I’m interested to know how they turn out.  I’m looking for a small edible favor to go with my “in lieu of a favor, we’ve made a donation…” cards.  I’m always looking for fun ideas.  Good luck – they sound cute! ๐Ÿ™‚

I am sure your cookies will turn out wonderful.

I am adding cookies to our candy bar/buffet, but I am going to easy route with chocolate chocolate chip and peanut butter. They will however be made with the Madagascar vanilla bean sugar and Madagascar vanilla bean extract that I also made for favors though. I just won’t be decorating the cookies.

I am doing cookie favors, but my wedding is sooooo far away I definetly haven’t made them yet. I’m just making basic sugar cookes, anyone know how long I can freeze them for? I found the cutest cutter that just fit my theme so well. All my friends think its lame, but I am making feather bouquets, there will be birdcages filled with pillar candles as centerpieces, and my flowergirl will carry the rings in a birdsnest basket so when I found the cutest little birdie cookie cutter I had to buy it! I didn’t even know what I was doing for favors till I found that cookie cutter. My theme is love-birds incase you didnt guess ๐Ÿ˜‰

Out of curiosity, how far in advance are you making your cookie favors?  I think I would hate to be frantically baking last-minute.

@crystalirene: Thank you so much, I REALLY needed to hear that. So far, all I’ve heard is it will be a waste of time to bake all those cookies, and that flowers are indeed necessary for a wedding and candles are cheap replacements. Sigh.

I’m hoping to do cookie favors, too! I’d definately like to see how yours come out. I’ve done a few trials that unfortunately failed pretty miserably. It will be fun to see that they can actually be done!

@Bostonsmom: For most simple cookies, they can last up to at least a couple of months in the freezer. When Future Mother-In-Law brings a plate of hers out, there’s no telling when she actually made them. But since she freezes them within a day or so of baking, they still taste perfectly fresh.

I think they look great! Good for you for being so ambitious and taking on the project. Your guests will love them.

You could stick with that shape but just frost them a solid color instead of doing a design on them. You can freeze them at least a month before the wedding.

I think those look so great and yummy!

Maybe freeze a few from that batch and take them out mid-February to gauge how they taste?  Then you’ll have an idea if a month is a good length of time for freezing.
