I make a ton of cookies (both sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies) over the holiday season, but usually don't ship them out until as close to Christmas as possible. But it takes an entire day to cut out, bake and decorate my cookies so I'd like to save time by making the cookie dough in advance.
1. How long will cookie dough keep fresh in the fridge?
2. What's the best way to wrap/store it so it stays fresh?
3. Is it better to freeze the dough?
Any wisdom from those far more experienced in the kitchen than I?
