Brand new here so don't know if I am in the right forum for this. I happened upon this site when Googling about my question. Baking Christmas cookies is one of my favorite joys in life. However it is so time and labor intensive that I started to freeze my doughs ahead of time and then bake within a few weeks of Christmas. Since doughs can be frozen up to 6 months, I actually considered starting my doughs in June. I'm not sure if it's my imagination or factual but I think I can taste a definite difference between frozen dough cookies and fresh dough cookies. This past Christmas I just made the doughs and baked immediately and I think the cookies tasted infinitely better - unfortunately. While I'd love to give in to the more organized side of me, I don't want to do it at the expense of the flavor of my Christmas cookies. I'd love hearing from others to see if you can taste the difference between frozen-dough cookies and fresh dough cookies. Of course I'm hoping to hear there is no difference, ha ha, but I will definitely defer to the opinion of those here, whatever it is. Thanks!
