    Does anyone know how I can store already made home made cookies and keep them in the freezer until the holidays and not have them stick together when I take them out of the freezer?

    Freeze them on a cookie sheet with wax paper or parchament paper between the layers. When they are frozen put them in your ziploc bags.
    works for me
    Hope this helps!

    And while they're in the freezer label them as "spinach squash bean onion" so the kids and husband won't steal them.

    I have also used wax paper in between layers of fragile cookies that I place in a tupperware or plastic container to keep them from getting broken. I like the idea of labeling them peas, onions etc. I'm laughing so hard at that idea. Love it!

    I have good luck putting store bought cookies in plastic containers in freezer, stand on end. That hides them from both of us and keeps them fresh. The oatmeal raisen ones from Costco and Safeway are my favorites.

    I remember my grandma and great-aunt just storing their cookies in freezer bags and freezing them.

    Freezing cookies works great everyone should do it. :) Personally I use paper vellum, but that's due to overstocks from long ago. Parchement works just as well and costs less.

    I pack and store my homemade cookies in coffee cans in the freezer and I always use wax paper squares (about 6 inches square) that I buy for almost nothing at our local Cash 'n Carry store (they serve restaurants and other grocery stores with products). Some cookies will dry out a bit during freezing...I always taste them to check to see how well they did. If I think they taste a bit dry, I'll melt some chocolate (white, dark, peanutbutter, etc.) and dip one side of the cookie in the melted chocolate then sprinkle chopped nuts or chopped candy, ice cream sprinkles, etc. over the chocolate.......GUARANTEE, nobody has ever complained that the cookies are dry. The cookies I do this most often are sugar cookies and Spritz . They need decorating anyway so it's OK.
