Hey Jes.. I just made the Cherry bon bons that mbpbrighteyes shared in the file and she says they freeze wonderful! They were yummy to ! ( in my photos) I put about 1/2 in the freezer to. I freeze just about everything I think I can ! Fudge, cookies, pb balls , whenI try any new recipe I always put part in the freezer to see how it does then I know for when I reallY need to make it if I can make ahead and freeze.

Jes, Ive read in several cookbooks that every cookie freezes well. Its the raw dough that some dont freeze well.

I wouldnt go longer then 3 months on any cookie in the freezer though, some say you can freeze longer, but I dont think they taste as good. I start now to get us through the holidays.

I have never froze decorated cookiee either! I have froze NFSC dough. cut out and then froze on the cookie sheet till I need it ! Not more then a couple weeks though ! I know Cherries freeze fine if you have those any where in a cookie. I freeze those every yr ! Made into candy and cookies!

Choc Chip, Oatmeal Choc chip, Sugar cookie, I believe those doughs freeze well....some of the more fancier cookie doughs do not.

I freeze my choc covered cherry cookies every year, and they are yummy thawed, fresh out of the oven & frozen (I get impatient sometimes icon_smile.gif )

Here is another of our favorites. Not really a "Christmas" recipe, but we love it, I'm making some today!

PB & J bars

Yields: 15 to 18 bars

Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or stick margarine, melted

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1 cup strawberry jelly (see note below)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- by 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the jelly. Beat with an electric beater on medium speed for 2 minutes, or until blended and crumbly. Reserve 1 cup of the peanut butter mixture. Spread the remaining mixture over the bottom of the baking dish. Spread the jelly evenly over the mixture and crumble the reserved peanut butter mixture over the top (With the reserved mix, sometimes I mix in PB chips with it also). Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the topping is golden. Allow to cool completely, then cut into bars and serve.

Note: You can use your favorite flavor of jam or preserves in place of the strawberry jelly

Just wanted to say that I tried the Coconut Cranberry Chews cookie reipe that may have been posted here. Whoever shared that is a real angel. It has to be one of the best cookies I have ever eaten, so if you come across the recipe--try them. It will be on the top of my list for next year.

Thanks again.
