Can I Freeze These Cookies?

You absolutely can freeze these cookies! In fact, it is a great recipe to do so because it makes over 60 individual servings. I like to make this much and then freeze some to pull out in a few weeks to surprise the kids.

When you freeze desserts, just make sure you leave them out at room temperature and allow them to thaw out on their own. They will taste delicious! Promise.
