I’ve always heard that you can not re-freeze stuff.. I wouldn’t risk it for my own wedding: what if people get sick?

Maybe you can try beforehand and see how it works?

@nl:  Are you going to freeze the cookies, or freeze the cookie dough?

I think it will be fine if they thaw out for an hour and are immediately refrozen.  We drove our frozen top tier of the wedding cake from Cincinnati to NYC (12 hours) and refroze it.  It tasted fine on our anniversary.

@nl:  I would freeze as much dough as possible, and bake the cookies when you get to PA.  For the others, they won’t thoroughly thaw during a three to four hour trip if you put them in a cooler.

To freeze cookie dough, I form the dough into a log, then double wrap it with saran wrap. After that I put the logs inside a large ZipLoc bag.

Nooo!!  You can never re-freeze anything, especially meat.  And almost all cookie dough has eggs in it.

Either freeze the dough, pack it in a cooler with ice, and bake them upon arrival.  Or bake the cookies at home and drive them to PA.  Once baked, you don’t need to freeze or refrigerate them.  They should last for days in just a ziplock.

Initially I would have said no before reading your post, but 4 hours isn’t that bad of a drive, if you pack them in a cooler or other insulated bag with ice/cold pakcs for the drive that should stay frozen for 4 hours. Seriously, I have driven tons of frozen goods this way when I was in college (would stock up on stuff from BJ’s when I visited my parents) and it was still frozen when I got to my destination.
