Is it okay to refridgerate a cookie batter overnight and bake it the next day?

Question by Trix_R_not_4_kids: Is it okay to refridgerate a cookie batter overnight and bake it the next day?
I want to give my parents and in laws a cookie gift basket but I don’t have time to do it all at once. I need to make the mixture, bake it, then wrap it. Is it okay if I make the mixture Saturday afternoon, bake the cookies (and wrap them) Sunday evening, and give the gift on Monday morning?

    yes, many people prefer to chill the batter. chilled batter means that the butter will be cold and therefore melt slower, and the cookies will not be as flat.

    Oh yes definitely. Some recipes even require leaving the cookie dough in the fridge for a few hours. Just make sure it is wrapped tightly (either the dough or the bowl that contains the dough) and you will be fine.

    Its fine. Sometimes the cookies even come out better because the dough hold shape better.

    Happy Baking!

    Sure. Just cover the dough so it won’t dry out and
    then bake the cookies when it is convenient.
