Can I make sugar cookie dough tonight and keep it in the fridge for cut out cookies tomorrow?

I want to do Christmas cookies with my girls but want to get it ready in advanced. Any good recipes or suggestions?

  • You sure can, no problem! And sometimes it even rolls out nicer when it's been chilled too, so there's an advantage! Have fun!

  • You can! I wouldn't let it sit for more than 24 hours. You may need to let it come back to room temp, depending on the recipe. Some recipes roll out better at room temp, some at fridge temp.

  • Yep, that's what I'm doing tonight so ours will be ready when we get home from work /school tomorrow but that's what my recipe says to do is chill it overnight or last least a few hours

  • Yes, in fact, the recipe I have always used for sugar cookies suggests you put it in the fridge to chill overnight.
