I’m not a baking expert but that is a cute idea!

My MIL baked our shortbread cookie favors for our wedding. 

She made the dough a month out and froze it.  The week of the wedding, she defrosted the dough, baked all in a few batches, then wrapped them in cello bags.  They stayed fresh for about 2 weeks after.

HTH!

My mom and I bake a lot and always give out cookies at Christmas, it’s kind of expected at this point, so I really wanted to bake something for favors.

We made ours about a month a head of time. Simple sugar cookies, the same recipe we make every Christmas. They were a big circle, white icing then brushed with edible silver luster dust,and piped with a blue border and our initials.

I would suggest freezing them on a cookie sheet a single layer at a time, then putting in a air tight container with wax paper in between each layer. I wouldn’t make them much more than a month out, maybe 2 months max. They will keep for a long time but you risk the cookies developing off flavors.

We packaged them from frozen the night before and I didn’t have any problems. I was really proud how well they turned out.

Good luck!
