°F oven for approximately 10 minutes.
