What type of cookies?

I wondered if you could share with me what type of cookies I could make that would be elegant enough for a wedding reception but that I could make NOW in my spare time and possibly freeze?

I have never frozen and thawed cookies before. Thanks in advance!

  • Lemon and chocolate drop cookies coated in powdered sugar. Italian wedding cookies are good also and have the powdered sugar coating as well. Scottish shortbread is awesome...with or without pecans. Black and white cookies would be uique. They kind of look like a tuxedo. A jam filled butter many possibilities! A mint chocolate cookie covered in chocolate similar to the girl scout ones.

  • I just made some awesome pumpkin spice cookies. You could freeze them then frost them just before the wedding.

  • for a wedding? about baklava? one pan, easy to make, makes alot of small elegant squares in petty cups, and it freezes well. make sure you cut it before you freeze it, and don't put it into serving cups until it's time.
    or if you have a cookie press, use a simple butter spritz type recipe and use a cutout suitable for a wedding.
    be careful of allergies, messiness of the cookies, melting frostings and chocolates, and strong spices when serving a crowd
