The Pillsbury cookie should only be in the microwave for 25-30 seconds. Any longer and the cookie burns, any shorter and it probably won’t be cooked.
While you can generally safely eat your cookie dough after it has gone past its best-by date, we always recommend doing so with extra caution and care.
And if you want to freeze cookie dough for later, both our cookie dough rolls and our Pillsbury™ Ready to Bake! ™ cookie dough can be frozen up to 2 months in advance. You’ll need to defrost the rolls of cookie dough before slicing and baking, but our Ready to Bake! ™ cookies can be made straight from the freezer.
For cookies that are already baked, here’s how to freeze them successfully for up to two months.
- Be sure the cookies are completely cooled before freezing.
- Place the cookies into an airtight container lined with aluminum foil or plastic food wrap.
- For best results, wrap the cookies individually in plastic food wrap.
