Do you play Christmas music while baking for the holidays? I really like the Pandora Christmas station and have that on while I’m baking. There’s something about Christmas music that relaxes me and makes me smile.

      Hi Lisa :) I haven’t personally frozen this dough. However, most cookie doughs are usually fine in the freezer. I would suggest rolling the balls, placing them on a wax paper lined cookie sheet so that none of them are touching, then freezing for a few hours. Take them out and pop them all into a freezer bag. The first freeze gets them solid enough that they won’t stick together in the bag. :) Then when you’re ready to bake, take the amount out that you want and place them on waxed paper, again not touching, until they defrost, then roll in the powdered sugar and bake.
