Do You Make Dessert Ahead of Time? 5 Recipes to Make and Freeze Now
I’m preparing to bring fancy cookies to an engagement party later this week and, while trying to figure out my schedule, it dawned on me: I could just make the dough today and freeze it! Somehow my busy life and, more significantly, my last-minute nature, means I hardly ever think to make dessert in advance. Do you?
• Cookies – Freeze the dough in a log or in individual portions and bake according to the recipe: Mini Molasses Cookies with Lemon Filling
• Crème Brûlée – Freeze the custard and pick up the recipe where you left off once it has thawed: Crème Brûlée
• No Bake Desserts – The ultimate in time saving, just pull it out of the freezer and serve: No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake
• Popsicles – No, we’re not talking the Push Pop variety; grown-up popsicles make a fun and easy to prepare ahead of time treat (hint: don’t forget the booze!): Boozy Campari Citrus Pops
