Hi all, I bake for the military in my spare time. I have a friend who helps and we crank out the cookies. Right now we are getting 2500 Easter cookies ready for an AF (air force) base in TX.
My question is: is it ok to freeze after baking and again after decorating? Does this affect how long the cookies will be fresh? I ship flat rate, and it's usually 3 days, but I'd like to ship overseas and that can take 8-21 days.
Doing large volume as we do, it kills us to do 4 days of 8-12 hour sessions to get 1000-1500 cookies finished. We're looking for a better way to do large volume. 300-400 a day, one day a week over several weeks would be heaven!
Here are some of what I've sent. My Facebook page is Homemade for Heroes if you want to check me out. I never sell to our military. It is my way of saying thank you and sending them a small bite of home.
